The Northville Art House presents the exhibition POW! Juried Comic Art Exhibition featuring 38 works of comic, or comic-inspired, art created by 22 artists and selected by juror, Jim Anderson.
Comic art can be defined as an image or series of images, often displayed together and combined with text, to tell a story. Comic Art also functions as an avenue for visual experimentation and modes of self-expression for many artists.
The artists participating in the exhibition include Elisa Albrecht, Kathleen Brenowitz, Joanne Cook, Terence Cover, Adrienne Dunkerley, Kayleigh Fogle, Shayauna Glover, Adam Helner, Jessica Justice, Peggy Kerwan, Jennifer Kesler, Travis Matchulat, Brandon McDonald, Mike Ortiz, Megan Roethler, Jan Ross, Shannon Schmidt, Billy Tackett, Aaron Underwood, Babelon Williams, Todd Zapoli, and Emily Zelasko.
Cartoonist Jim Anderson has been a fan of comics since he was small, and has been making them for almost as long. He is currently the creator of the comic strip Ellie On Planet X, as well as an illustrator and graphic designer. See more about Jim Anderson and Ellie on Planet X at ellieonplanetx.com.
