“From the Beginning: Jack Davis” Opening Reception


“From the Beginning: Jack Davis” looks at the expansive body of work from well-known cartoonist and illustrator Jack Davis. A Georgia man, Davis was born in Atlanta and studied art at UGA. Now, with 64 years of cartooning behind him—and the Georgia bulldog humorously imprinted into his mind and work—the exhibit provides a retrospective look at Davis’ career. The show’s 40 original pieces highlight his contributions to EC Comics, MAD Magazine, Time Magazine and TV Guide and demonstrate both wit and skill through his distinct, energetic style. Signed copies of the book Jack Davis: Drawing American Popular Culture will be available for purchase, and the exhibit will be on display through December 31. This event is free and lasts from 6:30–8:30 p.m.
