The Gallery Project
Gallery Project presents Visual Storytelling, a multi-media exhibit showcasing the craft and imagination of a young generation of artists nationally known for their iconic graphic illustrations and gripping sequential narratives. The exhibit opens at noon on Wednesday, April 15, and runs until 4 on Sunday, May 24. The reception is on Friday, April 17, from 6-9.
The artists of Visual Storytelling enjoy life in virtual worlds of their own creation. In these worlds, heroes, villains and otherworldly creatures reign, waging battles for dominance and survival and questing for clarity and truth in an uncertain world. The illustrations and visual narrations that weave their stories are the subject matter of this exhibit. Media include single page sequences, individual illustrations, roundabouts (process of creating a character), sketchbooks, videos, models, and storyboards.
Artist in the exhibit include Jeremy Bastian (Cursed Pirate Girl), Joshua Cotter, Guy Davis (Hellboy and Zombie that Ate the World), David Dwonch, Matt Busch, Katie Cook (Tricks of the Trade), Jay Fosgitt, Anthony Fontana (Second Life stories), Otis Frampton (Oddly Normal), Jamie Dee Galey, Jessica Hickman, Tom Hodges, Keeli McCarthy (Lot’s Daughters), Jake and Matt Minor, Jon Morris (Calamity Jon), David Petersen (Mouse Guard), Nate Pride, Nick Sousanis, Paul Taylor (Wapsi Square), Adam Winnie (a take on Little Red Riding Hood), among others.
The exhibit is curated by three Ann Arborites: former Star Wars illustrator Katie Cook, graphic designer Ryan N. Wilcox, and Gallery Project collaborator, Matt Degenaro.
