“Around the Neighborhood” is an exhibit of original cartoon art for the editorial page of the (Greenfield, MA) Recorder by occasional local political cartoonist E. J. Barnes, up through 31 July 2009 at Green Fields Market in Greenfield, MA.
Since 2005, E. J. Barnes has produced approximately-monthly political cartoons for the Recorder on topics relevant to Greenfield, Franklin County, and Massachusetts at large. Her most recent exhibition of Recorder art focuses on her work from 2007 to the present. The Recorder is the daily newspaper of Greenfield, Franklin County, and the North Quabbin region.
In addition, there are cartoons that have appeared in The Commons, a Brattleboro, VT newsmonthly, and an illustration to accompany a Recorder “Life & Times” article by Chip Ainsworth in 2008.
The art is on display in the store’s two sit-down eating areas, at the front facing Main Street near the deli, and on the mezzanine near the rear of the store. There will be an opening reception with refreshments on Sunday, 5 July, 2–5pm on the mezzanine.
