An exhibit of original art by one of The New Yorker‘s Cartoon Gods, Edward Koren, will open Saturday March 18 at Vermont’s Brattleboro Museum & Art Center. BMAC’S Website here.
From the press release:
Quirky creatures will…inhabit the exhibit SERIOUSLY FUNNY in the museum’s East Gallery. The exhibit consists of 16 original drawings and prints by longtime New Yorker cartoonist Ed Koren, best known for his iconic, fuzzy-haired, long-nosed denizens of New York’s Upper West Side. Koren and curator Jeff Danziger will give a talk at BMAC on Thursday, April 20 at 7 p.m.
Here’s Mr. Koren’s entry on Ink Spill‘s “New Yorker Cartoonists A-Z”:
Edward Koren (photo above,Fall 2016,courtesy of Gil Roth) Born, 1935. New Yorker work: May 26, 1962 — . Key collections: Do You Want To Talk About It? (Pantheon,1976), Well, There’s Your Problem (Pantheon, 1980), Caution: Small Ensembles (Pantheon,1983).
The mysterious “Max” and “Simon” have returned (along with the equally mysterious Mystery Guest New Yorker Cartoonist) to assess the latest New Yorker cartoons. This week: Krimstein’s coffee, Bliss’s spooky campfire story, Borchart’s bees, and more.
The Gray Lady sends off Bob Mankoff with a piece on his own cartoons (Emma Allen replaces Mr. Mankoff as the New Yorker‘s cartoon editor this Spring).
Mr. Mankoff tells Ink Spill that one of his post-editorship projects, The Encyclopedia Of New Yorker Cartoons, will contain, in his words, “a massive 4,000 cartoons” — look for it in 2018.
