Comic Art: A Master Craft

3 June @ 10:30 am - 4 June @ 4:00 pm


This June, prepare to be amazed as four grand masters of comic art come together for an exciting exhibition of work at Shrewsbury’s new MRS JONES Art Shop & Gallery in Belle Vue.

Comic Art: A Master Craft runs from Saturday 3rd June to 1st July and will feature the work of internationally renowned comic illustrators Charlie Adlard, Christian Ward, Dan Berry and Mike Perkins, the artists behind some our best loved superheroes and villains including The Walking Dead, Superman, Captain America, Thor and the X-Men.

The idea for an exhibition came about as a way to participate in the Belle Vue Arts Festival. It’s a special event this year, celebrating twenty years since local hero Judy Townsend first brought a festival of art to her local community, so we wanted something really fitting to tie in with this year’s theme of ‘heroes’. It was world renowned comic veteran Charlie Adlard who came up this awe-inspiring line up of comic artists for a joint exhibition.

As an exclusive, Charlie will be revealing previously unseen work from a book by Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman, as well as a splash of original artwork from Altamont depicting guitar hero Eric Clapton in a cameo with one of its main characters.

Whether you’re new to comics, or a die-hard fan, this is unique chance to discover the talent behind some of the world’s most iconic comic characters. Discover some epic cover prints and pages that you may never seen before. Including ‘Bones’, a sketch book by Dan Berry about the surprising discovery of old bones in a Shrewsbury church! A world-class exhibition awaits – so don’t miss it!
