(From Panter's 2013 Fredericks & Frasier exhibit)
Thursday, September 4th
Influential cartoonist, painter, and professor, Gary Panter, will be celebrating his newst work during an art exhibition at Fredericks & Frasier Gallery with an opening reception on September 4th, from 6-8 PM!
Surreal pop art, with a day-glo vibe. Or expressionistic sci-fi and punk cartoons. Maybe imaginative, and super saturated set designs. How about shoe illustrator? All of these things describe the award winning artist throughout his extensive and impressive career. Be a part of the brilliant madness with his third exhibition installment at the Chelsea gallery, that will open early on August 26th, and run through September 27th. Featuring original paintings and bead lists, which aesthetically sounds like the best thing ever.
Fredericks & Freiser Gallery 536 W 24th St NY, NY 10011

Lance's bio from the website:
"Chances are you probably know Lance. Sometimes it seems like everyone does. He was born and raised in Seattle and began photographing the local music scene at the age of 13. Earning a reputation with his energetic and honest photographs, Lance got involved in some of the most legendary musical movements Seattle had to offer, including working as the official photographer for Pearl Jam in the 1990's. His work can be found in some of your favorite albums, in museums and galleries around the country, and in any music publication you can think of. In the 2000s he took some time off from photography to travel the world with his own band, Seattle punk spectacular The Briefs. And in recent years he has spent time engrossed in a wide array of projects from curating installations for Nordstrom to traveling to Nepal and documenting the grass roots Sherpa cultural identity for their 2012 Spring catalog ‘Sherpa Adventure Gear'.
Lance has been in recovery for over 10 years and one of his greatest passions in life is extending the hand of service to help others in need. He has worked cloesly with the MusiCares foundation to assist other artists struggling with addiction. He's helped countless individuals on the road to recovery and he is always there. Whether its to offer a place to stay, a ride, an ear to listen, or advice. Now its time for us to be there for him."
Along with Dan Ibarra of Aesthetic Apparatus, Zak Sally aims to create an educational system derived from what the students want to learn instead of hitting goals to earn a degree. Money made from the campaign will go towards many student's tuition. Minneapolis is already the home of many amazing book-friendly places like MCAD itself, Minneapolis Center for Book Arts, stores like Big Brain or Magers & Quinn; Ibarra and Sally's work in printing and education is definitely something the locals can sink their teeth into. Check out the Kickstarter and throw a few bucks their way, they have all sorts of beautiful rewards from screenprinted aprons to object books like the one below.
This July, the talented and incredible Eleanor Davis and Esther Pearl Watson will descend upon the Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery with the fury of a thousand suns, scorching earth and people in their paths.

We'll have brand, spanking new copies of How to Be Happy and Unlovable 3 for you (feel free to bring your other EPW and Davis books from your shelves)
The original art exhibition continues through September 10, 2014. This events coincides, as we mentioned, with the festive Georgetown Garden Walk so you'll have a tulip trip of a time visiting all the shops and gardens throughout the historic neighborhood. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street, just minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
Ron Regé, Jr has the esteemed pleasure of being named the Cinders Gallery Artist of the Month! Cinders interviews Regé all about his comics creative process, his band Lavender Diamond, magick and even the last good movie he saw (a 1981 animated film, Ferherlofia aka Son of the White Mare). You'll notice that Rege is also sporting a very UNIQUE pair of leggings made from his Cartoon Utopia cover. The leggings are almost as hypnotizing as the book!
Think you have all the Regé books and what not out there? Cinders also has a limited edition print available on their site, there are only 30 left so get one now!
In one of the cooler videos to hit the internet lately, comics enthusiast and scholar Allen Rubenstein created a video of the 1000 Greatest Comics of all Time AND set it to "Wipe Out" by the Sufaris (so already won a place in our hearts). At home on Comics Juice, Rubenstein's video contains some great heavyweights like Maus, Blankets and bunch of Fantagraphics' titles from Nancy by Ernie Bushmiller to the newer Eisner-nominated Good Dog by Graham Chaffee.
Think you were able to see all the comics, like the Fanta-ones? Check the list and see if you won this game! And is there anything more beautiful than the patterns and rhythms created by the fast-scrolling book covers? I think not.
