Charla-Palooza comes after a 2021 show in Chicago, which marked Charlie Benante’s first-ever substantial exhibition of his artwork. He’s notably also been behind every Anthrax album cover art the past 30-plus years. In addition to Anthrax, Benante is currently part of the Pantera reunion with several dates planned for 2023.
Carla Harvey is a cartoonist and illustrator whose work has been featured on the cover of Heavy Metal magazine. This event celebrates the release of Harvey’s 10th annual anthology of art created on her tours, GASH 10. GASH is a yearly publication of Harvey’s artwork.
