The Art Directors Guild (ADG, IATSE Local 800) Gallery 800 presents a special 11th anniversary exhibition of Art Unites 11, a dynamic mix of diverse artists’ work, opening on Saturday, October 14 from 5:00pm - 8:00pm, with a hosted reception and live music featuring the “Do Drop In” jazz trio. Located in the heart of the famed NoHo Arts District, Gallery 800 showcases guild members’ personal art in a series of shows throughout the year. Art Unites 11 concludes the 2017 Gallery 800 exhibition series, which is open to the public. This exhibit will run through Saturday, January 6, 2018.
In keeping with the spirit of “Art Unites,” Gallery 800 will feature artists whom are members of the Art Directors Guild (IATSE Local 800) in addition to invited members of the Motion Picture Costumers Guild (IATSE Local 705). These talented artists are leading art department professionals, who, through a combination of observation, passion and imagination, bring the writer's words and the director's vision to life in television and film. When not working as integral creative members of the entertainment community, they contribute to the fine art scene with their personal artwork.
Representing Gallery 800 are Abra Brayman, Curator of Gallery 800, and the ADG’s Christian McGuire. Gallery 800, located at 5108 Lankershim Blvd. at the Historic Lankershim Arts Center in the heart of North Hollywood, is open Thursdays and Fridays, 12pm-8pm; Saturdays, 2pm-8pm; Sundays, 12pm-6pm.
