Cthulhuwho1 | 30 comments At The Mountains Of Madness: An H. P. Lovecraft Tribute Art Exhibit Opens Saturday, 16-Oct in the Los Angeles Area

Note: I have provided all of the information, images, and the press release for this event on my blog at: -16-oct-in-the-los-angeles-area/


Thanks to an email notice from Chris Perridas of the "H. P. Lovecraft And His Legacy" blog ( I have the following information to share:


From The Press Release:

210 East Main St.

Alhambra CA 91801

p: (626) 458 - 7482

Gallery Nucleus Presents


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.

Learn more about the exhibit and the fifteen contributing artists by visiting online at:

From The Cover Letter:

"I hope that this finds you well. Gallery Nucleus is a premier illustrative and entertainment arts gallery located just outside of downtown LA. We have been hard at work organizing a tribute art exhibit to none other than H.P. Lovecraft. The exhibit is set to open this Saturday and features some of the best in the biz. John Jude Palencar is contributing three of his published Lovecraft book covers. You can read more about the event and the twenty contributors here:

Would you be able to help spread the word about this event? These artists have put blood, sweat, and tears into these works and I am hoping for as many eyes on them as possible. There is an opening reception this Saturday (Oct 16) starting at 7pm and all of the works will be viewable online at the stroke of midnight here:

Lovecraft-related costumes, edwardian/steampunk attire is quite welcome and even encouraged for the opening. Free admission & refreshments plus artists in attendance.

I've attached a few of the featured works and a press release for your reference. Please let me know if you have any questions and I promise a quick reply. Thank you for your help!

Wade Buchanan"
