Exhibition runs through Sunday, July 14th, 2013
Gallery Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 12 to 4 pm
Karen Gillmore releases her first comic book, “Telling Tales”, a collection of graphic short stories. Gillmore’s background in illustration is reflected in the diverse treatments of the stories: a sepia-toned reminiscence of childhood horse lessons; a delicate pen-and-ink rendition of an ancient Scottish ballad; a watercolour and ink brush-drawn tale of Vancouver Island’s Cougar Annie; a tightly rendered ink-wash story of an irresistible cat; and more.
The book launch and exhibition of the original artwork for the book is for one weekend only, July 12–14. Original artwork from the book, as well as thumbnails and character drawings, will take the viewer on a journey through the making of the book. The artist will give a talk about her thoughts and processes in the making of the book at the opening reception, starting at 7:30.
