New Cartoons and a Hooked Rug
We are pleased to announce our fourth exhibition with renowned cartoonist Roz Chast including a selection of recent cartoons from The New Yorker. We will also show the two September 24th covers of "The Cartoon Issue" entitled "Bring in the Clowns" (Republican and Democrat) in which she designed two separate covers for the Reds and the Blues and each subscriber received one or the other.
Chast has developed many craft enthusiasms over the years (origami, pysanka Ukrainian painted) eggs, and recently she has begun making hooked rugs which feature her classic cast of characters. We will be showing her most recent 5'5" hooked rug on the theme of the four seasons as part of the show.
Chast has received innumerable honors and awards in her career and published over 50 notable books. She was most recently an Honoree in New York City's first "NYC Literary Honors" in the category of humor. At the ceremony Mayor Bloomberg described Chast as always finding the perfect balance between the literary and the visual.
The gallery will be closed from December 23-January 1
