The Cartoon Art Museum and The Chuck Jones Gallery will open a holiday Pop-up gallery at San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum November 27 through December 31. On exhibit in the pop-up store will be the Gallery’s core collection including works by legendary artist and animator Chuck Jones, works from Disney Studios, work from the holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas and more. The pop-up store will be open at the Museum’s 781 Beach Street location in San Francisco during regular Museum hours–11 am to 5 pm daily except Wednesdays.
The Chuck Jones Gallery specializes in original production art from vintage and more recent animated films. The Pop-up gallery in the Cartoon Art Museum will feature vintage Courvoisier set-ups from Disney Studios beginning with “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”; layouts by Maurice Noble for “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” plus storyboards, drawings and production cels from that classic Christmas animated special and rare vintage Warner Bros. production art from before the studio closed in 1962.
“We’re thrilled to be opening a Chuck Jones Gallery Pop-up at the Cartoon Art Museum this fall and winter in San Francisco. With its unique position in the community as a destination to view and study the best in the fine art of cartoons, animation, and the associated arts, it was a natural selection for us,” said Scott Dicken, VP of Retail, the Chuck Jones Companies.
About the Chuck Jones Gallery
Founded in 1991 by four-time Academy Award-recipient and animation legend Chuck Jones and his daughter, Linda Jones Clough, in Corona del Mar, CA, the Chuck Jones Gallery quickly became the center for the work of not only Chuck Jones, but also all the major animation studios. Linda Jones Clough is credited with helping develop the market for animation art. In 1992 she created the “1 of 1” pairing an original production drawing with a hand-painted cel art edition of one.
Included in the on-going displays at the galleries are art from all major animation studios as well as original paintings and limited edition fine art from a variety of internationally known artists such as Dr. Seuss, Tom Everhart, Fabio Napoleoni, Marcus Pierson, and Fran Lew. All the leading studios, including Disney, Peanuts, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and the art of Star Wars are regularly featured.
The Chuck Jones Gallery has locations in Costa Mesa, San Diego and Santa Fe, New that are the destinations for art collectors and visitors from around the world. Owned by Linda Jones Enterprises, the publisher and distributor of the art of the legendary animation creator and director, Chuck Jones, it is devoted to the art of American Pop Culture.
