We've heard many good comments in the wake of 2007 Festival of Cartoon Art: Graphic Storytelling, which took place in Columbus, Ohio on October 26 & 27. For a taste of what occurred, check out Mark Anderson's Blog HERE.
However, in this space we'll focus on 'our' part of the festivities. The Great Lakes Chapter of the NCS was called upon to organize an opening reception for early arrivals at the Thurber House Gallery on Thursday evening. Our response was an all-star exhibition of cartoon art by GLC members called Plot Threads, which showcased extended storylines and short continuities from strips and books.
Featured in the exhibition were sequences from: Frazz (Jef Mallett), The Pajama Diaries (Terri Libenson), Alien Baby (Craig Boldman), Flo & Friends (Jenny Campbell), Dream Hop (Jared Lee), Little Dog Lost (Steve Boreman), Super Sam (Daryll Collins), Agnes (Tony Cochran), Zits (Jim Borgman), and Dear Dudley (Jeff Stahler).
The exhibition runs until November 21, 2007 at Thurber House, and is open to the public by appointment. For info, contact Meg Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 614-464-1032, ext. 16.
