The BEASTS Go On...
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Fantagraphics BookstoreeventsBeastsart shows 8 Jan 2009 3:44 PM

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is pleased to announce the wildly popular BEASTS exhibition will be extended though February 4. Inclement weather prevented many from making the trek to Georgetown during the first weeks of the show. This extension will allow everyone to enjoy this delightfully ambitious display. Organized by Jacob Covey, this exhibition includes a diverse collection of colorful artwork by over 50 accomplished artists. (Click here for more information about the exibit.)

Paul Constant’s enthusiastic review in The Stranger observes, “The broad array of talent is impressive... I could go on for hours.” In a comprehensive feature in the Seattle Times, Michael Upchurch comments, “There’s nothing as satisfying to a reader as a detailed inventory... The visuals range from striking graphic design to comic-book gothic... which blend fantasy, pseudoscience and macabre wit to savory effect.”

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) only minutes south of downtown Seattle. Phone 206.658.0110. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00. Join us this Saturday, January 10 until 9:00 PM for the festive Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack featuring visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic neighborhood. See you all soon.

Mark Todd art show in L.A.

Official announcement:

In this new exhibition Mark Todd shows an ever deepening interest in deconstructing comic art from his childhood. "The main difference between 'Fragments' and my last showing at La Luz de Jesus is that the works seem to be getting more abstracted and there is more collage elements working into the pieces on paper," states Todd who took his first creative cues from comic books and Star Wars. In this collection of works it is apparent that these two worlds of inventive fantasy still inform his art. Todd references the past, waxes nostalgic about it, and simultaneously lends his own post-modern sensibility to it by employing a limited palette, repetition, distortion and mixed media materials including spray paint, cel-vinyl, glossy varnishes and dusty stains. Todd lives in Southern California with his wife and fellow artist, Esther Pearl Watson and their daughter Lili, an avid artist herself. Todd also co-teaches with Esther at Art Center College of Design.
