TONIGHT IN LA: “Ancient Book of Sex & Science” Show

Chances are you’ve already noticed the ad for this show running on the right side of the Brew. If you’re in LA, there’s one place (and only one place) that you should be this Saturday evening: Gallery Nucleus for the gallery show opening and book release party of The Ancient Book of Sex and Science. This is the follow-up to the out-of-print 2007 release The Ancient Book of Myth and War. The same four artists are involved: Scott Morse, Lou Romano, Don Shank and Nate Wragg. The only difference is that last time all four of them worked at Pixar; now only two of them do (Morse and Shank), while Lou Romano has moved on to Laika and Nate Wragg over to DreamWorks. The opening is from 7-11pm, and paintings, sculptures, prints and books will be on display and available for purchase. For those who can’t make it, you can sign up for an online artwork preview at the Gallery Nucleus website, or better yet, pre-order the book from Amazon.

UPDATE: Those who pre-order the book from Gallery Nucleus will receive a copy signed by all four artists.

Just a heads up for those who may be interested in the book, if you buy it direct from Gallery Nucleus, it will be signed by all 4 artists!

I bet sometimes of their own volition.

Lorelei says:

huh…while the art is indeed pretty cool, it’s a book obviously for guys, made by guys… not an equal representation of what sex is, at least with what is shown in the preview pages.

Lorelei, thank you for pointing out the obvious. We are men. As I’ve never had sex as a woman I would never have the pretense of expressing what that experience is.

Lorelei- As Don pointed out, the point of the book is not to be “an equal representation” of sex; It’s merely the personal art of four friends who happen to be men, who cover a different subject for each of the books in the (planned) 4 book series. Check out the 1st book in the series “The Ancient Book of Myth & War”; I’m sure you’ll dig it.
