An Evening with Matthew Diffee, Cartoonist for The New Yorker

Art Talk, Art Show, Drawings/Works on Paper, Museum, Installations, Mixed Media, Gallery, Painting
Hickory Museum of Art is pleased to welcome Matthew Diffee for an evening of laughs and art on Friday, March 2. The evening will feature a two-part ticketed event beginning with the exhibit reception with the artist in HMA’s 2nd floor Coe Gallery from 6 – 7:30 PM. A second ticketed opportunity to interact with the artist will take place in The SALT Block’s Drendel Auditorium at 7:30 PM where the artist will discuss his creative process and motivation. The evening will culminate in a book-signing where ticket-holders will be encouraged to return to the Coe Gallery to spend more time with this versatile exhibit installation. An Evening with Matthew Diffee is presented in conjunction with his exhibition ONE MAN GROUP SHOW: The Cartoons and Other Art of Matthew Diffee which opens officially on March 3 and runs through July 8. Matthew Diffee was a painter first, of landscapes and abstractions, but then he became a cartoonist for The New Yorker Magazine. He kept painting but no one ever saw that work until now (unless you came to his house for some reason and looked under the bed). In ONE MAN GROUP SHOW, Diffee shares his best cartoon art and the other art he’s been doing for the past twenty years. ONE MAN GROUP SHOW includes the original drawings for the cartoons and illustrations that have graced your coffee table and night stand. And for the first time, Diffee will exhibit his more traditional artistic endeavors: realist landscapes, abstract paintings, and collages.
