Works by Corey Ciszek, Melanie Deal and Howard Kanter and Steve Sager will be on display April 6 through May 25 in the Saw Room at the Alley Gallery, 1712 Sherman Ave. rear 2.  

Like shuffling through the Sunday paper to get to the comics first, these artists help viewers absorb vital information through colorful witticism. They share their humorous response to the world around us through collage, compartmental storyboarding and irreverent absurdity. Cutting/pasting, doodling and playful collaborations still prove incredibly satisfying and therapeutic, just as they did in childhood.

There will be receptions from 5 to 8 pm. on April 6 and at the same time on May 4.
