Photos from Seth's Opening

The AGO was home to huge crowd of comics cognoscenti, art patrons, rock stars, and people desparately seeking respite from the 33 degree heat of downtown Toronto on June 29th, 2005.

Despite the catalog notes about a "new comics underground" reacting to the "cooption of art," the Gallery still has to pay its bills. In the foreground, a framed example of the limited edition (of 200) silkscreen print of the exhibit poster.
