Gallery Nucleus Presents

AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS: H.P. LOVECRAFT TRIBUTE EXHIBIT

October 16, 2010 – November 8, 2010

Opening Reception: October 16, 2010 (7 pm - 11 pm)




Alhambra, CA – Gallery Nucleus presents an art exhibit tributing H. P. Lovecraft who is considered by many to be the most influential horror writer of the 20th century. Lovecraft’s stories deal with the terror of the unknown or incomprehensible and have inspired modern day talents like Clive Barker, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and H. R.
Giger. It has been recently announced that one of Lovecraft’s best known stories will receive big screen treatment at the hands of director Guillermo del Toro and James Cameron. It is difficult to deny Lovecraft’s influence on our culture.

The art exhibit promises to touch on the writer’s best known stories such as “The Call of Cthulhu” as well as some lesser known ones showcased in a variety of mediums in both two and three-dimensional format. It features several premier artists currently working in the film industry including Jordu Schell who was the character designer behind the “Na’vi” people depicted in Cameron’s Avatar. Several award-winning illustrators will also offer their interpretations of the classic horror tales including the acclaimed John Jude Palencar whose paintings have been commissioned for several Lovecraft publications. All works will be available for view online as well.

As a huge fan of Lovecraft's, I hope that the film project is handled with care. I can recall exactly how fast the Re-animator became a cult-classic, but even then those that watched it only watched it for mocking pleasure.

Lovecraft's work is hard to translate into film, but I believe it isn't impossible.

Secondly, great blog and I hope the small press becomes a success.

I know that www.deadmanstome.com did not become something overnight. I took a lot of time and money...
