Exhibit honoring famous Sherburne cartoonist to be held at Chenango Arts Council

NORWICH Last August, American cartoonist, humorist and illustrator Randy Glasbergen of Sherburne unexpectedly passed away leaving a void in the industry never to be filled.

Leaving behind a loving family and an indelible legacy of his own unique brand of wit and creativity, Glasbergen's works are still at the request of publishers around the globe even a year later.

He really considered himself a writer above everything else, said Karen Glasbergen, wife of the late cartoonist. He spent the bulk of his time working up the 'gag' on a legal pad and quickly doodling out a concept for what the cartoon would eventually become; but he labored over his writing, she said.

In honor of his achievements, and to pay homage to his impact on the local arts community, a collection of Glasbergen's selected works are on display at the Chenango Arts Council's Maria Brown & Raymond Loft Galleries at its 27 West Main St. location, Norwich. An exhibit opening featuring hors d'oeuvres and mini-margaritas will be held at the facility admission free on Friday, September 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
