Celebrate 7 Years of Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery with “cARToons: The Art of Alternative Comix” on December 14.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery opened seven years ago in a deserted south Seattle industrial district. In the intervening years, both the bookstore and the neighborhood have woven themselves into the cultural fabric of the region. Celebrate the impact of this unique urban enterprise on Saturday, December 14 with a festive holiday gala and opening reception for “cARToons: The Art of Alternative Comix.”

From its inception, the showroom for Seattle-based publisher Fantagraphics Books has endeavored to demonstrate the contributions of comix to contemporary culture. “cARToons: The Art of Alternative Comix” features the work of six narrative artists who elevate the medium. The exhibition features Jeremy EatonEllen Forney, Damon Gentry, John Ohannesian, Jesse Reklaw, and Jim Woodring. Exhibiting artists will be present to sign recent publications at the opening on Saturday, December 14 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.

In addition to his role as Fantagraphics Bookstore curator, Larry Reid serves as president of the Georgetown Merchants Association (GMA), which played a pivotal role in revitalizing the formerly neglected business district. The bookstore’s anniversary celebration coincides with the holiday edition of the Georgetown Art Attack, a monthly promotion of the GMA. Dozens of visual and performing arts presentations take place throughout the historic neighborhood, including wandering carolers from Choir of the Sound featuring our own Lynn Emmert.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.), only minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206.658.0110.
