In conjunction with the exhibition Comic Art: Fantasy and Imagination, the Ann Street Gallery will be hosting a Gallery Talk with Arlen Schumer on the relationship between "Art & Comic Book Art" on Saturday, April 2 at 2 p.m.
 
Just as art historians look back 500 years ago on the great Renaissance masters of the human figure like Michelangelo and Raphael, so too will art historians 500 years from now look back on the great masters of the human figure of our time, our great comic book artists like Jack Kirby, Neal Adams, Joe Kubert, Carmine Infantino, Gil Kane—to name a few. Yet in fine art circles, it is still considered "blasphemous" to compare/contrast the two sets of artists. Join comic book art historian Arlen Schumer (The Silver Age of Comic Book Art) as he does just that, with his provocative, perceptive presentation, comparing and contrasting the great artists and great artworks from the worlds of fine art and comic books, curating a fascinating journey through art...and comic book art! 
 
This event is free and open to the public. For more information call (845) 784-1146 or http://www.safe-harbors.org/events/arlen-schumer/
