Senior Program: Artist Reception

Tuesday, June 7, 2022

Beginning in June and running through July, Jim Wise, aka “Artoon Jim,” returns to exhibit what he calls the next generation of his gag “artoons.” There will be a reception to celebrate the exhibit. In 2019 Jim and his illustrator, Larry Wideman, exhibited a collection of 8½ x 11-inch single panel gag cartoons. That exhibit proved quite a success. This upcoming exhibit will introduce what Jim believes is a totally new contribution to the world of contemporary pop art. These artoons are massively enlarged, framed and colorized prints. Most are approximately four feet tall. These artoons were produced with the able assistance of local professional illustrator, Ola Betiku. Ola replaced Larry who, unfortunately, could no longer continue assisting Jim due to health reasons. A portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of Larry. Be sure to check out the exhibit and be prepared to laugh.
