Oct 17: KAL: Daggers Drawn / Baltimore Sun & Economist Cartoonist

Since this is both in person and on Facebook, I reached out to the gallery owner who says, " We can only have about 10 folks in the gallery at a time. We will have a tent on the sidewalk with seating outside. We will rotate the people in the gallery and will be streaming to the folks outside."  KAL is one of the premiere editorial cartoonists of our day, working both in the US and England, and I strongly recommend his work.

Cartoonist / Satirist / Animator
It's an election year (as if you did not know) so we are going to have some fun with the works of KAL. 
Kevin Kallaugher is the international award-winning editorial cartoonist for The Economist magazine of London and The Baltimore Sun. We're offering his original pen & ink drawings, open edition prints along with never before released 'covers' from the Economist.

KAL will be in the gallery and treating us to a live demo. Because of restrictions, we will limit the number of folks in the gallery but will streaming to overflow on the the sidewalk.

Demo and Artist Talk Live and on Facebook Live 4:30-5:15 p.m.
