Head to the Art Gallery of Alberta for its first ever Comic and Zine Market! Featuring local artists and their amazing comics and zines, this market is taking place in the entrance of the AGA and is free to experience and shop. Come explore talented vendors, see their one-of-a-kind works and participate in mini art activities as well!
This market is organized in celebration of our current exhibition Comic Sans which celebrates Canadian artists inspired by comics. Our galleries will be open all day for you to experience and enjoy for the price of general admission. (The AGA is free for students and youth all year long.)
About Comic Sans: Comic Sans focuses on the limitless artistic side of Canadian comics and celebrates a broad range of approaches to storytelling. Some of the stories in Comic Sans are biographical or autobiographical, some are familiar and others have sprung from the imaginations of their creators. Comics don’t need to be constrained within the square frame of a comic panel and the work in this show expands well beyond it and even well beyond the page. Comic Sans is a celebration of the endlessly creative medium of graphic narratives.
Comic Sans is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Chris Reyns-Chikuma, University of Alberta and Lindsey Sharman, Art Gallery of Alberta.
