The Characternity

The Characternity and other Funny Pictures by Ray Sumser – a month long installation of this Bay Area Native’s iconic work in paint, drawing, print, digital and more. See the mind-boggling 9′ oil painting of 1,500 recognizable pop culture characters, the 12′ Nude Starbucks Interior vista, the final throw down between Super-Man and God, kaleidoscopic psycho-spiritual mind maps and more. Come to events through June including a BYOT T-Shirt making party, Ukulele night, Free Comic Book Day, Collaborative Painting and a Print Release Party. Proudly presented at Treehouse Gallery, Dogpatch SF’s landmark gallery destination.

Raymond J Sumser grew up in Marin, graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design (07′ PAINT/FILM) and was a founding member of the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz. His work has been show around California, and his prints hang in 17 countries. The artist recently completed a successful Kickstarter Campaign to fund his newest creation, the Cartoonuum.

The Characternity

It looks like the Kickstarter for Characternity was not successful — it didn’t reach the minimum by the deadline — but hooray for Ray for getting it done, and what a great month of events to go with the work! Ukulele night? Yes.
