Carousel Comic Art at Dixon Place Gallery

14-09-03-Gallery-photo-Miriam-Katin-Manna-From-Heaven-color-pencil-drawingA show of artwork by Carousel contributors at the Dixon Place Gallery.

R. Sikoryak’s Carousel is Dixon Place’s longest continually running performance series, featuring a wide array of comic strip makers, graphic novelists, visual artists and luminaries from the downtown New York Theater and music worlds presenting work in front of a live audience. It seems only natural to show these artists’ work on Dixon Place’s Gallery walls. The exhibition will feature gag cartoons, graphic novel pages, painted storyboards and more on subjects including autobiography, classic literature, anatomy, and other heady topics.

The opening on September 3 will be followed by the Carousel performance series in the theater at 7:30pm, with live appearances by artists showing work in The Gallery.  Final performance line-up to come soon.

Featuring work by :

Brian Dewan (musician, visual artist, filmstrip creator)

Emily Flake (gag cartoonist, “The New Yorker”)

Danny Hellman (illustrator and cartoonist, “Typhon”)

Miriam Katin (graphic novels: “We Are On Our Own” and “Letting It Go”)

Jason Little (graphic novels: “Motel Art Improvement Service” and “Shutterbug Follies“)

Doug Skinner (cartoonist, “The Unknown Adjective and Other Stories”)

Jim Torok (painter and cartoonist)

Kriota Willberg (cartoonist, “(NO) PAIN!” and “Pictorial Anatomy of the Cute”)

R. Sikoryak (graphic novel: “Masterpiece Comics”)

and more!
