Frame by Frame


"Ka-pow" was once a sound often heard in the Foundry Art Centre (520 North Main Street, St. Charles; 636-255-0270) building. Railroad cars were once checked in the central hall here for their ability to "couple" correctly: Cars were hauled up a ramp at one end of the gigantic space, then dropped down the tracks on a collision course with a stationary testing bumper. In a long gallery flanking this boom-boom room, the Foundry is sponsoring the Ka-pow! Comic Art and Storyboarding juried exhibit, opening with a free reception tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. The artwork was selected and judged by juror Phil McAndrew, a noted illustrator who has published work in MAD Magazine and whose cartoons can be seen on websites such as Feral Pizza, Picture Book Report and Marvelous Mustache Factory. The work will remain on display through Friday, September 7. Visit for more information.
