One Universe of Light, Four Worlds of Color
Gualala Arts Center presents a new exhibit of works by Steve Oliff and friends in the Burnett Gallery. Opening reception Friday, February 2, 2018, 5 to 7 p.m. Exhibit through Wednesday, February 28, 2018.
Oliff describes the exhibit as part art and part science, utilizing a series of short presentations designed to help people think about color in new ways, and learn how to “See with Better Eyes.” The artist will lead a discussion and light demonstration during the reception and also every Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. (except Superbowl Sunday) through the close of the exhibit Wednesday, February 28.
In 1988, Oliff pioneered the evolution of flat comic book color into the digital era by using computers for color separation, revolutionizing the comic book industry. He is known internationally as the “Godfather” of modern comic coloring from his work on graphic novels like Akira, Sandman, Spawn, Batman, X-Men, and hundreds more.
Locally, Oliff is best known for 13 years of his comic strip, Armature, in the ICO, and the history book he co-authored with Cheri Carlstedt, “The Early Days of Point Arena.”
Oliff’s most recent book is “Guide Dog for the Coastally Curious”, a collection of his ICO comics that gives both locals and visitors a taste of our coast.
There will be books, prints, paintings, Aramature original art, comics, oddities and other original art by Oliff for sale.
