He’s also contributed to Image, Dark Horse, and IDW comics, on titles such as Tellos, The Perhapanauts, Savage Dragon, Invincible, TMNT, and Madman.

Manager Pete Beaudoin says, “Some of my favorite comic books are creator-owned because they expose the full range of talent behind the creator. It’s a more intimate look into their process and ideas.”

MA – Chroma Art Show

000000000000-chroma-artshow

Andrew Houle, John Cardinal, and Michael Crockett open an art show at the Montserrat Gallery on Saturday, July 30, 2016 at 5:30 PM

Press Release:

From the pages of “Chroma,” an art annual created by three Montserrat alum, a commitment was formed to showcase emerging and established artists in a vibrant and varied publication. With each volume filling a need to define the creative community in New England and giving a voice to the artists residing here.

While the co-founders (Andrew Houle ’00, John Cardinal ’99, and Michael Crockett ’97) shared overlapping years attending Montserrat, a passion for illustration, comic book culture and painting formed a bond that would later bring them to form Tryptic Press and later publish “Chroma” vol. 1.

Now together releasing “Chroma” vol. 3 & vol. 4 a thriving and supportive collective of artists has formed. Creating an uncommon home within the “Chroma Family”, bridging abstract painters, fashion photography, comic book illustrators, community based art programs, printmakers, sound-makers and even robot-makers.

With this 50 person group exhibition all points come together in some cases meeting for the very first time in person and on the walls, combining all four current volumes of artists. Creating new collaborations, new relationships, new directions for what has always been right in our own backyard; a New England Art Awakening.
