Although I dislike most of Tim Burton’s work, Edward Scissorhands is one of his few that I love (along with a handful of his earlier stuff). I also love when artists pay tribute to cult films a la Crazy 4 Cult. On April 16th in Alhambra, California two great tastes will come together in the form of Gallery Nucleus’ Edward Scissorhands Tribute Exhibition. The exhibit will feature the works of over 50 artists, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. Fans of the film are encouraged to dress up and come out to celebrate its 20th anniversary. There will be free refreshments and ambrosia (if that’s your thing). Admission is free and there’s also a raffle! If you dress up in your best Scissorhands-inspired attire you’ll receive five free raffle tickets which could win you original artwork or Nucleus gift certificates as well as a few other prizes. Here are a few of the amazing pieces that caught my eye.

So if you’re in town, why not check it out? For more info, go to: scissorhands20th.blogspot.com or if you’re hip, visit them on the Facebook.

    You know, it wasn’t that long ago (ok, relatively speaking…I guess a decade) that I would have listed Tim Burton as one of my favourite directors, but honestly I don’t think I will watch another of his new releases as things stand. Same with Johnny Depp.

    This looks great though. Edward Scissorhands is a wonderful film — clearly artistically inspirational, which reflects how refreshing and creative the original film is. Unlike Burton’s output these days…sigh. It’s sad.
