Artist Joel Schiller
Gallery 800, located in the heart of the Noho Arts District, 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 Abra Brayman, the new Curator of Gallery 800, 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 - Friday: 12:00 - 8:00 p.m.; Saturday 2:00 - 8:00 pm; Sundays 12:00 - 6:00p.m. For questions about the gallery or artwork, contact (818) 763-8052
