We are thrilled to welcome artist, bookmaker, and dear friend, Julia Gualtieri as guest curator for the entire month of June!
Hello! My name is Julia, I am an artist, printer, and educator in Providence, RI. The Tiny Showcase philosophy of affordable art really jives with me and I am psyched to step in as guest curator for the month. I have been involved with many youth arts programs over the years and met some incredible young artists. I've wrangled a few of my favorites to share with you!
June 12th: Marcel Mensah Showcase!
Julia: "I have been a fan of Marcel's work since he was in middle school and making comics with the Providence Comics Consortium. Seven years later, he is still drawing and expanding into skateboard clothing and videos. For Tiny Showcase, Marcel unleashes sixteen characters into a colorful grid. Is it a yearbook page of misfits or an interspecies Brady Bunch? It's fun imagining the connections and relationships between all of these creatures!"
