Tom Everhart – Wednesday, Oct. 18th, 12 pm, Room 9, Art Dept.
(From the November 13-19, 2003 issue of the North Bay Bohemian)
Everhart, speaking from his Venice, Calif., studio, says he's the first fine artist to align himself with a cartoonist to create a body of work springing from a place of personal feeling and conscious connection. Everhart, whose show "Under the Influence" opens at the Charles M. Schulz Museum on Nov. 15, actually never thought of Schulz as a cartoonist "so much as an artist of cartoon, with the sensibilities of a fine artist."
