Paul Guinan & Anina Bennett appear on Friday, June 24th, 2011 from 7:00 – 10:00PM.
Things From Another World (TFAW) is proud to announce an art opening and book preview with local artist Paul Guinan and writer Anina Bennett, who will be special guests at this year’s Comic-Con International. Portlanders can meet them–without traveling to San Diego–at TFAW’s Hollywood location at 4133 NE Sandy, Portland, OR, on June 24 from 7 to 10 pm. Guests are invited to view an extraordinary collection of pieces while enjoying complimentary food, beer, and wine (with valid ID).
The art show will feature a selection of prints and a rare display of toys and artifacts from Paul and Anina’s Emperor Norton Award-winning book, Boilerplate: History’s Mechanical Marvel, which was recently optioned by J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Lost). The exhibit will also include a sneak preview of artwork from their upcoming book, Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention, the chronicle of a family of steampunk inventors. In addition, Paul will present the first public showing of an elaborate model of Frank Reade’s electric battle-wagon, Valiant, which he built for the new book. Copies of Boilerplate will be available for purchase and signing.
