Event description: Graphic novels such as Kick Ass have recently infiltrated the main stream through their translationonto screen. Market Gallery presents graphic artists contributing to this creative boom, juxtaposingthem with contemporary fine artists who also use storytelling and narrative to construct their own unique worlds.

Scotland is world renowned for its story telling. This exhibition aims to celebrate this legacy whilst examining the relationship between illustration, film and fine art and encourage discussion about how these seemingly autonomous media share common themes and motivations.

The opening is Friday 11th February 6pm-9pm. And the Exhibition will run until March 6th. For more information see www.marketgallery.org.uk
