Get zapped back to the Saturday mornings of your youth this March as WWA gallery hosts the fourth annual Gag Me with a Toon exhibition curated by Steven Daily and Tomi Monstre. Action packed and full of fun, the event will feature over 70 contemporary talents paying homage to, or otherwise dementing the memory of, our beloved Saturday morning cartoons.
The creation of Steven Daily, Gag Me with a Toon began as a nod to the cartoons of the 80s that influenced his and many of his peers artistic styles. Now exceedingly popular, the show has moved to WWA gallery in order to accommodate all the artists eager to participate and its anxiously awaiting fans.
Along with the change in venue, Gag Me with a Toon has also broadened its scope to include shows from the 70s and 90s as well. So no matter when you plunked yourself drooling in front of the old tube there is sure to be a piece that will transport you back to simpler days.
Open to the public, the gallery reception for Gag Me with a Toon is from 7 – 11pm on Saturday, March 17th. The exhibition will run until April 21st, 2012.
