Here's a few pictures from the opening night. The place was packed! We met a lot of great local artists and gallerists and just plain, good old folk! It was fun. The Argentinian wine and the food was also superb.

Impera et Divide is a show at Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville VA, USA focusing on contemporary international comics and sequential art with a highlight on a group of artists who come at comics from a different angle - combining sequences of images and words to create graphic poems rather than graphic novels. Relying on destabilizing and decentering strategies, this work offers rich, multivalent, and at times baffling reading experiences.
