Worth a thousand words

Holmes cartoons on display

July 05, 2011

For decades, Donald Button Holmes was part of the voice of The Aegis editorial page. His cartoons, put together in a style not typical of the craft, graced the opinion pages of this newspaper until his death a few years back. In all, he penned about 2,300 visual musings on the state of affairs in Harford County and environs beyond.

An assemblage of his works is being put together for public display Sundays this month and in August at the Liriodendron Mansion at 502 W. Gordon St. in Bel Air. Also on display will be editorial cartoons by John Stees, longtime editorial cartoonist for The Sun and The Evening Sun of Baltimore.

The mansion, and all its exhibits, are open to the public Sundays from 1-4 p.m.; Access to the editorial cartoons exhibit is every Sunday from July 10 through Aug. 14 from 1-4 p.m. except this Sunday, July 10, when access is from 1-3 p.m.

We encourage all regular readers of this page to try to swing by and see the exhibit sometime in the next few weeks.
