I crashed the group show




Hey guys! Tonight is the opening of the group show that I'm in at the Arlington Art Center. Actually, I don't know how I got in this show. I have some of my daily doodles and color sketch pages on display along side some wonderful cartoonists and painters and sculptors! Anyway if you are in the D.C/Virginia area this time of year, make sure to check it out.

THE SHOW: PARTY CRASHERS mashes up comic art and contemporary gallery culture, and features artists who pass back and forth between the two worlds. This massive two venue show results from a crosstown collaboration between AAC Director of Exhibitions Jeffry Cudlin and Artisphere Gallery Director Cynthia Connolly. The show’s two independent halves feature different types of work: Connolly’s show presents fine artists who mimic the appearance of comic art; Cudlin’s show at AAC contains:

• alternative comic artists who also show their original pages and drawings in art galleries
• fine and comic artists working side-by-side on a national curated project (Creative Time Comics)
• fine and comic artists creating avante-garde, purely abstract sequential art without words or recognizeable imagery
