I’m proud to announce my first art gallery exhibition, of works that span my entire career, at Art on A Gallery in New York City, May 1-June 5, 2014! Plus lectures & other events (scroll down)! From the press release:
"The Art of Arlen Schumer" contains originals, prints and posters spanning 1978-2014 that cover the career of this artist, author, graphic designer, illustrator and American pop culture/comic book art historian—from images created for one of Bruce Springsteen’s most legendary concerts in 1978 while a student at Rhode Island School of Design, to comic book-style commercial illustrations for magazines, greeting cards and off-Broadway show posters, to comic book art history works and more autobiographical imagery. From Springsteen to Superman, from Christ to Captain Israel, you’ll be surprised at the spectrum Schumer’s artworks span.
In addition to the exhibition, Mr. Schumer will be presenting a series of lectures each Thursday evening of the exhibition’s duration that give background and context to his exhibited works:
All lectures begin at 6:00pm.
And on May 22, there’ll be a Comic Costume Party in the Gallery, as Geminis Schumer (June 6) and Gallery manager/curator Grace Perez (May 28) celebrate their birthdays together! Come dressed as your favorite comic book character! The party begins at 6:00pm!
