Laugh-A-Lot On The High Road
The High Road Gallery at 12 E. Stafford Ave in Worthington announces a show to warm you up and break the monotony of the grey winter weather: “Laughs at Lakeside” : Cartoon and Graphic Arts by Ohio artists. With the cooperation of the National Cartoonists Society Great Lakes Chapter, Steve Boreman is chair of the show. Cartoonists will exhibit framed or matted originals and prints. Artists whose work will be on exhibit include Russell Merritt, Ron Hill, Susan Sturgell, Paul Palnik, Judith Vierow, and Sunday Comixers Matt Wyatt & Max Ink. The show dates are January 30 through February 23.
All are invited to the free Artists' reception on Sunday, February 3rd, from 2-4 PM. “Sunday Comix”, a cartoonists' group, will do a “jam session” during the opening in which all artists are invited to a progressive cartoon, adding their skills to the panels as they are drawn. Mike Patrick will select prizes for entries in the show and awards will be given at the reception.
Three dimensional additions to the show are enamel pins by Susan Hunt and felted vessels by Suzanne Pusecker.
