Comics: Major Frank Quitely Exhibition at Kelvingrove

Published On March 13, 2017 | By Joe Gordon | Comics, Competitions, Conventions and events, News

Delighted to hear that the splendid Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow (an institution for generations in the city) is hosting a major exhibition of comics artwork by Frank Quitely this spring. From the description: “Frank Quitely: The Art of Comics brings all your favourite superheroes together in a fantastic exhibition. You can MARVEL at the displays, SWOOP into your own superhero costume or be AMAZED at the artworks you discover!

The exhibition at Kelvingrove showcases the largest ever collection of work by renowned comic artist Frank Quitely. You can get up close and personal with the painstaking detail in every iconic frame. There will also be original artwork from titans of the comic book industry such as Mark Millar, Alan Grant, Grant Morrison, Chip Kidd, Neal Adams & Frank Miller as well as an original Batman comic strip by Batman creator Bob Kane. ”

The exhibition runs from April 1st to the 1st of October 2017 – we’ve teamed up with Glasgow Galleries & Museums and have a couple of tickets for the private viewing of the exhibition on the evening of April 1st, where you will be able to meet Frank Quitely himself and hear first-hand about his comic book work and the exhibition. To be in with a chance of winning tickets to this great evening, visit FP Glasgow’s Facebook page and like the post on the exhibition to enter your name into the draw.
