COMIX OK looks at the thriving artistic culture of comics in Oklahoma. The comics genre is wide ranging and hard to precisely define, encompassing comic books, zines, graphic novels and related forms of sequential art, as well as the universes created by comic artists of superheroes, fantasy, mythology and science fiction. The exhibition will feature well-established Oklahoma comic artists -- including Arigon Starr, Melanie Gillman, Jerry Bennett, Dustin Oswald, Johnnie Diacon and Natasha Alterici -- as well as emerging artists selected through an open call.
Save the date for ContempCon, a FREE two-day comic convention: April 21-22. The con will feature workshops, drop-in studios for kids and adults, panel discussions, 30+ artist, publisher and vendor booths, storytimes, board games, a movie screening and other activities for families, artists and fans of the genre. Watch our website and Facebook page for emerging details.
