Don’t miss the publication party for Inner City Romance this Saturday featuring sweet original art by Guy Colwell. The exhibition fittingly opens on Valentine’s Day from 6:00 to 9:00 PM and coincides with the 7th anniversary of the colorful Georgetown Art Attack.
Guy Colwell’s comic book serial Inner City Romance appeared in 1972, illustrating the unvarnished reality of an emerging urban counterculture. As Matt Gonzalez observes in Juxtapoz magazine, “Colwell’s art is motivated by two primary sentiments: first, a deep political strain meant to expose and offer commentary on political, economic, and racial disparities that exist in our society, and second, an awareness of man’s uncomfortable relationship with nature and sexuality.”
The exhibition of original pages, prints, paintings and drawings by this accomplished artist is one of many highlights of the Georgetown Art Attack. Spend a romantic evening in the enchanting industrial arts district of Georgetown. Visit Fran’s Chocolates new factory across the street from the bookstore, explore art studios and galleries, enjoy dinner and drinks at one of two dozen bars and restaurants, and encounter spontaneous spectacles all over the historic neighborhood.
