Don’t miss an amazing exhibition of tributes to Valentina, the signature character of late cartoonist Guido Crepax, opening this Saturday at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. A delightfully diverse group of local, national, and international artists contributed original art in homage to the Italian master. Americans Benjamin Marra, David Lasky, Roberta Gregory, George Pratt, Mark Wheatley, and Peter Kuper, are joined by Javier Olivares, Sandra Hernandez and Pedro Espinosa of Spain, and Argentine artists Mister ED and Santiago Caruso. The art show will be complemented by continuously screening film shorts by Brazilian artist Alex Korolkovas and a special sound installation by Sérgio Rocha of Portugal.
This spectacular show coincides with the colorful Georgetown Art Attack featuring free visual and performing arts presentations throughout the historic art community. Fantagraphics Bookstore is located at 1201 S. Vale Street (at Airport Way S.) only minutes south of downtown Seattle. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. See you all this Saturday.
