Jeanie Madsen Gallery hosts a red carpet event, opening reception and classic hollywood art party.
Ode to Hollywood, celebrates Hollywood and LA culture. It will feature an eclectic group of over thirty artists curated by Jeanie Madsen.
Jeanie Madsen explains, “We were looking for artworks that celebrate the essence of this great city’s rich cinematic legacy and diverse artistic culture.”
Ode to Hollywood was created to bridge the gap between historic Hollywood cultures to the contemporary pop culture of Los Angeles.
Madsen talks about the show and how it came about, “I wanted to provoke an energy of excitement and appreciation for our great cultural city. Sometimes we take it for granted that we live in one of the greatest cities in the WORLD.”
Artists include: Curtis Thompson, Joyce Hill, P Ambush, T Mikula, Auron Haan, Maureen Vezina and many more.
Madsen talks about the artists in Ode to Hollywood, “I chose artists who were able to connect with the culture of LA and Hollywood through their art.”
She continues, “The artists are from amateurs to mid career. from MA to LA. one artist is a retired Exhibit designer, another TV repair man.” Finally she adds “Creativity has no status.”
