Beyond the Frame: African American Comic Book Artists
Temporary Exhibition Gallery
Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts
Beyond the Frame: African American Comic Book Artists presents the work of African American artists working in commercial, self-published, and web-based comic book and graphic novel genres. The exhibition will reflect a cross-section of artists, some well established, others emerging and active in new areas of publication, such as Internet-based web comic art.
Here are the names of the featured artist for the exhibit.
Keron Grant, Mshindo Kuumba, Leisl Adams, Ashely Woods ( not the British guy ), Jerry Craft, Kenijji Marshall, Sanford Greene, Ken Lashley, Larry Stroman, Kyle Baker,
John Jennings and Damian Duffy, N Steven Harris, Georges Jeanty, Dexter Vines, Rob Stull, Afua Richardson, Leilani Hickerson, Kieth Knight, Khary Randolph, Charles Goubile, Stacey Robinson, Eric Battle and Hannibal King.
It's an honor to be among some great artists. Check out the site if you can't make it to the show. By the way the entrance to the exhibit has the artwork to the cover I did for the Methodman GN it was also used as the cover art for the exhibit program. That was pretty cool to see!
