Thank you so much to everyone who made it out to The Strand last night as our own Gary Groth chatted with the legendary cartoonist Jack Davis! If you missed out, or you're just MAD for more, you're in luck!
Tonight, Friday, December 2nd, the Scott Eder Gallery in Brooklyn is proud to present an exhibit showcasing Jack Davis: Drawing American Pop Culture, with the artist himself in attendance! (And it's his birthday so you can wish him a happy birthday in person!)
In his first solo exhibition at the gallery, the iconic artist will present a collection of his ingenious drawings from across his half-century long career. Included are watercolors used on the cover of Time and TV Guide; comic book pages from MAD; Davis' famously gnarled football illustrations; and a rogue's gallery of cowboys, hunters and frustrated politicians. Plus, there will be a surprise or two from his classic Bill Gaines' 1950's EC Comics The Crypt of Terror and Two-Fisted Tales. This exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the process and career trajectory one of America's greatest visual commentators.
Join Jack Davis at the opening reception, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the Scott Eder Gallery [ 18 Bridge St. #2i, Brooklyn ]. This exhibit is presented in conjunction with The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival (where you can also meet Jack on Saturday, December 3rd)!
