Just happened to drop in this last 1st Friday round of art openings in the 'Banks to the annual Up With Art Exhibition in the Bear Gallery. What an awesome surprise to see an eight-page spread of sequential art on the wall: "Fantasticality" by Maria Frantz. She was in last year's 24 Hour Comics event and has a great webcomic too: Blue Street.
Kudos to the jurors (Jeanne Mars Armstrong + Annie Duffy) for recognizing and awarding such fine art, and a big congrats to Maria for the spectacular spotlight! Check out both her website and the show while it's up for the rest of April.

Also this past week up at the UAF Fine Art gallery was the BFA Thesis show "Well, This Is Awkward" by Courtney Huston... featuring an obvious favorite "Rose's Beaver (Paint Me Like One Of Your French Girls)."
