Short Run and Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery present: BLAZERS NOV 14 – DEC 09
BLAZERS displays the work of 12 artists selected to attend our 6th annual Trailer Blaze Comics Residency, scheduled for last April but postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19. These women and non-binary artists represent Short Run’s commitment to alternative comic storytelling born of experimentation rather than complicity with rules and tradition.
Artists: Veronika Muchitsch (UK), Melanie Stevens (OR), Sophia Zarders (CA), Krusty Wheatfield (CA), Janna Morton (MD), Lydia Fu (IL), Katie Fricas (NY), Rachel Scheer (Seattle), E.T. Russian (Seattle), Lee Bess (Seattle), Lauren Armstrong (Seattle), Megan Kelso (Seattle).
Trailer Blaze is a week-long comics residency at The Sou’wester Lodge and Vintage Trailer Park in Seaview, WA. The annual residency offers invaluable time and space for emerging and established women artists to do their work without interruption by an increasingly distracting world. Trailer Blaze is also an environment for work to get better—allowing time for contemplation, exploration of the natural world, and fostering connections within the community so we can share ideas, resources, and form lasting bonds.
Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is open with safety precautions (masks and distancing observed) Mon-Sat 11:30-8 pm and Sun till 5 pm. Facebook event here.
