Lynda Barry Cartoon Art

Famed cartoonist Lynda Barry is currently showing her work from past 35 years at Adam Baumgold Gallery in the exhibition: Lynda Barry, Everything: Part I. The exhibition includes work from her seminal books as well as works that were published in Raw, The Village Voice, Esquire, Newsweek and The New York Times, among others.

Central to all her many bodies of work is Barry’s energetic line and her boisterous sense of humor. In some of her earliest works, for example, a cactus tries to seduce a woman saying, “Lola, can we be sure of anything in this crazy world? All I know are your eyes tonight and this wild beating of my heart.” For Barry, drawing and storytelling are integrated activities.
