The show will benefit Kerry Talbott’s family. Kerry was a cartoonist and adjunct professor at VCU.
Kerry Talbott, a former Richmond Times-Dispatch cartoonist and an adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University died last fall at the age of 49 as the result of brain cancer. More than 60 local artists came together to put on the Monstrous Optimism show at Art Space (Zero East 4th Street – Hours Tues.-Sun., 12-4:00 PM) to benefit his family. The assembled artists created original images inspired by Kerry’s love of aliens, monsters, robots and super heroes. The images are being sold as 11” x 17” prints. That show is closing this Sunday so get down there to check out some amazing work, which can be seen on the event’s Facebook page.
An artists talk is scheduled for Sunday, September, 21st, 2:00 PM at Artspace. Santa DeHaven, Patrick Godfrey, and Kelly Alder, put the show up and will be hosting the talk which is usually hosted by the artist on the last Sunday of every show. It’s open to all of the members of Artspace as well as the general public.
