In “Cryptozoology: A Pragmatist’s Guide,” Reid Psaltis has illustrated twelve monsters, cryptids chosen for having entertaining and thought-provoking circumstances and origins. Most discussions on cryptozoology start and end with personal beliefs, but one needn’t take sides to still enjoy the evidence for its own sake. The book’s original artwork will be on display and copies will be available for purchase through January.
The opening reception is First Thursday, January 6th. Sequential Art will be open for regular gallery hours Thursdays (3pm-7pm) and Saturdays (11am-5pm) or by appointment. This show is beautifully imaginative and children are welcome!
Despite growing up in the Pacific Northwest Reid Psaltis has never been on a Bigfoot seeking expedition. Nor has he seriously pursued any such monsters, other than doing research for this book. He received a BA in painting from Western Washington University, and through his drawings he is trying his best to bridge what he sees as an ever-widening rift between science and art. His comics, paintings, and illustrations can be seen on his website, www.reidpsaltis.com.
