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.
