It’s not often that I get to hit up galleries and art exhibits, reason being that most exhibits in my lovely town don’t appeal to me or my broke-ass can’t afford to attend the ones I want to. So I remain a closet artsy-fart with little to no chance of observing beautiful work that I can actually get. Because let’s be honest folks, you should never go to an exhibit unless you really “get it” or at least have the humor to joke about it when you don’t.
In a place called Alhambra, east of LA, there’s a gallery called Nucleus that not only has free admission but a reputation for showcasing great work from up-and-coming artist. The current exhibit is called “Line of Style: Fashion Illustration Spanning the Globe” which features fashion illustrations from talented artists from around the world like Coco Pit (Paris/London), Pomme Chan(Bangkok/London), and Naja Conrad Hansen (Copenhagen), to name a few.
It’s always refreshing to see the work of artists who have a style completely their own, in mediums that range from water color, to india ink, to digital rendering. There’s also a small shop at the entrance of the gallery with prints, books and merchandise from designers and artists you may or may not of heard of.
This exhibit, though humble in size, is one I recommend if you live in the area or happen to be there anytime between now and April 26, 2010. For more info on the exhibit and gallery visit http://www.gallerynucleus.com.
