10/9: The Two Sides of Kocar at Art Gallery

Posted By on Wed, Oct 7, 2009 at 4:31 PM

Artist George Kocar’s most familiar works are plump-nosed caricatures of humanity — cartoons he uses in social commentary, satire and illustration. They’ve appeared in Playboy, GQ and dozens of other publications, packed with bright colors and visual noise. But Kocar also has a dark side, where the colors turn bleaker, the edges less sharp and the brush strokes more evident. It’s as if the flesh has come off all the fat figures in his cartoons, leaving behind just skulls and skeletons. Kocar shows off both bodies of work in The Two Sides of Kocar, which opens with a reception from 7-10 p.m. at the Art Gallery (4099 Erie St., Willoughby, 440.946.8001). It runs through November 6. Admission is free. — Michael Gill
