Books, Art and Everyone's Favorite Catchy Tune!

I heard about this event and just had to share! The upcoming release of the new Disney Press children's book "It's a Small World" is being celebrated in style at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California. 

Starting Saturday the 17th, artwork will be displayed throughout the gallery all with the theme of global peace to celebrate the release of Disney Press' "It's a Small World", a children's book made using the Sherman Brothers' famous lyrics and illustrated by artist Joey Chou. The exhibit features artwork from 45 artists, including Chou, all taking their inspiration from the Disney Parks attraction.

The Opening Reception is Saturday the 17th from 7pm to 10pm and will not only have some of the artists present, but will feature a book signing with Joey Chou as well as a raffle with one of the prizes being a signed copy of "It's a Small World". Admission is free and refreshment will be served. Click Here to see the event page and to pre-order your copy of the book.

What a great theme for an art exhibit with some Disney flair! If it wasn't on the other side of the country, I would so be there. I told someone at the gallery this and they let me know that a preview of some of the artwork that would be at the show was available on their website! I looked at the pieces and was amazed at how much they reminded me of sitting on that boat in that classic attraction! The colors and the faces of the children featured in some of the pieces brought a smile to my face. Check out the preview by clicking this link. Let me know what you think about the pieces as well! Do you get the same familiar feeling as I do?

If you are in the Alhambra, California area, I would definitely urge you to stop by this exhibit. After the opening on Saturday night, the exhibit is available to view every day until October 3rd. Visit for directions and other information regarding the gallery.
