Once a vital outlet for local news, culture and entertainment and proving ground for burgeoning journalists, cartoonists and illustrators, alt-weeklies have plummeted in number since the 90s; vanishing entirely in some markets.

Disappearing Ink is a solo exhibition by Fred Noland, sampling work from his years as an editorial illustrator.
