Article by Peter S. Scholtes
One of the more concentrated outpourings of creativity in town, this comic-book art opening doubles as a release party for an unusual item: a limited edition, beautifully designed box of miniature homemade comics from some 50 local artists titled Lutefisk Sushi, now in its fourth volume. The fun is that no one, artists included, knows quite what will be inside: Each contributes his or her (often hilarious, provocative, and moving) mini-comics and opens up the results with everyone else. Coordinators, including Big Time Attic and the International Cartoonist Conspiracy, present a reception at Altered Esthetics from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, August 6. The show continues in the gallery through August 26, with a panel discussion by participating artists on Saturday, August 21, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
