WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) Clientele Art Studio’s next exhibition will feature an often overlooked style of art, Splash Page, on Saturday, April 9 starting at 8 p.m. Admission is free.
Splash Page will focus on the art style seen in comics, cartoons, and illustrations.
A front page is a full single-page panel in a comic and is usually the first page of the story and includes the title and credits. Splash pages are used to capture the reader’s attention and set the mood of the comic.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for people to see comic book art in a new light and show off the deep talent we have in the region.” said local artist Joshua Bommer, a pop culture artist and illustrator who has worked with Topps Trading Cards on their Star Wars and The Walking Dead lines.
“Clientele’s main objective has always been to provide space for all our local artists. The Ohio Valley has
an amazing group of talented artists, but some art styles don’t have the same opportunities to
display like the others,” said Will Wallace, owner of Clientele Art Studio. “Splash Page has an incredible group of artists who contribute some truly awesome works. Even the event flyer, directed by Luke Novel, is amazing!”
The event will begin at 8 p.m. at Clientele Art Studio, located at 43 15th Street, Wheeling, WV and is free to enter.
