HAMMOND, Ind. (July 7, 2019) – “Cultural Jet Lag,” an exhibit featuring the works of Jim Siergey and John Anthony Giemzik III, two players in the underground art scene for over two decades, will have a Grand Finale Event at Paul Henry’s Art Gallery in Hammond on Sunday, July 14, from 1:00–4:00pm. The event will feature an Artists’ Talk and is a last chance to view the works of Siergey and Giemzik as well as purchase pieces of art-related merchandise.
The first Cultural Jet Lag comic strip appeared in New City, a Chicago weekly newspaper, in 1990, and went on to appear in over 150 alternative publications across the country. A separate Cultural Jet Lag was created for Time Magazine, where it ran as a regular feature for 4 ½ years. Another composition of Cultural Jet Lag appeared in the Sunday magazine supplement of USA Weekend. Two comic book compilations followed.
New City’s Aaron Cohen wrote, “Cultural Jet Lag goes beyond strictly comic art, stretching into the realms of philosophy and politics to force highbrows and lowbrows to swim in the same pool.”
Paul Henry’s Art Gallery is located at 416 Sibley Street in downtown Hammond, IN 46320. Free parking is available in the lot directly behind the gallery between Sibley and Fayette streets. For more information about the gallery, call David Mueller at 219.678-5015.
