CA – Ladies of Animation Art Show

Ladies-of-animation-poster_FINAL2_smaller-662x1024

Press Release:

Gennie Rim, former artistic manager at Pixar and Disney, picks up her ongoing series centered on the art of animation with a new exhibit, “Ladies of Animation,” underlining the personal work of female artists from major studios including Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks. The Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, February 9th from 6 – 10 p.m at GRspace (114 W. 4th St. Los Angeles, CA 90013). The show runs through March 2nd, 2013.

Featured in the show are: Victoria Ying, Sho Murase, Helen Mingjue Chen, Nicole Mitchell, Clio Chiang, Griselda Sastrawinata, Anna Chambers, Lorelay Bove, Claire Keane, Fawn Veerasunthorn, Brittney Lee, Kendelle Hoyer and Lissa Treiman.

The women’s contributions span many disciplines within the world of animation from the design of feature characters to story and visual development in films such as Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Frankenweenie, and Paperman. The reach of their work extends beyond the studios into the arenas of toy design, graphic novels and advertising.

Of these artists, Rim says, “All of these women are world-class talent, and their personal work should be seen and recognized within the community of animation, and also within the world of fine art.”

A portion of proceeds will be used to support GRworks’ free monthly art workshop for kids — Rim’s simultaneous effort to foster interest and support for youth arts in Los Angeles. The next workshop, taught by animation artists, is scheduled for Saturday, February 15th from 1 – 3 p.m. at GRspace. For more information, please email info@GRworks.com.

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!
