    Fans can see another artistic side of John Lennon in New York City this week.

    An exhibition will feature 100 drawings and sketches by the late Beatle. It's called "Gimme Some Truth: The Artwork of John Lennon."

    The show runs Friday through Sunday at the Open House Gallery in SoHo.

    It marks what would have been Lennon's 72nd birthday.

    The works cover the years 1964 to 1980, the year Lennon was fatally shot outside his Manhattan apartment building.

    The exhibition is being presented by his widow, Yoko Ono, as well as Bag One Arts and Legacy Fine Art and Productions.

    A $2 donation is suggested, and the funds will benefit Citymeals-on-Wheels.

    Lennon's art consists of quick sketches and the Oriental technique of sumi ink drawings.
