It’s not often you see caricatures of Mayor Joanne Monaghan, Former Mayor Rick Wozney, City Councillors by the dozen, Gordon Campbell and many, many more hanging out on the walls of the museum. The Kitimat Museum and Achieves was packed on Friday October 8th for the opening of Caricatures by Gerry Hummel
“The museum is doing a show of cartoons, mainly a collection of old things that I did for the Northern Sentinel and the Weekender years ago and some of my new stuff. The cartoons that are here I donated to the museum and they sent the collection to be appraised so they decided to put on a show,” said Hummel.
The collection deals with a lot of local politics. Hummel began drawing cartoons in Grade 5. He’s been drawing caricatures ever since. The collection, although it goes back into the Kitimat political scene of the 90’s, much of it is still relevant and funny today today. The exhibit runs until November 13th.
“It’s amazing to see my work displayed like this. I’ve never seen a group of my art together,” said Hummel. He thanked the museum for putting on the show and the person who framed them for doing such a wonderful job.
Several Councillors showed up to examine the past adventures of City Council.
