30 Days + 24 Hours
The Hera Gallery All Rhode Island Comic book Exhibition, Challenge, and Marketplace
Attention Rhode Island Comic Book Artists,
Challenge yourself, individually or as part of a team, to create a soul stirring, heart thumping, thought provoking, mind bending comic book/graphic novel in just 30 days and exhibit the pages you’ve made at Hera Gallery. But wait! There’s more! The opening of the exhibit will be a second challenge. This one will last only 24 hours. The gallery will be open from Noon, Saturday, July 19 to Noon, Sunday, July 20 for a concentrated blast of extreme drawing, painting, cutting and pasting. Coffee will be served. Sugar will be available in a variety of forms. Models will flex and bend and stretch and strut. Music will be performed. Movies will be shown. Artists will read from their graphic novels. Cots will be available for naps. Above all, ink will flow! Given this level of sleep deprivation, caffeine buzz, rock and roll, and collaborative energy, what will you come up with? Results of the 24-hour challenge will also go up on the gallery walls. This is also an opportunity to display and sell comic books, graphic novels, and zines you have created without a time limit. This is an open show. All submissions will be included, but registration is required. Go to the website: www.heragallery.org or call (401)783-0610 for more information.
