Palookaville at PAMA: Out and About with the Quill

This Sunday, February 19th marked the opening reception for an exhibition entitled “Heading to Palooka-Ville: Seth and the Art of the Graphic Novel” at the Peel Art Gallery Museum + Archives in Brampton. The event also served as an opportunity to promote our own recently-published book on Seth’s work, Palookaville: Seth and the Art of Graphic Autobiography by Tom Smart. The artist himself was in attendance, along with author Tom Smart, who is also the art gallery curator at PAMA. Both were kind enough to sign a few books for the attendees.

Check out some cool photos of the event below. All images are by Custodio’s Photography Studio Inc. and come to us courtesy of PAMA.

OK, isn’t that just the coolest photo background ever? What a fantastic display put on by the fine folks at PAMA.

Many thanks to all who attended–we hope you enjoy your copies of Palookaville!
