Hero Complex Gallery




February is Oscars month, a time that reminds us all why we love film so much, so to celebrate our most cherished films we're rolling out the red carpet as we announce our next gallery exhibition...landing in San Francisco on February 15th: “Oscar Legends!” and  “Weapon of Choice, Phase 2!”


First up, in San Francisco, we are putting on TWO art exhibitions under one roof, with the opening reception landing on Friday, February 15th, from 6-10pm, at the SOMArts Cultural Center.


On one side of the gallery “Oscar Legends” will feature art inspired by some of history’s most groundbreaking Oscar-winning films. Annie Hall will be there, as well as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. And Once they’ve heard about it, The Usual Suspects will probably come from as far as Chinatown and Casablanca to see this exhibit in all it’s Glory. Put down your Pulp Fiction and come witness all this American Beauty for yourself! Longtime film and art-lover, Rotten Atom, has graciously agreed to help curate the show, and we couldn't be more excited! 


On the other side of the gallery, we will be presenting “Weapon of Choice, Phase 2!”  Our Weapon of Choice show in January proved to be such a huge hit with the fans and the artists that we will be presenting all new art from artists who wanted to take a stab at this sweeping eclectic theme.  New subjects will be tackled with great enthusiasm by Blunt Graffix, Godmachine, Nicole Gustafsson, Chris B. Murray, Marie Bergeron, Ben Thomas, Joey Spiotto, Alex R. Kirzhner, and David Welker just to name a few.  Oh, and Craig Drake just might have a new piece in the show too that you won’t want to miss! 


In addition to the SF showings, we'll be exhibiting the "Oscar Legends" artwork up in Portland, Oregon at the famous 86 year old grand movie house, The Hollywood Theatre. Oscar Legends will be on display during the theater’s annual Oscar Night Gala on Sunday, February 24th from 3pm until the doors close. Come dressed to the nines in your tux or evening gown, or dress in your Lebowski bathrobe if that's your thing...just be prepared to have fun celebrating with 500 of your closest film fan friends as you share in Oscar-based art during a live telecast of the Oscars. 


Whichever theme the artists’ have chosen, they've risen to the challenge to deliver some mind-blowing art and we can’t wait to share it all with you!
