"Gag Me With a Toon 5" art exhibition to open in Culver City
Back in March 2012, Flayrah had a post about the “Gag Me With a Toon 4” art exhibition at the WWA art gallery in Culver City, California.
Now the WWA gallery has “Gag Me With a Toon 5” coming up, on May 4–June 1, 2013. Over fifty artists will be represented with their tributes to the cartoon stars of their youths.
Past paintings have included Scooby-Doo with a gun to his head, Smurf orgies, Mickey Mouse defying the universe, Garfield and Odie on an Indiana Jonesish rollercoaster, Chip ‘n Dale as two realistic chipmunks in a Rescue Rangers situation, and more.
As always, the anthropomorphic animals will be outnumbered by the human cartoon pop-cultural stars like Superman, the Flintstones, G.I. Joe, Wonder Woman, Jem, etc., but there will be enough cartoon animals to satisfy Flayrah’s readers.
“Gag Me With a Toon 5” kicks off with a gala reception from 7:00-10:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 4. This year’s poster features Cheetara from one of last year’s paintings. The first 100 attendees will receive a limited edition print. The WWA (Wonderful World of Animation) gallery is at 9517 Culver Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90232, open 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Tue-Sat., in the heart of the Culver City Art District.

This advance announcement does not have the gallery’s weblink to the entire exhibition that last year’s had, so that people can see all the paintings and buy them online. That will probably come soon. Meanwhile, the page linked above lists the featured artists.
