All Day Karl Stevens + Raul Gonzalez Two Artists and Their Books: The Lodger and Lowriders in Space

Karl Stevens  + Raul Gonzalez, Two Artists and Their Books: The Lodger and Lowriders in Space from December 4, 2014 to January 25, 2015. There will be a reception and Book signing Thursday, December 4, 2014 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

This exhibition focuses on each of the artist’s published books. They both straddle a range of influences – illustration, graffiti, comic books, as well as nods to the history of painting.  Stevens and Gonzalez will present original drawings and paintings from their respective books.  This is an exciting opportunity to peer behind the text, and experience the work of these two extraordinary Boston artists.

Karl Stevens’ book The Lodger is so carefully and convincingly drawn from life that it’s tempting to assume the whole thing is real. It is built around a year’s worth of the weekly comic strip “Failure” which he drew for the Boston Phoenix, having spent several years there as the official cartoonist. The strip’s title is both a characteristic bit of self-deprecation and a sequel to Stevens’ earlier work “Succe$$.” His award winning series consisted of realistic renditions of people and the creation of small, slice-of-life profiles filled with wit and profundity.

Raul Gonzalez’s first graphic novel is co-created with writer Cathy Camper; Lowriders in Space, is published by Chronicle Books and debuts in the fall of 2014. The three main characters, Lupe Impala, El Chavo Flapjack, and Elirio Malaria love working with cars. Their favorite cars of all are lowriders—cars that dip and drop, go low and slow, bajito y suavecito. Striking art from debut illustrator Raul the Third recalls ballpoint-pen-and-Sharpie desk-drawn doodles. With a glossary at the back to provide definitions for Spanish and science terms, this delightful book educates and entertains in equal measure.

The Angela Lombardo Memorial Scholarship benefits a senior/second year Radiation Therapy student who exemplifies the image of a Radiation Therapist in competence, proficiency, congeniality, empathy towards the patients, and the ability to work in a team environment. Our goal is to have a scholarship endowed in Angela’s name to honor her legacy: the contributions she made to the radiation therapy profession, especially in the educational domain, and the work of her students who are now practicing radiation therapists.

Ford Hall Forum presents: Warrior Princess

Featuring Kristin Beck (author, Warrior Princess: A U.S. Navy SEAL’s Journey to Coming Out Transgender) and moderated by Elif Armbruster (Associate Professor of English, Suffolk University)

As a 20-year veteran Navy SEAL, Christopher Beck was hailed as a hero, serving on thirteen deployments and ultimately earning a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. But Chris’s biggest battle was coming to terms with the fact that she was really a woman. Now known as Kristin, Beck opens up about her life in a field of masculinity while struggling to acknowledge and accept her true gender. Suffolk English Professor Elif Armbruster helps Beck present her true story, a profile of finding the courage to be herself.

Co-Presented by the CAS Dean’s Office, the Seminar for Freshmen Program, and the Ford Hall Forum
