Graham Annable's Zombie Love

With much ado about zombies in the coming week, we thought it'd be nice to revisit Graham Annable's "Last Duet on Earth"

Annable is also a contributor for Zombies In Love, opening this Saturday (Feb 6).  Check back this week for a very exclusive preview of his work in the exhibit.


Avatar Prints Available

Last Saturday's Avatar Panel was a great time to be had.  It was really inspiring and informational to learn about the details behind the visuals of the film.  Thank you to all the fans that made it out to the event and our special thanks to the panelists.  We were very honored to present such talent.

We are also excited to offer these limited edition Avatar prints!

The Art World?

This is a must watch video for all artists, art collectors, and anyone who has been a curious observer of the contemporary art world wondering what makes it tick. Narrated by art critic Robert Hughes the film documents his observation of the art world/market for the past half century. Although biased, the film is truthful in its own right and should stimulate discussion and inquiry as to why we look at art the way we do and what the function of art is or can be.


Zombie Show UPDATE

Junko Mizuno "ravenous akko" acrylic and gold paint

We have been working to make the Zombies in Love exhibition a strange and wonderful event to remember. In attempt to do so we have added some additional features to the show:

-FREE Zombie figure drawing workshop with a live (or dead) zombie model!

-We have invited the folks at "Eat my Taco" to be a vendor at the event. (there may be Brain Tacos for sale for all the zombies...or some close substitute)

-There is now a Zombie Shooting Gallery thanks to the folks at for working with us to make it happen.
We wanted to give people an experience that was close to a real zombie attack. Using gas powered air soft guns people will have a limited number of ammunition to take out a small group of walking zombies before they breach your perimeter. The zombies will be grunting and reacting to shots made whether in the arm, leg, in the head or other areas... Look for us in the parking lot behind Nucleus.

(check out all details in the event section)

Zombie Walk Reminder:
-Meet on the corner of Atlantic and Garfield at 6:20 to go over the rules and guidelines
-The walk starts at about 6:30
-We will be walking to Nucleus at which point the show will start

Katana Umbrella

Although this umbrella is known as the "Samurai Umbrella", I can assure you that a sword or umbrella knows no allegiance.  Stormy days are no match for those brandishing this umbrella.  After the season is over, this deadly accessory also makes for good coverage from the rain of blood from your enemies.  
Available at Kikkerland.

Zombies In Love love?!

Say what?

That's right. If immortal, sparkle-stud vampires can fall in love, why can't zombies? Yes, even souless, brain-eating machines are capable of frivilious, sentimental nonsense. My advice to you, if your brain is failing at conjuring up images of decaying bodies doing anything remotely romantic, you should DEFINATELY come and check out this show. We have these amazing artists who managed to escape a wave of zombie infestation and bring to us a wealth of illustrative and artful documentary of...Zombies in Love.

Here is one by a fellow zombie survivor Mindy Lee.

Check out her blog for more awesome images!

Here is one by another artist, Jim McPherson. Brave man.

Zombies will be in town from February 6 - 22. Please leave your flamethrowers at home. Thank you.

Hunting from Above

Most people don't realize that once Cavemen mastered the skill of "fire" and "round rocks" (later named "the wheel"), they took to the air with a new and improved hunting strategy.  Artist Scott C. depicts the notable moment in history through this newly released giclee print available here


Free Dr. Sketchy Session this Sat!

We are thrilled to host a free DR. SKETCHY session this Saturday during the opening of Lift Off:The Art of Airships.  The session will kick off at 8pm in our upstairs Atrium gallery with a pilot-themed model so bring your favorite drawing supplies and join in the fun.


"Lift Off" Artist Rick O'Brien

For the past decade, Rick O'Brien has been a one-man art department in Hollywood, designing, constructing and painting sets and props for such clients as Victoria's Secret, Luxor Las Vegas, Nikon, London IMAX, Konica, Tevo, Motorola, Honda, United States Postal Service, Proctor & Gamble, "The Contender" and "The Apprentice."


We are very honored to have the artist contributing to the Lift Off exhibition.  O'Brien is presenting paintings, sculptures, video, and also signing his book Counterweight.

Counterweight compiles stunning images from experiences, environments, and emotions perceived through the artist's diverse projects, as well as from his everyday life.  The artist captures the human condition expertly. Recognized by the Society of Illustrators, O'Brien's art has placed both gold and bronze and has received much acclaim and print exposure in various publications.


Through traditional mediums ranging from egg tempera and oil to gouache, wood, ink, resin, and plaster, the artist's catalogue beautifully scrutinizes Man and his journey.  The images below are teasers of what is in store for this Saturday's opening.
