Gallery 839

Artist Cristi Lyon exhibited her work in March 2020.

Gallery 839 is a nonprofit gallery featuring art by members of the Animation Guild, IATSE, Local 839. Artists on exhibit are tried-and-true in their fields of animation and visual art, offering a unique merging of the Union and fine art worlds.

At this small gem in Burbank, the artwork is diverse and eclectic. The Animation Guild’s first gallery opened in 1962, and its current Gallery 839 launched in 2010. Over the years exhibitions have included media such as pottery, ceramics, bronze, poly resin, paint, pencil, glasswork ,and more.

The gallery is home to individual and group shows, and artists receive 90% of the commission from their sales. Better yet, the work is affordable. At monthly openings, the public can enjoy art and refreshments while mingling with the artists behind today’s popular movies and TV shows, as well as animation industry legends.

Upcoming Exhibit

July 
Unique and United: Art Show and Fundraiser
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 11, 2024, 5pm-9pm

TAG animation artists from favorite TV shows and movies have created art to be auctioned to raise funds for The Animation Guild Foundation’s mutual aid fund. Featuring almost 30 artists, the Unique and United exhibit is dedicated to showcasing the distinct visions of artists not often seen beyond their animation work, from 2D and 3D to experimental mediums.

The silent auction will take place on July 11 and end at 8:30 p.m. Winners will be able to pick up purchased artwork at the end of July when the exhibit closes. No RSVP is necessary for opening night.
