Joel Pett of the Lexington Herald-Leader

Lexington Herald-Leader editorial cartoonist Joel Pett will have an exhibit of his work at the Carnegie Center in Lexington, KY. The exhibit opens September 18 and runs through the end of October. The opening reception features Signe Wilkinson (Philadelphia Daily News), Jack Ohman (Sacramento Bee), Rob Rogers (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and William Hamilton (The New Yorker). The reception is already sold out.

From the profile story in Lexington Herald-Leader:

Pett said that preparing this show made him realize how fortunate and improbable his career has been.

“I have been ridiculously lucky,” he said. “I did not prepare myself in the classic way for this by studying art or political science, or even graduating from college.”
