Harry Potter Tribute Exhibition at Gallery Nucleus

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 was the movie to see this weekend, breaking box office records as the biggest opener ever. In sunny Alhambra, CA, Gallery Nucleus set their own records with their “Harry Potter Tribute Show”. The show’s opening night on July 9th attracted over 1,000 Harry Potter fans, who waited hours in a never-ending line to drink butter beers and see 100 original works and inspired paintings by the Potter films. “We’ve been working on this show for over a year, beginning with a Harry Potter art blog,” shared Gallery Nucleus owner Ben Zhu. Most impressive in the exhibit are original paintings by legendary poster artist Drew Struzan and Harry Potter book cover artist Mary Grandpre. All of the artwork was curated by an open submission process that invited fans and professional artists alike to contribute. The Harry Potter Tribute Exhibition shows at Gallery Nucleus from July 9 – August 1, 2011 - Caro.
