Since the Moonshine exhibit kicks off tomorrow night, I thought it fitting to conclude with a final artist spotlight on Nicolas Weis. He served as a visual development artist on Astro Boy, How to Train Your Dragon, and the upcoming film, The Croods.

"Never Surrender Your Treehouse," pictured above, certainly resonates with all of the artists featured in Moonshine--the idea of never relinquishing your true passions, and making art for the sake of creation, after hours and after dark. Nicolas' painting sets a tone that is both mature and playful, expressing the importance of retaining childlike qualities as we grow older.

If you can't make it to opening night, we hope you'll visit us before the show ends on September 6th--and, of course, on the 3rd for the special closing reception/book signing!
