Glendale Arts celebrated its 15th anniversary at its new home, ace/121 Gallery, in Glendale. On Aug. 5, dozens of art lovers showed up between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. for a first look at the gallery. They enjoyed drinks, bites and a live guitar performance. Photos were snapped of friends standing by several avant-garde wall hangings scattered throughout.  

Glendale Arts plans to operate and program the gallery as a multidisciplinary arts and entertainment venue featuring exhibits, performances, screenings, readings, classes and workshops. 

“We’re thrilled to be in our new home,” said CEO Nina Crowe. “It will further our mission to bring audiences and artists together.”

Complimentary drinks and bites were provided by Glendale Arts at their Summer Soiree on Saturday, Aug. 5. Enjoying the buffet is GA board member Miryam Finkelberg (in sunglasses).

Membership in GA’s SCENE (Showcase, Connect, Engage, Network, Experience) was announced. For $10/month or $100/year, members receive discounted pricing, pre-sale access and Glendale Arts’ SCENE Partners, including Antaeus, Theatre, Laemmle Theatres and the Museum of Neon Art. The first 50 attendees at the Soiree to sign up for membership received a SCENE T-shirt and swag bag.
