Featured Jamestown cartoonist will sign books at gallery opening

Sam Ackerman, whose “Sam’s Cats” cartoons are featured in the Jamestown Press, and Genevieve Dupre, a Jamestown resident and artist, will show their works at the Schock Gallery at East Ferry starting Saturday, June 20.

The show, which will run for three weeks, will have an opening reception this Saturday, June 20 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Ackerman will sign copies of his book, “What cats can and can’t do” at the reception. Sam said he grew up with dogs and cats, and currently has two cats. “I draw cats as they are a little more mischievous than dogs. If I left my car keys out, my dog might just chew on them, where my cat would probably take a trip to Providence,” he recently told the Press.

Dupre is a student at the San Francisco Art Institute, and will be showing work from her recent travels around Europe, as well as local scenes.
