Feb 9: Whodunit - Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!




Michael AugerJesse Cohen and Roger Cutler will be at
Whodunit - Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
Saturday, February 9, 2013, 7:30pm - 10:00pm at 5710 Baltimore Ave. Hyattsville, MD 20781
Artists included in this show will either show an original from their own collection in their own style or imitate another artist's style... or maybe both! The viewers exploring the works in the show will embark on a treasure hunt as they try to determine if a piece was done by the original artist or someone else. If the piece is a copy — then who did the copy?
Update: David Hagen will be there as well.

The Picture Stories of Ben Katchor
Tuesday, March 29
7 p.m.
Members $12; Public $15
Hailed by The New York Times as "the most poetic, deeply layered artist ever to draw a comic strip," Ben Katchor has collected both a cult and mainstream following for his wry, perceptive, and slightly surreal comic strips of urban life. The author of The Jew of New York and Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer: The Beauty Supply District, Katchor's work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Forward, and Metropolis. The first cartoonist to receive a MacArthur Fellowship, Ben Katchor discusses his first book in more than 10 years, The Cardboard Valise (Random House, 2011)- the whimsical graphic novel which follows the intertwined lives of three characters who travel to the fantastical nation of Outer Canthus. A book signing follows the talk.
