Last month, The Beatles’ rare collaborative abstract painting, titled “Images of a Woman,” surfaced and was auctioned off at Weiss Auctions in Oceanside, N.Y. Having attended art school and showing off his signature doodling style in the past, it came as no surprise that the late John Lennon excelled at art.

Now, an exhibition featuring Lennon’s work, called “Gimme Some Truth: The Artwork of John Lennon,” will be presented by his widow (and visual artist) Yoko Ono in collaboration with Bag One Arts and Legacy Fine Art and Productions.

The show will feature 100 of Lennon’s drawings and sketches, which he created using sumi ink, an Oriental technique. The artwork spans 16 years of Lennon’s life, from 1964 to 1980.

Marking the late Lennon’s 72nd birthday, the exhibit will be on display this Friday (Oct. 5) through Oct. 9 at 130 Prince Street in SoHo, NYC. Although the event is free, a $2 donation is preferred as the proceeds will be sent to Citymeals-on-Wheels.
