Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center & project Awe Present
THE MODEL’S ARTIST:
AN ART EXHIBITION & SHORT FILM
Over the past decade, internationally renowned figurative artist, Zhenya Gershman, and distinguished artist model, Mark Snyder, have been collaborating on a unique project – a living portrait changing over time. Together, Gershman and Snyder work to break the dominating artist-model stereotype and shift to one of equal partnership. Zhenya describes: "they speak of love at first sight, but when I met Mark it was 'muse' at first site, and we've been working together ever since”. This collaboration has been documented through the eyes of Emmy-winning film Director Jake Gorst in a Mainspring Pictures short film, “The Model’s Artist”, which will be screened in the Center’s 200-seat Renberg Theatre during the Opening Reception (@ 8pm). Following the screening, LGBT will recognize Mark Snyder with an Arts & Culture Lifetime Achievement Award.
Opening reception and film screening: Friday, May 15, 2015 7-9 p.m. (screening at 8pm)
Exhibit runs through June 13, 2015
