Always a nice place to go to. I’m not really a art person but going here build a great appreciation to it.

The rear room is always diverse with different art exhibits. They do lots of sign ins and meet and greats. I have purchased some great art work from goonies and air bender. Great gift ideas for the art/comic/nerd in your family.

A fantastic Gallery to stop in at anytime. When you enter you are welcomed by fantastic art books, zines, pins and so much more. Beyond the floating divide will be the current show in progress. Theres even more in the back with another gallery space upstairs. Didn't go on an opening night, but will have to in the future.

We got to the gallery by the 78 LA Metro bus coming from Union station. We went on a weekend so no traffic and very quick.

Love coming here for art events like Yakuza, Gravity Falls, Atlus and many more. Such a nice venue to buy art, merch and such from events that were held. Great venue to look at art pieces and meet people. Staff are so kind and friendly. It is such a good venue.

Great small gallery with a good selection of art books and enamel pin(yes please) and prints. The exhibits are freaking awesome and change pretty often and they have frequent events and a good online presence. I highly recommend stopping by if you're anywhere remotely close by as there are places to eat nearby . It makes a nice outing to go see the artwork and then go eat.

Just go!

Edit: Yeah, still good!

The variety of art prints available is fantastic. From Disney princesses to Marvel and DC, to Anime and Manga, as well as many other artists, the LE and AP prints, books, and graphic novels make for an enjoyable art shopping experience for pop culture art collectors. Many of the prints and books are signed by the artists. This month they had book sales, so there was a vast selection of art and children's books on display. In the past, I purchased a Mulan themed framed watercolor from their lovely curated Mulan exhibition at the gallery. This trip I found a tote bag by Junko Mizuno that was an exclusive for her 2020 exhibition, Ravenous Delights. They also have a selection of pins, cards, even deluxe playing cards (Avengers, Harry Potter, or Mandalorian themed) and other gift items available.

A small store with a small selection, but they picked good ones to put out for sale, so I still spent a good amount of time looking through what they have.

This space is super cool. The book selection is great! I really liked browsing the art books by small/independent artists. The gallery in the back was also nice!

I so enjoy this gallery and all of their showings. I've found incredible art every single time I've been here. Love their book collections. Small place but you can easily spend a couple of hours just looking and appreciating everything they offer.

Incredibly unique and talented gallery behind a comprehensive art and graphic novel store? In Alhambra? Yes. New favorite spot. Will be back soon.

I love nucleus, I've been going since it opened and I get my print and pin fix here. They have amazing art exhibitions and fun events. If you have time just go and browse. Support by buying a print or art book ;)

The theme art shows are always a big hit here. I knew through Facebook about nearby events. They also did one with Disney before too. Lots of movie themes or in this case anime themes.

Small venue area but has a good vibe or energy when you have crowds of people coming in.
Its a free event and if your nearby Alhambra than its not a bad night event. You are allowed to take pictures and buy art posted on the walls.

Overall enjoy the art themes.

It's always a fun experience and it's really nice to see new art from artist you don't know about. I love the posters that are for sale,they always have my favorite characters from movie and shows I love.

Stopped in for the first time to attend the Puglie event last week. The entire venue was well lit and cleanly, ideal for an art show! All staff members were all super helpful and kind, 10/10!

Nucleus is an art gallery that appears relatively small initially, but contains a large amount of pieces, including an upstairs section. We came while they were having the Yakuza exhibit, and the tattoo designs were extremely impressive to say the least.

A great gallery for pop culture and illustration. They almost always have a cool show going on. Daily admission is usually free. Tons of great places to eat around here too. If you're going to a gallery opening day be sure to get there very early since it's a small gallery. They've very hard-working and kind staff.

A great gallery that manages to get great artist and speakers for their panels. They have a nice set up for their events. Lots of parking around the area. Only complaint is that they need to be more organized with their panels. People I have met all seem to have the same complaint about their lack of organization in handling big crowds.
