Upcoming: Villain at Mission Comics
March is a whirlwind of art events, new paintings, prints, and hints of projects soon to come! Next up, “Villain”, a group show dedicated to villains both pre-existing and imagined, curated by Ben Collison. The show will (appropriately) be hanging at Mission Comics & Art, which has a beautiful back-room gallery space. I’m really excited, it’s a great space, and the artists involved are great company! Here’s the official press release, plus a link to the Facebook invitation:

“Mission Comics & Art is pleased to announce “Villain”, curated by Ben Collison. Featuring local San Francisco artists as well as artists from Portland and New York. “Villain” celebrates the evil doer, that good for nothing villain. It’s the great villains that makes stories interesting, from Moriarty to Blofeld to DR.Doom to Lex Luthor, and the list goes on…. Villains can be doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, or just down and out evil! But either way, this artwork will display all their nasty and nefariousness.
Hor d’oeuvres and complimentary drinks will be served (wine will be available to our 21+ guests). The exhibition will be on display through April 9, 2012 and is free and open to the public.
Hours of operation are Tuesday thru Sunday, 12pm-8pm, or anytime online at www.missioncomicsandart.com.”
