Steve Richter at Union Arts

Union Arts, a literally underground art gallery and performance space, will be showcasing the work of Steve Richter in a show named "Steveophobia," starting today, May 14th, with an opening from 7 to 9 with light refreshments.

We've already talked at length about Richter (http://rathacon.blogspot.com/2012/04/steve-richter.html), but for those who don't recognize his name, you may recognize his work in his latest books Atomic Yardsale and Existential Fish.

"Steveophobia" is a collection of cartoons and illustrations based on Richter's ongoing theme of fears, phobias, and anxieties. This collection also includes scenes from his latest books, a few characters from his Seattle years, and sketches from his sketch books.

If you want to catch a look at Richter's work before Ratha Con, visit Union Arts at 15 W Union St, to the left of Haffa's Records and down the stairs.
