Chuck Jones Virtual Experience

Local Tempe artist, Craig Cheply (right) and his 96 year-old father-in-law, Harry Van Kirk, paid a visit to the "Chuck Amuck: A Legacy of Laughter" at the Tempe Center for the Arts this past week.  Both Cheply and Van Kirk found the exhibit entertaining and enlightening; bringing back many fond memories for them both.

Update!  May 19, 2010:

Mr. Cheply sent us a photo of one of his paintings that we thought we'd share with our readers.  Cheply has also exhibited at the Tempe Center for the Arts.  This painting is titled, "X Marks the Spot."  You can learn more about the artist by visiting his website,
