Tom Everhart

Doghouse Trunk Show: The Art of Tom Everhart

September 21st, 2013, 1-4pm

Liss Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition by guest artist Tom Everhart entitled, Doghouse Trunk Show: The Art of Tom Everhart

The explosive, dazzling color, expressionistic imagination, and big-as-life proportions are Tom Everhart’s signature elements…his artwork is the culmination of 20 years

of close association with cartoonist Charles M. Schulz and the ®Peanuts phenomenon.

The only fine artist authorized to artistically render the ®Peanuts characters, Everhart had been a successful painter of large-scale landscapes

before being asked to render drawings of the ®Peanuts characters for a commercial project in 1980. In 1988, Everhart had the vision of taking the lovable ®Peanuts

gang to a new level of art ‹ what one commentator would later dub “Expresstoonism.” Ironically, Everhart was in the hospital with life-threatening cancer when the inspiration struck. But today, with his illness

in remission, the 47-year-old California artist is pursuing his vision of the ®Peanuts paintings with an energy as irrepressible as his imagery. Everhart’s paintings have been exhibited at museums

all over the world, including the Louvre in Paris. His exhibition schedule for 2000 included the Museu da Cidade in Lisbon, Portugal, and the Suntory Museum in Osaka, Japan. Additionally, CBS television

selected nine of Everhart¹s paintings to be highlighted in a special on Charles Schulz hosted by Whoopi Goldberg.

Limited-edition fine-art lithographs based on Everhart’s ®Peanuts paintings are distributed exclusively by Everhart’s fine art publisher under an agreement

with United Media (licensor of the rights to both Schulz’s comic strip characters and the Everhart lithographs). Capturing the full impact and vitality of Everhart¹s self-described “frenzied”

color and line is the job of the publisher’s atelier. The publisher’s artisans, using paintings on paper and canvas by Everhart as a starting point, work directly with Everhart to painstakingly

create these fine artworks with traditional hands-on, hand-pulled lithography techniques.

Please join us in celebrating the exhibition opening on Saturday, September 21st from 1-4 PM. Please RSVP to info
