GAG ME WITH A TOON - GROUP SHOW
[03-6-08]

Amongst artists born in a certain period of time there is an affinity for the animated iconography of the 1980s. In April Meltdown Gallery presents GAG ME WITH A TOON, a new works exhibition that will showcase the work of more than twenty creative souls who have been tainted with the neon fruit stripe of Morning in America. Utilizing everything from the saccharine funk of Strawberry Shortcake to the disciplined fashion fervor of the Baroness of Cobra these artists will explore the sketchy in-betweens of animated femininity. In the gallery we shall weigh the sins of Scrappy-Doo and balance them against the irreligious inclusion of Godzuki, Baby Plas and 7-Zark-7. A measure will be made of thunderous barbarians and thunderous cats and of friends both super and amazing. Be ye short and blue or bionic, a real he-man or just your average joe, you will find yourself transformed after having stood amongst the time-displaced art of these stellar talents.
