Fractured Fairy Tales

 Opening Reception: Saturday, July 7 2012 | 7-10pm

On View: July 7 – August 11, 2012

 Delight in the whimsical and curious world of classic fairy tales re-imagined by 32 notable Animators as WWA Gallery presents Fractured Fairy Tales. Curated by Sandra Equihua and Drake Brodahl, this fanciful exhibit unleashes its talking animals and imprisoned princesses to the world on Saturday, July 7th 2012.

Amongst the oldest traditions in storytelling, these dark and bite –size cautionary fables were eventually reinvented and brought to life through Animation as enchanting and magical tales:  where we are taught that obstacles can be overcome, ugliness turns to beauty, and a nobody can become a hero, in an honest quest towards “happily ever after.”

Legendary Animators, such as those who worked for Walt Disney, have stylistically defined most of the characters from these tales that we’ve come to know and love today.

It is therefore fitting that Fractured Fairy Tales has some of today’s top Animation artists reinterpreting these magical worlds. While aesthetic influences can still be seen, each of the artists has brought their own unique style and vision, giving a new twist to these timeless classics.

Open to the public, the gallery reception for Fractured Fairy Tales is from 7 -10PM Saturday, July 7th. The exhibition will run until August 11th, 2012.
