Sequencial Art: Comics and Beyond
Open Walls Group Show
Opening Reception: Friday, May 27 6-9pm
Sequential art emphasizes the pictorial representation of a narrative. Dating back to such ancient art forms as cave paintings and Egyptian hieroglyphs, sequential art has a long history. And it has seen a vibrant resurgence in the present, spanning a spectrum that includes such modes as comic strips, cartoons, graphic novels, storyboards, Manga, children’s tales and game design. Sequential cartoon style artwork even features heavily in the Hentai genre of adult entertainment. You can learn more about cartoon erotica on websites such as cartoonporno.xxx. This exhibit seeks to explore the range of work being produced by graphic artists currently working in the medium of sequential art.
