    CA – Imaginary Friends Art Exhibition

    Gallery Nucleus hosts an art show on Saturday April 19, 2014 at 7:00 pm!

    Press Release:

    Wrought from the depths of our creativity, imaginary friends have been steadfast companions through amazing journeys and have helped to overcome unbelievable hardships. Despite being figments of our imaginations, these fantastical comrades cultivate immense growth and represent very real bonds.

    Inspired by these unreal friendships, award-winning children’s book illustrator Dan Santat‘s The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend weaves a tale about companionship, courage, and finding one’s place in the world.  Beginning on an island far away where imaginary friends are born, one patiently waits his turn to be chosen by a real child, but when Beekle is overlooked time and again, he sets off on an incredible journey to the bustling city, where he finally meets his perfect match.

    In conjunction with the release of Dan Santat’s book, Nucleus celebrates these not-so-real friendships with a roster of some of our favorite artists, including noteable children’s book illustrators, who would like to introduce all of us to their very own imaginary friends. Join us opening night as we pay tribute to friends both real and imagined.

    CA – The Super Big Micro Show

    Comments Off

    Nucleus warmly welcomes you to a gigantic, visual feast in micro proportions! Working within the 2×2 – 6×6 inch guidelines and in both traditional 2D and 3D media, this exhibit will feature an explosive roster of talent working in animation and visual development.

    December 11, 2010 – January 4, 2011
    Opening Reception / Dec 11, 7:00PM – 11:00PM

    The Micro Show began with a group of animators and friends working at Disney. Creating personal, bite-size works of art was a respite from their daily creative grind and eventually they gathered all the pieces and displayed them in modest exhibits. On December 11, we bring you the most macro of the Micro Shows thus far. Featuring the talents working at Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks, artists were invited to do everything but wallpaper our upstairs Atrium gallery with their micro-sized creations.

    This exhibit is sure to be an awe-inspiring event, not to mention a personal glimpse into extraordinary talents and minds behind your favorite animated films!

    Featuring artists Don Shank, Lou Romano, Nate Wragg and Scott Morse. We’re celebrating the launch of their much anticipated book: The Ancient Book of Sex and Science, a follow up to the ever popular and sold-out The Ancient Book of Myth and War.

    From the imagination of some of the most sophisticated artists in the animation industry, this new volume explores the strange frontiers of both sex and science throughout history. From instruments of innovation and the Atomic Age to analysis of the mind, body, and seduction of the human form.

    This exhibition will feature original artwork straight from the book’s pages, and is a rare opportunity to catch all four very talented guys in one place.
