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