EDWARDSVILLE — Stache, a comic book creator group based in Edwardsville, has announced Stache Bash, a fine art exhibition at the Art Park OST gallery.
The opening reception will take place Friday, July 18, at the Art Park OST gallery in Granite City from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. An after-party will immediately follow at River’s Edge Bar and Grill in Granite City.
Stache brings together independent writers and artists to collaborate on works of sequential art. Published works include “7 Deadly Sins,” a comic anthology, and “Aporkalypse,” a weekly comic strip.
The gallery show will feature original artwork by Stache creators including: Shane Fulgham, Alice Harvey, Ryan Lawson, D’Anthony Mathenia, Lauren Ousley, Drew Rose, and Jordan Williams.
All artwork and a selection of comic books by the creators will be for sale. A silent auction will feature smaller works by the artists. The gallery show is a free all-ages event.
“We are hopeful that this event will provide an opportunity for people to see what Stache has been working on and to also learn more about the process of making a comic book,“ says Jordan Williams, exhibitor and creator of the comic book “The Gunpowder Witch.”
