April 7, 2011 - April 30, 2011
Cartoon art is one of the most potent communication tools in the world. It connects with young and old alike, with the urbane and the isolated, here at home and in the furthest reaches of the world. Comics are a primary source of social commentary, whether through political cartoons, comic books or graphic novels.
In this context, Nisus Gallery brings together many similar but different comic styles to comment on the artists’ interplay between storytelling, pictures and words and the evolving lexicon to which they contribute.
Show opens April 7th, 2011.
Nisus Gallery and the Center for Cartooning Studies (VT) have partnered on a group showing of comic artists. There will be hung works as well as a pop up store of mini-comics and books.

The hung portion of the show features original works, complemented by the books and minicomics (hand-made, self-published comics) those original pieces were destined to become.
