Cartoonists open Melville exhibit

More than 100 fans and friends of "The Berndt Toast Gang," Long Island Members of the National Cartoonist Society, flocked to the Huntington Arts Council’s Art-trium Gallery for the opening reception Thursday of  “Laugh Lines,” an exhibit featuring the likes of Archie, Violet, Smitty, The Lockhorns and more.

Fans from ages 2 to 92 discussed Betty and Veronica, the best of Mad Magazine and how the humor displayed on the walls is timeless. Pianist Anne Stevens and singer Kevin Kaye had guests dancing and singing along.

The Art-trium Gallery is at 25 Melville Park Road, Melville. The exhibit runs through November 30; gallery hours are Mon.-Fri., 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. More information, including the list of artists represented at the exhibit, is available at or by calling 631-271-8423.
