Show your original art at
"Cover of a Comic"
Do you love comic books, graphic novels, superheroes, or
"Calvin & Hobbes"? Perhaps you have memories of sneaking
a flashlight under the covers to read about the latest
adventures of Wonder Woman; perhaps some part of "The
Incredibles" made you laugh out loud. The Stairwell Gallery
and Legendary Comics and Tea Room want you to put your
thoughts, feelings, and ideas on paper, or wood, or sheet
metal -- any size, any medium, anything at all, for the first
annual "Cover of a Comic" exhibition!
Building on the success of three years of "Cover of a Cover",
which the Gallery sponsored with Endless Records, this year's
show uses comics as the inspiration -- and you have complete
license to let your imagination run; let's see what you can do!
Bring your completed works to the Antler, 24 East Main Street
in Bloomsburg, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, the
4th of October; the show opens on Monday the 6th and runs
through the 22nd of November, with an opening reception on
Friday, the 10th of October, 6-8 p.m.
Thanks to Jason Godeke for the three different call-for-entries
flyer designs; look for them around town!
Regional College Student Printmaking
Now on display at the Antler
This show displays prints made by
Lycoming College and Bloomsburg
University students. The works are
paired together (one from each
school) to explore similarities and
relationships that unexpectedly
happen as students work in the
various printmaking processes. To my
knowledge, all of these students are
unaware of each other’s work, and yet
it becomes eerily clear that ideas,
compositions, colors, patterns, and
other aspects of the images are
remarkably similar. Separated at their
creation by 50 miles, and in most
cases years, the collected pairs of
prints nonetheless create an
atmosphere of the Zeitgeist (the
“spirit of the age” or “spirit of the
time”). The merit of each print is
heightened when we can compare and
contrast it with a similar, yet not
directly influenced, print.
– Chad Andrews, Bloomsburg
University printmaking instructor
Thank you to Jeremiah Johnson, who
teaches printmaking at Lycoming
College, for taking the time to choose
examples from its print archive.
Without his effort, this show would not
exist. For open hours, visit our Web
