Abundant with fantastic galleries, the NoHo Arts District is a safe haven for artists to create and showcase their work. I rediscovered a way to enjoy our neighborhood by checking out the Figure Drawing from Life opening reception at Gallery 800, located in the historic Lankershim Arts Center. This gallery features personal works of members of the Art Directors Guild and is always open to the public (check out www.Gallery800.com for hours).
The works featured in this exhibit are from the figure-drawing workshop held at the ADG in Studio City, which I was able to participate in and enjoy despite my artistic skill level. I was even asked to pose for the class. Yes, I was *somehow* able to stay still for 10 minutes. No, I was not brave enough to pose nude. Trying my own hand at figure drawing, I discovered an edgy style of my very own! Now, I'm ready to conquer the art underground. Look for original "Lou!" works taped up in a gallery near you!
The Figure Drawing from Life exhibit is scheduled until the end of July. Exhibits change about every 6 weeks so make sure you contact the gallery for the latest details and hours.
