Telegraph is worlds away from the highbrow spaces often associated with the term "art gallery." This Charlottesville spot is all about comic book artwork, and to that end, its gallery space plays host to the high quality screenprints that local artists create.
Up-and-coming names in any type of modern or popular sphere of art are showcased at Telegraph in its rotating exhibits. Though they change frequently, you might catch a show like "Epic Encounters." This past show displayed comic book heroes and villains as printed by emerging artists such as Jenn Woodall, Jim Rugg, and Jake Lawrence.
Every print you see is up for grabs, as are the prints in Telegraph's retail section. Though many of them are reminiscent of the rare and popular comics that Telegraph's staff also curates and sells, the prints show off colorful renditions of more than just super heroes. For instance, one screenprint shows off a spaceship outlined like a blueprint, except for one catch: it's shaped like a dog.
Head to Telegraph to explore up-and-coming modern artists and find your favorite comic—or a new favorite—Tuesdays through Sundays (they're closed on Mondays).
