Greatest Hits @ Wonder Fair


This Halloween season, Wonder Fair presents the work of six area artists/illustrators/zine-/mischief-makers. In our gallery, peruse “Greatest Hits” from the portfolios of Alex Schubert, Kenneth Kupfer, and John Malta. Whether drawn for the glossy pages of their own alternative comics (like Schubert's well-known "Blobby Boys") or designed for the revered New York Times (John Malta is a frequent contributor to their art section), these artists' recent artwork illustrates the shared history of kids raised in the ‘80s and early ‘90s on a steady diet of mainstream video games and underground comics.

Beyond the gallery, guests will once again be allowed to range into the hidden spaces of Wonder Fair, as our back room is remodeled into a haunted art Installation. Visitors to last year’s Cemetery Cinema may remember Dustin Williams’ pun-filled video store, staffed by a surly ghost, lined with fictional VHS tapes, and entombed in cobwebs. This year, Williams--along with fellow artists Cameron Lamontagne and Jon Linn--will expand their ghostly real estate to open the Dead End Diner. Be sure to visit on our Final Friday grand opening event to pick up your frequent Die-ner card, valid through 10/31/13. Then, stay tuned for details to emerge about our one-night-only Dead End Diner Murder Mystery dinner party, Halloween night. Get Spooky!
