Huntingdon — Juniata College Museum of Art will host “Drawing Flies: Jay Hosler’s Science Comics,” with an opening reception from 5-6:30 p.m. By visual means, artists draw attention to what we casually miss or deliberately ignore; they make us stop, consider, and re-evaluate our physical and social worlds. Jay Hosler, associate professor of biology (Juniata College) and graphic novelist, wants you to pause and admire the beauty of that insect before you smush it. Hosler’s highly acclaimed science comic books — Clan Apis, The Sandwalk Adventures, Optical Allusions, The Last of the Sandwalkers — harness the sense of wonder that propels researchers and artists alike. This interactive exhibition invites you to explore the creative process of writing and drawing comics – and into the world of insects.
