The Art Directors Guild (ADG, IATSE Local 800) announced today that Scenic Painter Bridget Duffy, Artist Gabrielle McKenna, Graphic Artist Ray Bravo and Visual Effects Artist Pete Graziano will have their artwork featured in Gallery 800's exhibit Four Artists You Should Know. The exhibit’s opening reception will take place on Saturday, February 13, 2016 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. and will feature live music, hosted bar and appetizers.
Gallery 800 showcases Guild members’ personal art in a series of shows throughout the year.
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. Since Gallery 800 opened its doors in March 2009, more than 600 ADG members have shown their artwork in the ongoing exhibitions.
Representing Gallery 800 are Curator Denis Olsen and ADG Awards and Events Manager Debbie Patton. Gallery 800 (located at 5108 Lankershim Blvd. at the Historic Lankershim Arts Center in the heart of North Hollywood) is open Thursday through Saturday from 2pm to 8pm and Sunday from 2pm to 6pm.
