Bubble Rap II: art inspired by comix, tattoos, games, novel & magazine covers; now showing at LSUS Gallery and Centenary's Magale Library

Hanging the Bubble Rap II show: Michael G and Chris

Art zooming out of comic books, tattoos, role-playing games, horror movies, pulp novels and magazine covers and other pop culture artifacts will be on display at 2 different locations -- the LSUS University Center Gallery and in the lobby gallery of Centenary College's Magale Library. Both locations will display different work, says Michael G. Moore.

Inspired by the dialogue and thought bubbles common to comics, the title of the show refers to the ongoing visual dialogue between curator Moore and the 21 Shreveport-area artists represented. The artists:

Chris Alexander
Vivian Ogea Allen
Matt Beckham
Mark Burt
Brad Campbell
Eric Dean
Debbie Buchanan Engle
Rachel Stuart Haas
Billy Hargrove
Micah Harold
Kenny Keil
Chuck Loridans
Jody Raney
Lisa Smith
Leland Strebeck
Donna Strebeck
Robert Trudeau
Jen Wasson
Danny J. Williams
David Wright
Sizer Yerger

The two locations will have separate opening receptions:
Thurs, Oct 5 from 6-8 p.m. at Centenary
Thurs, Oct 12 from 6-8 p.m. at LSUS.

An essay by writer Michael Parker focusing on the significance of these often-dismissed genres, both historically and as expressed by local artists, will be published at the exhibit.
