    Re: Harry Potter Tribute Art Exhibition 7/9 - 8/1/11

    Last night's opening reception was crazy fun! 200+ people were in line outside when I arrived there at about 9:15, many were costumed and ready for Hogwarts heaven inside. As a centerpiece to the downstairs gallery a huge Voldemort sculpture (beautifully detailed & supremely creepy) lorded over the crowd and caused two small kids to immediately begin crying! Congrats to all the artists & to the staff at Nucleus for a triumphant event.

    Harry Potter art show pays tribute to the wizarding world

    Just in time for the July 15 release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2," Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra is showcasing a collection of art inspired by author J. K. Rowling's wizarding world.

    The tribute show features more than 100 paintings, sculptures and installations from 50-plus Muggle artists who share a love for all things magical.

    The event is the culmination of two years of open submissions on the gallery's Harry Potter blog, from which the bulk of the show was curated, said Ben Zhu, one of the show's curators. Gallery staff picked the "higher-level fan art," Zhu said.

    The exhibition also features art from professionals, including Disney artist Bill Perkins, movie poster artist Drew Struzan, and Mary Grandpré, who is best known for illustrating the book covers of the U.S. editions of the Harry Potter novels.

    "The thing that I really noticed about this exhibit is that most everybody who contributed is a fan," said curator Wade Buchanan. "Every piece has some kind of endearing quality to me. It's not just somebody that was like, 'Oh, I'm just going to do a themed piece on Harry Potter.' You can tell that they're sincerely a fan, and they're inspired by it. It's like little details in the pieces that stand out, that maybe only fans would really pay attention to."
