Sequential Art Gallery presents “Natalie Nourigat Presents”, a behind-the-scenes look at several projects by local artist and comics creator, Natalie “Tally” Nourigat. The exhibit opens this Thursday, May 2nd, with the artist’s reception from 6pm to 10pm.
Nourigat’s exhibition will focus on her process, including sketches, notes, and finished product. “Natalie Nourigat Presents” features artwork from several of Nourigat’s different projects: her diary comic series “Between Gears”; Image Comics’ “It Girl”, written by Jamie S. Rich; Jane Espenson’s “Husbands” from Dark Horse Comics; the comic adaptation of “The Thrilling Adventure Hour” series by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker; and “Meet Your Mind”, written by Jim Ottaviani, from To The Best Of Our Knowledge Presents. Nourigat also includes art not associated with an official project, but rather showcases her own interests as a fan of the comics medium.
Natalie “Tally” Nourigat is a member of Periscope Studio, the Northwest’s largest collective of comic book professionals. She has worked with many high-profile companies including Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, Lerner Publishing Group, Oni Press, BOOM! Studios, and Archaia Entertainment. She illustrated “My Boyfriend is a Monster: Wrapped Up in You”, which made Kirkus’s Best Teen Books of 2012 list. Nourigat is the creator of the self-published “Over the Surface”, and “Between Gears: Vol. 1” published by Image Comics in 2012.
“Natalie Nourigat Presents” will be on display throughout the month of May, with gallery hours on Thursdays from 3pm-7pm, Saturdays from 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibition will close at the end of business on Saturday, June 1st.
