"The Gallery Of Regrettable Superheroes" Book Release Party + Closing Reception For Amelia Sherritt says
Urban Light Studios presents:
The Gallery of Regrettable Superheroes

For every superhero hitting the big time with a blockbuster movie, there are countless failures, would-bes, almost-weres, also-rans, nobodies, weirdos, D-Listers, Z-listers and straight-up wackadoos in colorful spandex union suits.

While the rest of the world is cheering on the Avengers and the Justice League, join a local author and several local artists in championing the superheroes whom no one remembers any more.

Debuting June 2nd, 2015 from Quirk Books and written by Seattle-area cartoonist and author Jon Morris, The League of Regrettable Superheroes affectionately celebrates the lesser-known costumed crimefighters spanning seventy-five years of comic book history. Featuring 100 of the strangest superheroes ever to see print—from Captain Tootsie to Thunderbunny—The League of Regrettable Superheroes comes complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary.

To celebrate the June release of The League of Regrettable Superheroes, Urban Light Studios is hosting a book release party and gallery show during the monthly Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk.

Please join Urban Light Studios on Friday, June 12, from 6pm to 10pm for a gallery show of original art and prints for sale by The League of Regrettable Superheroes author Jon Morris, plus Tom Dougherty, Scott Faulkner, Justin Ison, Kim Kirsch, Gloria Reynolds, Dan Schlitzkus, and Adam Watson. Copies of The League of Regrettable Superheroes will also be on sale.

Jon Morris is a cartoonist and graphic designer whose long-running blog on lesser-known superheroes, Gone&Forgotten once earned him an interview on This American Life, and can be found at:

Closing Recpetion: AMELIA SHERRITT

Amelia Sherritt has been rooted in the Seattle area for her entire life. She finds inspiration in her city, as well as the surrounding beauty of Washington State. Amelia began working with recycled art in 2007, her palette solely comprised of foils from emptied wine bottles. Each piece of art contains hundreds if not thousands of recycled wine foils.

"I love to think of how each foil represents a memory or experience shared. By re-purposing these foils, I am able to make what would normally be thrown away into something long lasting and beautiful."
