My friend, Valerie, and my boyfriend indulged me in a little pre-birthday weekend fun and accompanied me at the opening night of the ‘Zombies In Love’ show at Gallery Nucleus. I have been excited about this show since last year and was thrilled that it was happening on the weekend right before my birthday– great way to celebrate for me since I love the group art shows at Nucleus and I FREAKIN’ LOVE ZOMBIES!
Well, okay… they do scare me (the idea of it, anyways) but I can’t help be morbidly fascinated at the same time. I would sit through any type of zombie flick, no matter how ridiculous they may be. I honestly can say I enjoyed watching Zombie Strippers. Just sayin’. It was awesome.
As usual, Gallery Nucleus went above and beyond with the opening party. It was kicked off with a zombie walk, which we missed– but who knew I would one day attend an art gallery full of people in zombie make-up? Eat My Taco provided some delicious eats for people and zombies a like.
Dr. Sketchy provided a life (dead?) drawing event where we got a chance to draw a zombie model! This was definitely my favorite part of the night and I came prepared with my sketchbook. I loved the whole setting that Nucleus and Dr. Sketchy provided for the artists, and I must say… it was the first time I did life drawing with drunk people giggling loudly right behind me. Though I found it didn’t really deter or bother me too much.
We took a break from drawing and watched a dance crew, Teen Grov, perform a zombie inspired hip hop number. Let me tell you- nothing like watching zombies break dance. After all that, I still haven’t gone to the BEST part! Behind the gallery, they had a zombie shooting range set up at the parking lot.
You heard me correctly. Zombie shooting range. Here’s a video of my boyfriend demonstrating how to take some shots at some poor, meandering zombies.
