Calling all fans of Gravity Falls — .The Nucleus Art Gallery in Alhambra, CA is currently showcasing pieces of art dedicated to the former animated Disney show. Fans of the show turned out in droves for the exhibit's opening reception with the line stretching around the block for the chance to check out the exhibit and meet show creator Alex Hirsch.
The showcase, open until August 21st, contains a full room of artwork created by artists from the show, almost all of which is for sale.
The exhibit also contains a piece by Alex Hirsch and one by Jason Ritter, the voice of Dipper Pines. Both of these original pieces of art are currently part of a silent auction that ends at 7 p.m. on August 19th. The Ritter piece is currently sitting at $200 and the Hirsch, $700, so be ready to open that wallet next Friday if you really want either piece of artwork.
A fun bonus to visiting is that you get the chance to enter a contest to win a prize from Alex Hirsch. All you have to do is draw a new design for Mabel Pine's sweatshirt and the artist behind the one that Alex chooses as his favorite will win the prize. It says that the winner will be announced online on August 20th, so if you want to try and meet Alex, I would recommend trying to visit on August 19th or 20th. With so many drawings up, he'll almost definitely be there in person to look them over and select his winner.
If you are a fan of Gravity Falls, it is well worth making the trip to Nucleus. There are a lot of interesting pieces that fans of the show will definitely appreciate it. Plus you can take almost everything there home if you particularly like it. You can see some of the pieces and find out more information about the at ExhibitGalleryNucleus.com.
