Short Run 'Marathon' Opens November 9 at Fantagraphics Bookstore
Written by Larry Reid | Filed under Short RunShannon WheelerPeter BaggeNate NealJim BlanchardFantagraphics Bookstoreeventsart shows 31 Oct 2013 12:06 PM

Marathon postcard image

The Pacific Northwest has become the center of a growing movement of handcrafted small press publishing. “Short Run Small Press Fest” is one of the country’s leading gatherings of self-publishing communities. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery curator Larry Reid has selected two dozen artists to represent this movement in “Marathon: A Short Run Art Show.” This show of original drawings, prints and publications opens on Saturday, November 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. The exhibition continues through December 11, 2013.

The Marathon title implies the epic effort often required to create a career in comix. To illustrate this concept, Reid has assembled an eclectic mix of emerging artists and accomplished cartoonists with self-publishing backgrounds. The show also acknowledges a new paradigm which affords artists the opportunity to fashion viable professions without the benefit of a major publisher. Fantagraphics Bookstore was an early advocate of the revival of small press media, which was once endangered by the ubiquity of the Internet.

Local artists Eroyn Franklin and Kelly Froh, joined by Fantagraphics Bookstore staffer Janice Headley, will present an expanded version of the annual “Short Run Small Press Fest” on Saturday, November 30 at Washington Hall in Seattle. “Marathon: A Short Run Art Show” provides a preview of festival exhibitors, including Robyn Jordan, Noel Franklin, Mita Mahato, Joe Garber, Fiona Avocado, Scott Travis, Peter Bagge, Tom Neely, Bettina McEntyre, Skill Shot, Max Badger, TBASA, Jim Blanchard, Aron Nels Steinke, Elaine Lin, and more.

The opening reception on Saturday, November 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM features musical entertainment by Tummy. This event coincides with the festive Georgetown Art Attack featuring challenging visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic art community. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.), minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM. Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.

Dave Cooper's Eddy Table and Other Misbehavers Exhibit in Ottawa!
Written by janice headley | Filed under eventsDave Cooperart shows 10 Sep 2013 11:13 AM

Oh, how ironic that Dave Cooper's pillowy female forms will be on display at the La Petite Mort Gallery in Ottawa...

But indeed, they will, in a show titled Eddy Table and Other Misbehavers! So head over there on Thursday, September 19th at 7:00 PM for a wonderful show, affiliated with the great Ottawa International Animation Festival! (You might recall, another Fantagraphics artist Max Andersson will screen first feature-length film Tito on Ice at this animation festival, too!)

Dave will have a ton of affordable drawings and doodles available, as well as a cool super-affordable, specially-priced inaugural fine art print to celebrate his new printing venture! There will also be live music, drinks, and, Dave teases, maybe even a couple of musical surprises...

La Petite Mort Gallery is located at 306 Cumberland Street in Ottawa.
