Focusing on fashion illustration at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra


Sunday’s Star-News carried a story on the Gallery Nucleus fashion illustration exhibition we recommended recently in our weekend guide.
Caroline An reports:
Twenty-five artists from Europe, South America, Asia and Pasadena are represented in the exhibit … Just as varied as the artists’ backgrounds and experiences are the different media hung on the walls — from paint to watercolor to ink to textiles.
The artists have worked with top fashion designers, including Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. Their works have been published in high-end publications such as Vogue, Elle and Nylon.
“We wanted to get a basic consensus of where contemporary fashion illustration is currently at,” (Nucleus’ director Wade) Buchanan said.
More photos and exhibit details, after the jump.




That’s Jasmine Helm, below, assistant curator at Nucleus and the exhibit’s guest curator. Helm secured the international art pieces showcased in “Line of Style,” and she worked with Portugal-based designer Fernanda Pereira, who produced clothing, hats, wraps and jewelry for the exhibit.


Runs through April 26. Hours: Sunday-Monday, noon-8 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Gallery Nucleus, 210 E. Main St., Alhambra.
