Curated by Susan Kirtley and Karen E. Roehr

Press Release:

University Gallery at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell is proud to present an exhibition of works from exciting contemporary graphic novelists working in a variety of genres. From lauded stalwarts to up-and-coming artists, A Picture’s Worth demonstrates the diversity and range of graphic narratives, a medium know for innovative pairings of text and image to convey stories. The exhibition features works from Lynda Barry, the Eisner-winning visionary who created the cult favorite comic strip Ernie Pook’s Comeek, as well as the graphic novel One Hundred Demons and the creative workbooks What It Is and Picture This. Works from James Sturm, also an Eisner winner and co-founder of the Center for Cartoon Studies demonstrate his highly literate and literary style. Innovative artist and City Lights for Children Award winner Gareth Hinds illustrates the challenges of adapting classic literature into graphic narratives with his renditions of Beowulf and The Odyssey, while emerging artist Liz Prince depicts the adolescent experience in excruciating detail in Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed, winner of the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Debut in 2005. Matt Phelan brings his whimsical aesthetic to a younger audience, including his Scott O’Dell winning book for Historical Fiction, The Storm in the Barn, and Veronica Fish vividly re-invents gothic horror with humor and wit in her highly anticipated series Pirates of Mars and her soon-to-be-released Frankenstein. Altogether this talented group will illustrate in grand fashion precisely what a picture is worth.

Susan Kirtley is Assistant Professor of English at Portland State University in Portland, OR, and a former member of the University of Massachusetts Lowell faculty. She is author the forthcoming (March 2012) biography, Lynda Barry: Girlhood Through the Looking Glass.

Karen E. Roehr is Associate Professor of Art with the Art Department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, teaching courses in graphic design and typography.

James Welborn, founder of Hub Comics, died on May 23rd, 2011. Originally from Nevada, James came to Massachusetts to work in the computer industry. He always loved comic books, and wanted to raise awareness that comics could tell any story and be read by anyone of any age. He built Hub Comics to be not only a comic shop, but a friendly neighborhood destination for fans, artists, children, and families. His smile and gentle greeting of “How’s it going?” will be missed by Union Square.

A trust fund has been set up to provide for James’s family. Please contact Hub Comics for more information.
