International Captain Picard Day Community Art Show

Wall of Picard at Destiny City Comics

Inspired by International Captain Picard Day Art shows featured in other cities, Jennevieve Schlemmer brought the idea of the CLAW and Destiny City Comics sponsoring such a show to the Council of Four-Eyes. The membership loved the idea and by unanimous finger pointing appoint Talon #21 aka: Jennevieve Schlemmer to the task of curator and head honcho in charge. Its through was only through her many hours of hard work that the Captain Picard Day Art Show and Festival became a reality.

The amount of art submitted was inspiring, as was the artwork itself. Early submissions revealed via social media encouraged other artists to create submissions. A buzz was being felt by everyone involved. When the evening of June 16th rolled around Destiny City Comics found its aisles filled with Captain Picard admirers. Many prizes were given out and we wish a prize could go to everyone in the show. A special thanks to judges Amy McBride (Tacoma City Arts Administrator) and Dan Long (Grand Cinema House Manager). They certainly had their task cut out for them. As did everybody who voted for the People’s Choice award. It really was a tough choice selecting a favorite. Additional thanks to the folks who participated in the costume competition.

The Captain Picard Day Art Show and Festival will remain up on the walls of Destiny City Comic through the month of June. Please stop by the store and take a close look at the display in person. You can pick up a newly minted-and free-Star Trek Activity themed Zine produced by the CLAW. There is also a table where you can find art and publications of the participating artists on sale. And of course most of the art is for sale as well.
