Here's some Teeny Weeny you probably haven't seen if you don't buy Nick Mag. I just dragged it out to send to a local newspaper, to promote a local gallery exhibit of local cartoonists. Read all about it!
"Accounts of Events: Narrative Works by Connecticut Valley Artists"
The Connecticut Valley is home to a wide range of cartoonists; comic-book and comic-strip artists, writers, and publishers; and scholars commenting on cartoons and comics. This group exhibition shows the narrative art of cartoon and cartoon-related artists in New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Western Massachusetts.
“Accounts of Events” aims to present a number of varied works which ask us to consider the ways in which we understand both narrative and reading. We are taught to associate words and pictures, but what happens when such things move out of the realm of how we're taught to consider comics and into a more explicit narrative structure? How does this act shift what we understand about 'reading' and about 'narrative'?
“Accounts of Events” is a group show, exhibiting at Greenfield Community College Downtown Center in April and May. Participants include Greenfield illustrator Sarah Adam, Recorder editorial cartoonist E. J. Barnes, humorous glass painter Helena Dooley, Looking for a Face Like Mine author Prof. William H. Foster III, '60s underground cartoonist Gary Hallgren, Dr. Birdley writer and artist Nevin Katz, Nickelodeon Magazine illustrator Mark Martin, Pop Culture's Kids creator Mark Stacy, Trees & Hills Comics Group co-founder Colin Tedford, and autobiographical comix artist Anne Thalheimer.
GCC Downtown Center is at 270 Main Street, Greenfield. The exhibit will run from 1 April through 29 May, with an artists' reception on Tuesday, 8 April, 6 p.m. -- 8 p.m. The Downtown Center is open to the public Monday through Thursday 8 a.m.-- 9 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. -- 4 p.m.
