Growing up, The Goonies was one of those movies I could watch over and over. The sense of adventure that permeated the film satisfied my childhood craving to go out into the world and find something. To become something greater. Lots of other people felt that too, and it’s since become a film revered by many, and one people talk about when they talk about the Eighties.
The Goonies opened on June 7, 1985, almost exactly thirty years ago. To celebrate, Gallery Nucleus outside Los Angeles, CA is presenting a Goonies 30th anniversary art show opening May 23 and running through the official anniversary on June 7. Below, you can see some exclusive images from the show. Read More »
If you’ve noticed an increase in the amount of Star Wars talk in the past few days, don’t blame J.J. Abrams. Well, actually, the fact that he’s promoting that *other* franchise right now does have something to do with it. Mainly, though, the Force has been strong because May 4th is fast approaching.
Unofficially, May 4 is known as Star Wars Day (“May the Fourth Be With You”) making it the perfect time for all kinds of places to plan Star Wars related events. Disney is doing a bunch of things, 30th anniversary screenings of Return of the Jedi are on deck, and one southern California art gallery is joining in the fun.

Whether you care to admit it or not, Harry Potter means something special to all of us. Maybe you’re a huge fan who can recall each time you bought a new book, saw a new movie, or discussed the series with a friend. Then there are the converts who, at some point, had the series recommended to them and subsequently devoured the franchise with rabid vigor. Yes, even you non-fans have memories – negative ones count too – of the Potter phenomenon, which has been a major part of popular culture since the late Nineties. That phenomenon is closing a major chapter later this month when the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 hits theaters and Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA is celebrating.
They’ll host a massive Harry Potter Tribute Art Exhibition from July 9 through August 1 which features over 100 works from over 50 artists, including signature Potter artists Drew Struzan and Mary Grandpre. After the jump, read more information about the exhibit and see just a sampling of the art that’ll be on display and for sale. Read More »
