CA – Ravina The Witch? Signing + OVUM Art Show

Press Release:

In celebration of the english release of Junko Mizuno’s graphic novel: Ravina The Witch?, Gallery Nucleus is proud to host an exhibition of original paintings from the pages of this beautiful and austere fantasy comic on Saturday, August 5th at 6:00 PM.

Junko will be in attendance to use her wand to bewitch guests and sign books. There will also be fun treats, activities and new exclusive releases on opening night.

ABOUT RAVINA THE WITCH?:
Ravina The Witch was originally published in French by Soleil, and tells the story of a little orphan girl who is turned into a witch after receiving a magic wand from a strange old woman. Ravina is granted great power that she can use to make the world bend to her will — if it doesn’t corrupt her first.

Mizuno is a highly sought after visual artist, and it’s always exciting to see more of her work made available in English. The presentation of Ravina The Witch brings to mind the worlds of Cinderella or Labyrinth, but Mizuno’s work is decidedly more mature than those, so readers should not expect something suitable for an all-ages audience

Film Director Mike Mitchell appears at Gallery Nucleus for a Closing Reception on Saturday July 29, 2017 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

Film Director Mike Mitchell will be exhibiting his personal illustrations of various people from found photos. Not quite caricature, not quite slice of life drawings; these images exist in a grey area between parodied character studies and endearing portraiture.

About Mike Mitchell:
Mike Mitchell was born in Oklahoma city. He graduated from Putnam City North High School, having been deeply involved with their arts programs. He then left behind his small town and moved to Los Angeles to attend the California Institute of the Arts. During his time in college, animators were in high demand. This led him into television, working for distinguished filmmakers such as Tim Burton and Spike Jonze.

WA – Courtney Huston Art Exhibition

Artist Courtney Huston opens a solo exhibit at Ballyhoo Curiosity Shop on Thursday, July 20th at 6:00 PM. Courtney’s work will be on display July 20th – August 15th.

About the artist:
Courtney Huston is an illustrator who strives to make fantastical narratives while exploring her own domestic story. By intertwining a piece of herself in every piece, she hopes viewers are able to feel the same emotions felt at the time of creation. Her work is highly inspired by screen printing and other printmaking techniques. Her pieces are made with traditional ink and watercolor. These materials allow her to play with the juxtaposition of hard geometric lines and watercolor washes.
