ABOUT GALLERY 800:
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. These 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 420 ADG members have shown their artwork in the ongoing exhibitions. Gallery 800's mission is to promote the works of talented entertainment industry professionals, in an intimate venue, on a personal level. Gallery 800 hours are Thursday - Saturday 2pm - 8pm and Sunday 2pm - 6pm.
