Cartoons have a long and storied history as artistic devices to make a political point, make a social commentary or critique, or simply to poke fun at a person in particular, or society in general.
For this exhibit, Carlos & Dominguez Fine Arts Gallery asked Eric J. Garcia, who has developed into one of Chicago's noted political cartoonist, to curate a show featuring cartoons that were in the finest traditions of what I will call, "Cartoons with a Conscience."
This exhibit is presented as our gallery's entry into this year's 18th Street Pilsen Open Studios weekend event.
The artist exhibiting in this unique exhibit will be:
Eric J. García
Of course, there will be food and refreshments during this weekend event.

"Las Artelitas would like to present a group exhibition for Villarte 2015, as a continuation of our quest to provide a safe and nurturing space for dialogue and community storytelling in Little Village."
"A vibrant, small press culture exists in St. Louis. Small collectives of comic book artists are printing anthologies. Literary magazines are cultural institutions. Zinesters are challenging our political landscape and gender norms. Contemporary artists are discovering zines as a medium. Booklovers are investing their personal money into publishing fiction - not by themselves, but by other writers who they admire and adore.
The St. Louis Small Press Expo (SPEx) celebrates all these publishers (and more) by connecting them together, and to the public. It hosts a yearly–daring, sparkly, diverse, badass, free-entry–DIY bookfair"
