  •  Cartoons!




October 4 - 29, 2000

And now for something completely different: a collection of well-tempered cartoon artists from the Grey-Bruce area.

With a few deft pen strokes and a pithy comment, a cartoon cuts through complacency, pretense, mediocrity and confusion to the very crux of the matter. If this is brain surgery, it doesn't hurt a bit. The mind is cleared. We laugh. And we feel better afterwards.

Cartoonists participating in this show are Patrick Callaghan, Dave Devlin, Rachel Oliver, Mark Thurman, Jeff Wilson, Wilf VanDyk and Tracy Zettler. Molly Keily and Chris Fournier have recently moved away from this region: they are included here for old time's sake.
