L.A.’s PixelDrip Gallery Hosting ‘Community’ Fan Art Exhibit

Fans of NBC’s comedy Community are frequently noted for expressing their devotion to the show in unorthodox manners, from the #sixseasonsandamovie Twitter campaign to fight its rumored cancellation to the Troy/Abed slash fiction found upon taking a wrong turn on LiveJournal to the actual video game one Reddit user made based on the video game episode "Journey To the Center of Hawkthorne." 

This weekend, the PixelDrip Gallery in Los Angeles will celebrate this convergence of pop culture, comedy and rabid fandom with "Six Seasons and A Movie": an exhibition of a rather diverse range of Community fan art, hosted at Monk Space Gallery. 

As participating Jim "Food One" Mahfood explains in the trailer for the exhibition:

"I grew up watching stuff like The Cosby Show and Diff’rent Strokes where there’s a laugh track. And then you watch Community and it’s this whole other experience with layered jokes and references to do strange and bizarre things. There’s a level of sophistication to it that I think resonates with creative people."

Works in the show range from "Stacked Deck" by Claire Hummel, a series of cartoony playing cards featuring the principal cast to Mason Phillips’ Sergio Leone-nodding poster for A Fistful of Paintballs, to Joe Palumbo’s amazing and terrifying Matroyshka Deans. Events surrounding the exhibition include a Greendale Costume Contest, a Trivia Competition and a Puppy Parade, which hopefully won’t get interrupted by you stealing one of Annie’s pens and everyone deciding to do a bottle episode. 

Meet the artists and more in the "Six Seasons and a Movie" trailer below.
