Here’s the official press release for a show I’m proud to be part of - Gag me With a Toon 5!
Rewind to the sugar highs of childhood Saturday mornings and “toon” in on May 4th to this year’s Gag Me with a Toon 5 presented by WWA Gallery and curated by artists Steven Daily and Tomi Monstre. This much-loved annual exhibit has artists re-imagining the cartoons of their youth and what results are some totally tubular recreations of iconic characters spanning the 1960s-1990s!
Throughout previous Gag Me with a Toon events, G.I. Joes, Ninja Turtles, Smurfs, Thundercats, The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Jem, Scooby Doo, The Super Friends and gobs more have starred in artistic interpretations fused with social commentary, pop-culture references, humor, satire and sex appeal.
Viewers will be hooked on the zany creations by over 30 Gag Me with a Toon 5 artists. In the past we’ve seen Wonder Woman and Superman drinking their troubles away, Scooby Doo with a gun to his head, and Smurf orgies: tune in to see this far-out exhibit that cannot be missed!
Open to the public, the gallery reception for Gag Me with a Toon 5 is from 7 – 10PM on Saturday, May 4th. The first 100 attendees opening night will receive a limited edition print.
The exhibition will run until June 1st, 2013.
