The Griffin Gallery – The WOW factor!!
So every once in a while, we play at a place that I don’t know if we’ll ever get a chance to again or not. I am not sure if they even allow events here, but are so wonderful, that they deserve some recognition.
Bill Mack is the artist that is being featured and although I clearly can’t post pictures of his work, it is really worth you and your family stopping by and seeing. Too often we assume geniuses live in far off cities, but when you realize that we have artists that are getting international attention (that isn’t just lip service either) and doing work that will make you pause and just appreciate amazing talent, it’s worth the extra time to take someone you love over to check it out.
With that said, the Gallery is amazingly beautiful with fountains, wonderful landscaping and interesting little sides. At one point you walk through a secret door that is behind a painting… that itself is worth the drive over there.
Unfortunately, you probably will miss the original ‘H’ from the Hollywood sign. It’s only being shown until the end of the month. This H was rescued from the base of the hillside that overlooks LA. Some of it had to be repaired using other pieces of the other letters, but it’s just cool to see.
Within the Gallery, there is an entire section, where bill used parts of the old letters as canvas for his painting. You just will never see anything like this again.
Here’s some shots that the Gallery ok’d for us to post. We were featuring the Jaztronauts this evening.
