Animator Ron Campbell to exhibit Beatles cartoon art, paint new works

Friday-Sunday Feb. 16-18 at 404 Houston St. (Sundance Square)

Legendary animator Ron Campbell will be exhibiting artwork featuring the Beatles and other characters — such as Scooby Doo, the Smurfs, Rugrats, Winnie the Pooh, Flintstones, Jetsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and more — that encompass his 50-year career in Children’s Television.

The exhibit is free and all works are available for purchase.

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles classic animated film, Yellow Submarine. In honor of the film’s anniversary, Campbell, one of its animators and the director of the 1960’s Saturday Morning Beatles Cartoon series, will make a personal appearance at Milan Gallery, located at 404 Houston Street in Fort Worth, from Friday, Feb. 16 to Sunday, Feb. 18.

Campbell will showcase his original Beatles cartoon paintings created specially for the show as well as create new Beatles pop art paintings at the exhibit.

The hours of the exhibition are as follows:

— Friday, Feb. 16 – 5–9 p.m.

— Saturday, Feb. 17 – 2–8 p.m.

— Sunday, Feb. 18 – Noon – 4 p.m.

Campbell’s former studio was awarded a Peabody and an Emmy for his work in children’s television. Since retiring after a 50-year career, he has been painting subjects always based on the animated cartoons he has helped bring to the screen.  With particular emphasis on The Beatles, he shows his Cartoon Pop Art in galleries worldwide.
