IT'S a massive line up - but this time it's visual, not aural.

Open Studio is presenting a brand new exhibition, Black & White All in Between, opening tomorrow at 6pm, fresh from its wildly popular run at Sydney's reknowned Ambush Gallery.

The gallery and workspace of local artist Ash Johnston, Vernon Street's Open Studio will play host to the works of over 70 Australian and international artists known for their technicolour  creations in various mediums.

The twist? This exhibition marks a massive chance for these bright artists - it's all in black and white.

The parameters of Black & White All In Between are basic: to create works uniform in size and using only black ink.

Proposed to a diverse range of illustrators, fine artists, street legends and graffiti greats, the concept removes the comfort of colour from the artists' process and challenges them to develop work driven by composition, form and tone.

As well as a chance to see work by some of the world's most exciting contemporary artists, Black & White All In Between gives you that chance to take the work home with you.

The high quality pieces are all priced affordably - accessible art is a priority of both Open Studio and Black & White's curator Dion Zancanaro.

It's going to be a very lively vibe at the opening, with catering sponsors and live music performed by DJs Duckee, Torque and Seiz, along with featured artists in attendance will be painting the side wall of the studio during the exhibition.

Add to this fun free stuff from Scribe Apparel, ONES Clothing, Acclaim Magazine, Clouded Thoughts Magazine and Ironlak and Phable, and you've got a gigantic evening of much more than grayscale.
