Reston, VA: ArtInsights Animation and Film Art Gallery is hosting an exhibit of limited edition and original comic book and animation art featuring Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, the characters soon to be the central focus of Zack Snyder’s new movie “Batman V Superman” premiering March 25th. Other popular DC Comics superheroes and villains will also be for sale and on display. The show runs from March 2 through April 4 at ArtInsights, 11921 Freedom Drive, Reston, Virginia 20190, in Reston Town Center.
The images on exhibit will encompass the work of a variety of well-known figures in the comics and cartoon world, including limited editions by Jim Lee, renowned artist and co-Publisher of DC Entertainment, and production art from Bruce Timm’s Batman and Superman animated series. Says Leslie Combemale, co-owner of ArtInsights, “I love that the world of movies is catching up to what comic book fans have known for years. Comic book art is real art, and so is production art from the superhero cartoons. It’s made by the artists who celebrate these characters and keep them at the forefront of pop culture. No one represents that more than Jim Lee, and we’re proud to have his art, and the art of these icons gracing our walls.” Continues Combemale, “It’s so much fun, seeing kids and cosplayers dressed as their favorite hero or villain, coming in. They often leave with art, but always with smiles on their faces!”
