Comic Artists at the Opera

art by Maria Lorimer
A group exhibition featuring opera sketches by comic artists

About the artwork: In the main floor gallery of the Q.arma Building, a collection of works by Twin Cities comic artists will be on display throughout the month of April. The drawings, exhibiting a variety of styles and techniques, were made on location at The Ordway.


For the past three years the Black Hat Comics Collective has paired with the MN Opera Company and the Geek Partnership Society to give local comic book artists the opportunity to draw their personal interpretations of eleven different opera productions. The artists were invited to bring booklights, tablets, and their art materials to the final full dress rehearsals of each show, and given free reign with the results. The artwork produced reflects the extensive variety of both the Twin Cities comic book scene and the variety of the incredible shows produced by the opera company.
