The Art Directors Guild (ADG, IATSE Local 800) Art Gallery 800, announces its first art exhibition of 2015, "Abstract," opening Saturday, January 17, 2015 with a hosted reception from 5-8:00 p.m. where the public will have the opportunity to meet the artists and preview their art. Gallery 800 showcases artists from all crafts within Local 800 in a series of seven shows throughout the year.

The Gallery 800 opening will have a hosted bar, refreshments, as well as live music by the “Do Drop In Trio.” Gallery 800 is located at 5108 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, in the heart of the Historic NoHo Arts District. The “Abstract” art exhibit will run through February 14, 2015.

Gallery 800’s mission is to promote the works of talented entertainment industry professionals, in an intimate venue, on a personal level. These leading 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. Since Gallery 800 opened its doors in March 2009, more than 420 ADG members have shown their artwork in the ongoing exhibitions.

Representing Gallery 800 are Curator Denis Olsen and Manager Debbie Patton.

Gallery 800 Hours:
Thursday - Saturday 2:00-8:00 pm
Sunday 2:00-6:00 pm
