Rolemodels: Opening Reception Details

All New Fantasy Playing Card Game & Exhibition

Pack your crested armor, dust off your old cloak, and get your troops ready for battle!

Light Grey Art Lab's upcoming exhibition will take you on a journey through the ancient forest, over the rigid mountain spine, and through the land of fire, as you explore our fantasy land of Vyk' Tornaahl and the honorable, magical, and devious characters who reside there.

The Rolemodels exhibition is a fantasy portrait show, highlighting artist's personas, role-playing characters, and sharing more about themselves through their choice of weapon, talent, or epic legend. This show features the work of 99 artists, illustrators, games designers, and concept artists who hail from Microsoft Games Studio, Fantasy Flight Games, and more. These artists have traded in their pens and brushes for magic wands, massive broadswords, and supernatural abilites. Rolemodels celebrates each of these artworks, along with the artist and role model who created it: our real life art warriors.

Rolemodels runs from October 25th through November 30th, with an opening reception on Friday, October 25th from 7pm-10pm. Visitors are invited to dress in fantasy costume in celebration of their RPG alter-egos and Halloween. Light Grey Art Lab will be transformed into a place of legends, our Hall of Heroes, featuring portraits and landscapes by 99 artists, an ancient map of Vyk’Tornaahl, banners of the four kingdoms, and a space for playing the Rolemodels: Battle for Vyk’Tornaahl card game.
