Gallery Nucleus Unveils TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Artwork from Upcoming 30th Anniversary Tribute Exhibit

     July 5, 2014


It’s a good thing this exhibit isn’t on the east coast.  My roommate (my sister) has been very tolerant of my love of horror-themed art.  Clearing more wall space for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles artwork probably wouldn’t fly at this point.  However, if you are in the Alhambra, CA area and do have some white walls that need filling, check out “Heroes in a Half Shell: A TMNT Art Tribute Show” at Gallery Nucleus from July 12th to August 3rd, wrapping up just before Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters on August 8th.

There’s no mention of items pertaining to the new film, but the exhibit will have production pieces from Nickelodeon’s CG animated series and loads more Ninja Turtle-themed artwork covering Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo’s 30-year pop culture run.  Hit the jump to check out two preview pieces from the event, artist signing information and more.

teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-artwork-nucleus-galleryOpening night goes down on Saturday, July 12th from 7 to 10pm.  It’s open to the public, so there’s no RSVP necessary.  Nickelodeon and Nucleus are putting the call out for “appropriately themed costumes,” so feel free to go all out.  In fact, if you do show up in Ninja Turtle attire or purchase something at the exhibit, you can bypass the $5 admission fee and enjoy the opening night festivities free of cost.  Here’s what Nickelodeon and Nucleus will have going on:

Opening Event Highlights Include:

  • Meet Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo Costumed Characters
  • More than 60 pieces of TMNT tribute art
  • Complimentary refreshments including a special green “mocktail”
  • FREE Door Prize for first 30 guests
  • Contest Prizes
  • A Turtles lair where fans can get their photo taken with the costumed characters

There will also be an artist signing from 7:30 to 8:30pm.  The Nickelodeon show’s executive producer, Ciro Nieli, will be on hand to sign your memorabilia alongside design supervisor, Irineo Maramba, and IDW Publishing comic book artist, Dan Duncan.
