    Kurosawa Tribute Art Show at Tr!ckster 2011

    Press Release:

    TR!CKSTER and The Criterion Collection have joined forces to curate a one-night-only celebration of the works of legendary director Akira Kurosawa on Friday, July 22, 2011. Cited as an inspiration to generations of storytellers, Kurosawa’s films resonate with a singular clarity of vision, and his images last in our minds long after the last frame has played.

    This intimate show will feature original pieces by artists from the worlds of comics, animation, and illustration, including: Mike Allred, Scott C., Josh Cochran, Francesco Francavilla, Robert Goodin, Victor Kerlow, Ted Mathot, Scott Morse, Sho Murase, Bill Presing, Jim Rugg, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Connor Willumsen. Though the gallery show will be free to enter and enjoy for the general public, all proceeds from sales of these works will be donated to the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund.

    This is a special engagement gallery event, existing for one night only, with all proceeds to benefit the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund.

    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!
