Mort Drucker- Photo by Ruby Washington for the New York Times
The Lovely Anna and I are headed to New York City on Thursday in part to attend the opening of the Long Island chapter (otherwise known as the Berndt Toast Gang) of the National Cartoonists Society‘s art show “Laugh Lines” at the Art-trium Gallery on Melville Park Road in Melville. The show is going to feature original art by the members of the Long Islad chapter including Mort Drucker, Ray Alma, John Reiner, Adrian Sinnott and my good buddy Ed Steckley. There are lots of other artists but those are the ones I am sure will be included, so my apologies to those left out of my limited list.
Should be a great show. Ed is a talented illustrator who well deserves this honor. Congrats Ed and all the artists who’s work is hanging in the exhibit.
You have to love all the shows of original cartoon work going on around the country right now. Sergio and I both have shows going, there is the one in Aitkin I was just at last week. The Cartoon Art Museum in San Fransisco and the Museum of Cartoon Art in New York have constant exhibits, and of course the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa is permanent celebration of the incomparable Peanuts. The Ohio State Cartoon Library and Museum will be moving into a new facility with space for a lot more exhibits as well. No doubt there are many I don’t know about going on or planned right now.
It just goes to show that cartooning is well accepted by the general public as a well respected art form, and one people are interested in seeing in galleries.
