Adam West, the tights-wearng star of the 60s Batman TV series, is selling artwork he has created based on villains from the show. He lives in the Idaho resort town of Ketchum and tomorrow is the opening night of Criminals on Canvas at the Gilman Contemporary gallery.
The 88-year-old West said in a statement that his paintings capture the humor, zaniness and depth of Batman villains as well as the Freudian motivations of the Batman. I have to admit it, I watched this as a kid and LOVED it. It was on in prime time TV and everybody of the day guest starred including Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt as Catwoman.
Sun Valley and Ketchum attract wealthy visitors during the holidays and West is scheduled to attend. Kaching!
