After These Messages...

7pm - 11pm


Free Admission
Refreshments and breakfast cereals will be served
Several artists will be in attendance



After These Messages is still available for view at the gallery during normal store hours.


Gallery Nucleus has joined forces with some of current animators and set out to reconnect with the cartoon culture from the yesteryears creating an exhibition based on Saturday mornings of the past. Exhibiting in the gallery will be over 20 artists from today’s commercial and animation industries. Being a generation largely influenced by television these artists attempt to revisit, reinvent, and pay homage to their favorite animated icons as adults with child like fervor and contemporary and personal aesthetic. By exploring the inspirations of their past they reflect upon their artistic identities of today creating interesting parody like results that are humorous, sentimental and sincere. Ranging in style the show is a colorful pop culture treat with a live DJ and breakfast cereals served. Works on display will be paintings, prints, sculptures, and installation.
