Panel Show will be a seven week long exhibition of comic book art in the Gallery at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley, near Leeds. It will launch with an opening party at the Gallery on 21 September and will close on Sunday November 10th.
Co-curated by Leeds-based illustrator/artist Si Smith (whose comic ‘How To Disappear Completely’ was recently published by Valley Press) and local Arts producer Dick Bonham (of Little Mighty Productions) the exhibition will include the work of between thirty and forty diverse comic book artists, and will explore a range of comic genres – from knockabout kids comics and mainstream superhero stories through to more confessional and experimental narratives.
The exhibition that will work for those with little or no comic-reading history, whilst also providing something more substantial and critical for the comics cognoscenti to engage with. The exhibition will explore not just the end product of the comic artists work, but also some of the processes involved. Panel show will not display just finished artwork on the walls, but also pencils, inked pages, thumbnails, layouts and concept designs.
