VA – Superheroes and Superstars Exhibition

Press Release:

Superheroes and Superstars: The Works of Alex Ross—a new exhibition featuring the work of one of the world’s greatest comic book artists—will be on view in the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) from February 11 through May 14, 2017.

The MSV is the first venue to host this traveling exhibition, which has been organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The exhibition’s MSV display is sponsored by Shenandoah Country Q102.

According to Superheroes and Superstars curator Jesse Kowalski, Alex Ross has revitalized classic superheroes into works of fine art with his unique, painted photo-realistic style.

“The MSV is thrilled to be the first venue to present Superheroes and Superstars,” notes MSV Executive Director Dana Hand Evans, who adds that the Museum jumped at the chance to bring the exhibition to the region. “Alex Ross is one of the premier illustrators of our time,” says Evans. Along with offering comic book fans a rare opportunity to see Ross’s original artwork of classic superheroes, such as Wonder Woman, Superman, and Spider-Man, Evans says the exhibition illustrates the Museum’s commitment to present contemporary art in the Shenandoah Valley.

Superheroes and Superstars includes more than 100 original works created by Alex Ross, all on public display for the first time. Most of the works in the exhibition are on loan from Ross’s personal collection.

The new exhibition features Alex Ross’s well-known images of superheroes, villains, and his recent paintings of popular culture icons, such as The Beatles and Monty Python. Paintings, sketches, and models from his childhood and college years will also be on view, including “Spidey” booklets that Ross created at the age of four, action figures he made when he was 11 years old, and a self-portrait for a high school art class. Some of Ross’s more recent works in Superheroes and Superstars include A Tale of Two Reeves, a 2016 painting illustrating the two actors audiences most identify with Superman; the 2016 Hulk Marvelmania poster painting; Flash Gordon, a 2015 painting marking the 35th anniversary of the Flash Gordon film; and Ross’s variant cover for Star Wars #1, an homage to the original 1977 issue for Marvel’s relaunch of the classic Star Wars comic book series.

The MSV will host an opening reception for the exhibition from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 11. Those interested in attending should register in advance at www.theMSV.org/AlexRoss or by calling 540-662-1473, ext. 240. The fee to attend the reception—which is sponsored by the Bank of Clarke County and includes admission to the exhibition and coffee and pastries—is free to MSV Members and $20 for all others.

From 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, the MSV will host Alex Ross for a rare signing event. Prints and Alex Ross merchandise will be available for purchase in the Museum Store. Those interested in attending the signing may bring up to three items per person (no sketches and/or portfolio reviews).  While a fee is not required to attend the signing event, MSV admission will apply to view Superheroes and Superstars.

A regional cultural center, the MSV is located at 901 Amherst Street in Winchester, Virginia. The MSV includes galleries, the Glen Burnie House, and seven acres of gardens. The galleries and exhibitions are open year-round; the house and gardens are open April through December. The site is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. January through March and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April through December. Admission is $10 or $8 for seniors and youth ages 13 to 18. General admission is always free to youth ages 12 and under and to MSV Members. Thanks to sponsor Howard Shockey & Sons, Inc., admission is free to all every Wednesday. Additional details about the exhibition and a variety of complementary programs are available at www.theMSV.org or by calling 540-662-1473, ext. 235.

About Alex Ross:

Alex Ross was born in Portland, Oregon, in 1970 and raised in Lubbock, Texas. At just three years of age, he was drawing television commercials from memory. By the time Alex Ross was 13, he was drawing and scripting comic books. At the age of 17, Ross enrolled in the American Academy of Art in Chicago.

Alex Ross began his professional career as a storyboard artist for an advertising agency. When he was 19, Alex Ross received his first comic book assignment from NOW Comics – to illustrate the comic book series, Terminator: The Burning Earth. Five years later, Ross created the illustrations and cover art for Marvels (1994), a comic book series co-written by Kurt Busiek which featured Marvel’s central characters, such as Spider-Man, the Human Torch, Captain America, and Galactus. His sophomore project, Kingdom Come (1996), was a comic book series in which an alternate DC Universe is filled with aging superheroes, including Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Green Lantern, who come out of retirement to fight a new generation of superhuman beings.

Alex Ross won the Comic Buyer’s Guide Award for Favorite Painter seven times in a row, resulting in the retirement of the category.

In recent years, Ross has applied his artistic skills to outside projects with comic book roots, including a limited-edition promotional poster for the Academy Awards. In 2015, Alex was chosen by Apple Corps LTD to be commissioned as the first artist in more than 30 years to paint the Fab Four. Driven by the legendary music of The Beatles and inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, Yellow Submarine is a classic of animated cinema. Alex has often been referred to as “the Norman Rockwell of comics.”  Even so, his Yellow Submarine artwork reveals the similarly powerful influence of master surrealist Salvador Dali, whom Alex has also recognized as a guiding influence on his style. To learn more, visit www.alexrossart.com.

FL – Moonglow Signing

000-moonglow-chabon

Author Michael Chabon presents his new novel MOONGLOW at Books & Books on Monday, December 12, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

In MOONGLOW, Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon turns his own family history into fiction as he imagines the murky origins and murkier fate of Chabon Scientific Company, a mail-order novelty business.  This expansive narrative unfolds as an old man’s deathbed confession to his grandson; over the course of his final week, the man leaves a dizzying legacy of half-revealed secrets and shocking revelations as he looks back over a tumultuous century and relives scenes from an impoverished childhood in south Philadelphia, wartime Europe, a prison in upstate New York, and the American space program.

About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.

Author Michael Chabon presents his new novel MOONGLOW on Thursday, December 15, 2016 at 7:00 PM. Presented by Bookshop Santa Cruz, tickets at the link…

In MOONGLOW, Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Chabon turns his own family history into fiction as he imagines the murky origins and murkier fate of Chabon Scientific Company, a mail-order novelty business.  This expansive narrative unfolds as an old man’s deathbed confession to his grandson; over the course of his final week, the man leaves a dizzying legacy of half-revealed secrets and shocking revelations as he looks back over a tumultuous century and relives scenes from an impoverished childhood in south Philadelphia, wartime Europe, a prison in upstate New York, and the American space program.

About this author:
Michael Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay — an epic novel that charts 16 years in the lives of Sammy Clay and Joe Kavalier, two Jewish cousins who create a popular series of comic books in the early 1940s, the years leading up to the U.S. entry into World War II. In addition to novels, including the now-classic Wonder Boys, Chabon has also produced short stories, screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.
