Call for Art for Muppet Gallery

The new Muppet Movie is being released this November. Join us in a celebration of all that is Jim Henson and his Muppet creations. The November theme for the Rouges Gallery will be the Muppets and we are calling for all local artists to submit a piece of original art. On Saturday afternoons starting at 1pm we will play old Muppet movies and the old TV series. On December 3, we will host and open house where fans of the work can come meet the artists behind the creations and have an opportunity to purchase the work. With this being a Muppet gallery, please don’t limit your submissions to simply paper work, feel free to even create your own puppet. All pieces should be submitted by November 4, 2011 for display beginning November 5 with the first movie being played on the 5th.

Free Comic Book Day Review

It was awesome. More details later, but overall, really was an awesome time. Thank you all for coming out, telling your friends and helping make this a success.

It was a wonderful afternoon of fun and free comics. Kids played games and with snakes and bounced in the jump house and many of you visited the artist alley to check out the local small press work. Billy West and Nicholas Brendon were both on hand to sign autographs and photos. The bands were amazing and entertained all who stayed late. And in the end we were honored to raise of $2000 for Josh Medors through the Help for Heroes Benefit. Thank you all who showed up and continue to support free comic book day, Packrat Comics and the original American art form of Comic Books! See you all next year!
