Nucleus Gallery Ukiyoe Heroes 2 & Capture Creatures

Gallery Nucleus at  has two shows going on at once, but no new announcement for an Adventure Time tribute show, darn. Still you'll be hit over the head with pop culture as Jed Henry makes ancient Japanese art referencing cartoons and video games and Capture Creatures bears no resemblance to Pok√©mon at all. Nope, not at all.

Nucleus is very pleased to present a prolific project by one of our favorite artists, Becky Dreistadt.  Capture Creatures is a year-long showcase of 151 creatures hand-painted by the artist, accompanied with imaginative stories by her partner Frank Gibson.  Raised on a steady diet of cartoons and comics, Japanese and otherwise, Dreistadt has always dreamt of creating her own band of unique animals.

This ambitious project will culminate with an exhibition of all 151 available original 5" x 7" works presented in conjunction with the release of a hardcover book compiling the creatures.
Come meet Becky and Frank on opening night as they greets fans and signs copies of her new Capture Creatures book.
Also being released at the opening will be an exclusive Capture Creatures T-shirt, poster, pins/badges, and a new Squrious vinyl toy!
Don't miss out on this opportunity to meet Becky and Frank and see all 151 creatures in person! Free drinks, snacks, games, and prizes!
Capture the creatures along with the rest of us on the official website.
