Gallery Nucleus Presents:





June 11, 2011 – July 04, 2011  

Opening Reception: June 11, 2011(7 pm - 11 pm)

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a few words can make a delightfully pretty picture. This exhibit has 13 fresh, diverse, and notable young artists visually exploring their favorite idiom.

Idioms are playful expressions of any language. Consisting of phrases or sentences that do not literally mean what they say, illustrating them results in works that are visually striking, whimsical, humorous, and downright fun!

A range of aesthetics and mediums will be on display and include drawings, paintings, paper-cuts, and more.

Featured Artists: 
Ming Ong, You Byun, Brittney Lee, Matte Stephens, Dadu Shin, Catia Chien, Miki Sato, Nicole Gustafsson, Lorena Alverez, Ahren Hertel, Nico Duffaut, and Daniela Volpari

Learn more about each artist with insightful interviews at the Nucleus blog.

Also opening the same night in the upstairs Atrium gallery is LOCALS, a solo-exhibition by Pixar and DreamWorks artist Nate Wragg.

Exhibition Details 
As we grow older and drift from year to year, we find ourselves filling our days with busy schedules and routines and in that haze of work and responsibility, we often lose track of those living amongst us—the ones who live in that hard-to-see spot just out of the corner of our eyes; the ones inhabiting the world where our imagination borders our realities.

These are the local friends and foes populating the world around us. Everyday these spirits hide in plain sight, all the while filling our very existence with every personality we see and hear. The very creatures and characters we walk past everyday are those we forget the most—hiding just around the corner at the coffee shop down the street, or right behind that tree in the woods by your house. They aren't hard to see, and are actually pretty easy to find. All you have to do is look…and you'll find them living in that dark space under your bed, or up in the clouds—in the worlds you dreamed of as a kid.
