Gates of Heck Retrospective Exhibition at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery

Small, but influential publisher Gates of Heck (1992–2000) is having a retrospective exhibit from Saturday, July 31 through August 11. Gates of Heck was the brainchild of publisher Katharine Gates. Throughout the 90’s, this adventurous imprint produced idiosyncratic projects by artists like Charles Burns, Gary Panter, Art Spiegelman, Annie Sprinkle, Carolee Schneemann, Steven Cerio, and many more. Celebrate the legacy of this visionary enterprise and meet the publisher at Fantagraphics Bookstore on Saturday, July 31 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Exhibition on view through August 11.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale Street in the heart of Seattle’s historic Georgetown arts community. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone 206-557-4910.
