Correction: The Colacino Gallery at Nazareth will only be open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 12-5, not Mondays through Saturdays, as previously posted. Sorry for the flub!

“We’ve got a really big shoooooe for you tonight!”
(Unrelated, but upon typing “Show” in the title, I wanted to add that.)

Due to the good graces of my friends Tom Galambos and Greg Lendeck, I’m participating in my first ever art gallery show starting today, and running through the first week of February, at the Margaret Colacino Gallery at Nazareth College, in Rochester, NY.

The show, titled “Instances,” features a large collection of our sequential art work, including over 40 big-as-life prints of my strips. It also features a “process wall,” on which the three of us will be directly painting a collaborative comic work during the run of the show. It promises to be quite a hoot. I’ll be posting some portions of the work here, but to get the full effect, you’ll definitely want to visit the gallery!

Due to the nature of the process wall, rather than an opening reception, we’ll be having a closing reception on Friday, February 5, from 6-8pm (all are welcome). The gallery itself is open Wednesday through Saturday from 12-5pm.
