On February 9th, from 4-7 PM, Medialia Gallery at 335 West 38th street hosted an opening reception for it’s 7th annual Panel to Panel Comic and Cartoon Art exhibit, this year entitled “One Thing Leads to Another”. Though the exhibition has been going for seven years, many comics event goers may not have heard of it or the remarkable talents it celebrates in support of the comics community. This year’s installment features the work of over 25 comics artists, and despite the heavy snows that fell on New York the previous night, the exhibit opened as planned to a substantial turnout.
TRIP CITY at one year old is quite a verbal-visual-aural beast containing over 600 items of content including comics, podcasts, essays, stories, poems, and all points in between. Where does a massively productive digital arts salon go from here? This anniversary week, co-founders Chris Miskiewicz and Jeffrey Burandt have talked to us about their digital media perspective and Dean Haspiel has admonished us about the darker side of the self-publishing machine, but today, to round off this juggernaut of interviews, award-winning photographer and writer Seth Kushner digs deep to bring us the personal lessons he’s learned while becoming a multi-medium artist via TRIP CITY.
