Mike Gabriel Exhibit Opens April 17

Book signing event with legendary animation director, art director and animator to be held May 17.

The Center Stage Gallery in Burbank, CA will be hosting an exhibit of artwork from legendary animation director, art director and animator Mike Gabriel. Entitled “The Fearless Art of Mike Gabriel,” the exhibition kicks off with a grand opening reception on April 17 with the artist in attendance. Gabriel will also be on hand for a book signing event on May 17.

Gabriel has spent a large portion of his career contributing to award-winning animated feature films at Walt Disney Studios. This exhibit will include his personal artwork that will be both on display and for sale.

“I hope an evident pride in being a cartoonist comes through as you peruse my art. I am not aspiring to be a fine artist I am aspiring to make fine cartoon art. There is a subtle difference. The goal in my art, is to make the complex simple. Cartoons break form down to its essence. I love that. I love seeing just how so little can say so much in such a direct and powerful way. Bold, direct, confident strokes that show vigor and intent. Nothing timid or uncertain. I respect bold commitment in art. I try to be that kind of an artist.”
