Nucleus Presents the Flight 3 Show:
Original work by the artists from the Flight 3 anthology will be on exhibition from July 8 to July 26 in our beautiful two-story gallery. We will be featuring pages from the book along with other new, original works from the artists. The show is geared for people of all kinds- from the art enthusiasts to the comic buffs, Flight fans, and new readers interested in the exciting graphic narrative art form. Following the success of our last Flight show this one should be just as entertaining. Flight began as a small independent project with an unpredictable future, but has quickly become a top-selling, critically-acclaimed comics anthology now being published by Ballantine Books, a division of Random House Publishing. Come join Nucleus and the Flight family on this fun-filled night. We will have a DJ playing music and an official Nucleus bartender will be serving drinks throughout the evening.
