06/22/08 - Lexington Comic Art Show - Call to Artists!

Comics, cartooning and illustration works are commonly thought of as being inferior to the fine art typically displayed in art galleries. With this misconception in mind it is with a great deal of excitement that I want to announce this joint project between LexArts and CCG that we have been working on for the past several months. Thanks to Nathan Zamarron, the Community Arts Manager at LexArts, for involving the CCG in the genesis of this event. Our goal is to have submissions representative of the entire commonwealth and therein to document the talent, diversity of voice, and artistic commitment of our graphic storytellers.

The window for submitting is somewhat short - so don't delay!
The show is open to all ages with under 18 and 18 and over age categories. Comic pages, comic strips and single panel humor or editorial cartoons are all fair game for this show.

Look for more posts about this gallery show and associated events including possible lecture(s) and workshop(s). Follow this link to find the call to artists with all the information you will need to submit to the show.


  1. Doesn't look like Lexarts has posted their page yet. Better send out an update email when they do. Thanks.

  2. Stevie,

    Should be OK now, these were not posted on the LexArts site till today (see fine print on the show cards).

    If anyone else is having trouble getting to the call to artist files please let me know.


  3. Bravo to LexArts and the CCG for putting together this show. The Lexington Art League will also be showcasing Comic Artwork with the exhibition Comix in February 2009 at the Downtown Arts Center. Entry information can be found here:
