Born Nov. 27, 1976 in Pasadena, CA, Jaleel Ahmad White began working in front of the camera in commercials at the age of three, and quickly became a veteran child actor, booking appearances on everything from “The Jeffersons” (CBS, 1975-1985) to “Charlie & Co.” (CBS, 1985-86) to “Mr. Belvedere” (ABC, 1985-1990). In fact, he almost landed the role of “Rudy” on “The Cosby Show” (NBC, 1984-1992) until Bill Cosby decided to make the character a girl. White’s star-making role, however, came from a more unlikely place: a one-time guest spot on the sitcom “Family Matters” (ABC/CBS, 1989-1998) as the cartoonishly nerdy Steve Urkel. Most recently Jaleel has starred on Total Blackout and Dancing with the Stars.

Artist Rebecca Guay appears at the R. Michelson Gallery on Saturday, September 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm to celebrate the opening of her latest art exhibition “Waking.”
About the artist:
Rebecca Guay graduated from Pratt institute in 1992 has been painting professionally since she left school. She began her career as an illustrator and is highly recognized within the field. Her images have been shown and acquired by countless private collectors and several museums including the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and the American Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in NYC.
In her personal watercolors and oils; her self determined narratives, she delves deep into archetypes of masculine and feminine and deals with complex ideas of sexuality and sensuality. Her philosophy of image making is driven by the principles of creating a remarkable moment, thereby making a deep emotional connection with the viewer. Rebecca’s recent work creates an environment of lush surfaces, forms and gesture that live in a reality entirely of her own creation.

Jaime Hernandez appears on Friday, August 16th, 2013 at Minneapolis College of Art and Design as the special guest for an artist’s reception from 6:00 to 9:00 PM, surrounding a talk at 7:00 PM in Auditorium 150.
About the exhibit:
This solo exhibition features the work of renowned comic artist Jaime Hernandez who, with his brothers Gilbert and Mario, published the first issue of Love and Rockets in 1982. The black-and-white magazine ushered in a new alternative comics scene, featuring stories of high comedy and drama and spotlighting people who had rarely been seen in comics before.
Over the years the brothers developed their own storylines and spinoffs. Jaime’s Locas: The Maggie and Hopey Stories, tells the story of Maggie Chascarrillo, a bisexual, Mexican-American woman attempting to define herself in a community rife with class, race, and gender issues. As the New York Times Book Review described Locas, “These stories have all the visual smarts of film and the narrative smarts of literature….Hernandez specializes in psychological detail; we see both text and subtext immediately ….What better than to open a book that shows there is more going on than we dream of in our workaday philosophies?”
The retrospective show in MCAD Gallery will include examples of Jaime’s original drawings and publications from the early 1980s to the present.
