Spirit of ’77: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Austin Books

Spirit of '77

Guzu Gallery Presents

Spirit of ’77: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Austin Books

Opening Reception: Friday, September 1, 7 PM – 10 PM

September 1, 2017 – October 10, 2017

Austin Books & Comics, Guzu Gallery’s favorite comic shop (and also their parent company and friendly next-door neighbors), has good reason to celebrate in 2017 — forty remarkable reasons to be exact. Central Texas’ largest and longest-running comics and pop culture retailer opened its doors in 1977, so this year they are celebrating their 40 year anniversary!

To mark the occasion, there will be a series of sales and events, including a pop culture art show event at Guzu Gallery — lasting the full forty days of Austin Books’ big 40 Day Sale.

Taking Austin Books’ birth year, 1977, as their inspiration, twenty-three talented artists will help pay tribute to the legendary comic book store via limited edition prints and original artwork. The opening reception will be on Friday, September 1st from 7 to 10pm and the artwork will remain up through October 10th. All artwork will be available for purchase. As always, admission is free and all ages are welcome!

Guzu Gallery welcomes everyone to the show, but if you can’t make it out, the artwork will be available for purchase in their online store on Wednesday, September 6th around Noon CST.

Vulgaris Mortem: A Sofubi Art Toy Exhibition

Vulgaris Mortem
This December, Violence Toy and Krotpong Industries will team up with Guzu Gallery to bring you a one day day only event featuring soft vinyl art toys!

The event will take place on Saturday, December 3rd, following the Friday night opening of Strange Beasts IV – the fourth installment of Guzu’s highly successful kaiju & Japanese pop culture themed group art show. The team has assembled an exceptional cast of talented toy makers for this exhibition…and cannot wait to reveal their many outstanding works of art!

Black plague, funerals, winter, death…these are the themes of Vulgaris Mortem. Each artist was asked to follow a pair of plague doctors on their dark journey to inspiration. Where they chose to go from there was entirely up to them.

This will be a one-day-only event, where those attending can take their purchases home at the end of the evening, or in-person at their convenience at a later date. Following the show, each piece that is still available will go on sale online for a limited time.

Sales will start as soon as the doors open and will be followed by a live musical set from surf rock kings and kaiju enthusiasts, The Del-Vipers. Admission is free and all ages are welcome.

Stay tuned to Guzu Gallery’s Facebook & Twitter for more info and sneak previews as the days get closer to show time!
