Art Exhibitions

You are cordially invited to “The Further (Queer) Adventures of Yukon Cornelius,” a solo art show by artist
Jerome Stueart, reimagining the boisterous red-bearded prospector from the 1964 Christmas special, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” as a gay man whose whole life is helping monsters, “Hiddens,” adapt to the world of people around them. This exhibit of giant-sized acrylic paintings and smaller watercolor paintings examines queer life and issues through the lens of monsters and heroes. Stueart, a World Fantasy Award nominee in Short Fiction, has written stories to go with some of the paintings which you can read through QR codes on the paintings or hear in a reading Sunday afternoon as part of an artist’s talk. Yukon Cornelius was created by Romeo Muller and is in the public domain. A special wall will celebrate Muller, a gay Jewish writer who penned many well-known, well-beloved movies. Event is FREE and open to the public. Light refreshments served.
