KaPow Comics & Coffee Spotlight Gallery
We are changing up our Local Artist Showcase this year. We will be partnering with one artist at a time and will hang their original artwork in our shop for a period of about 4 weeks. Some original pieces will be available for sale and prints will be available for purchase throughout the gallery show. For more info on this change, see our blog “Refocus on Local Art”
The Art of Matt Hunter
We are pleased to announce our second Spotlight Gallery artist is Matt Hunter.
Matt Hunter was born at Langley AFB in Virginia and now resides in Colorado Springs. Among several degrees, Matt has a Bachelors in Graphic Design from the University of Miami/MDCC.
An avid collector of comic art and books, Matt enjoys creating artwork that blends realism, perspective, and design themes. Matt has done hundreds of original commissions on comics, art-board, or canvas, and absolutely loves stipling in pen and ink (shading with meticulous dot designs). Matt has been creating digital art in Photoshop and Illustrator for a decade and has taught digital art classes at Peterson AFB, Fort Carson, and most recently at KaPow!
- Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, March 16th 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
- Matt’s art will be on display at KaPow thru April 20th. Original artwork and prints will be available for purchase at KaPow thru this time.
Wednesday, March 20th 6:00 – 8:00 PM will be our last regular trivia night. The topic is Women of Marvel and will be the last day of our awesome trivia master, Caleb. You won’t want to miss it!
