15 Jan Rod Serling’s NIGHT GALLERY 50th Anniversary Retrospective
Rod Serling’s NIGHT GALLERY
50th Anniversary Retrospective
Creature Features & Peekaboo Gallery’s latest exhibit celebrating the 50th anniversary of Rod Serling’s NIGHT GALLERY, the macabre TV anthology that aired on NBC from 1969 to 1973.
This exclusive exhibition of supernatural art and artifacts is headlined by the original paintings created for the series by artist Tom Wright, now a celebrated TV director on shows such as N.C.I.S. and SUPERNATURAL. Each painting captured the chilling themes and storylines of each episode, introduced by the ominous tones of host Serling.
The exhibit will also feature additional artwork by Jaroslav “Jerry” Gebr, whose work appeared in the 1969 NIGHT GALLERY pilot and THE SIXTH SENSE when it merged with Serling’s series during syndication.
The exhibit will also feature a complete visual history of the series, including original props, vintage promotional memorabilia, rare behind-the-scenes photographs from the show’s production, and much more.
The opening evening will be highlighted with personal appearances by Tom Wright, various cast & crew members from the series, along with authors Jim Benson & Scott Skelton, who wrote the definitive book on the series: Rod Serling’s NIGHT GALLERY: An After Hours Tour. Both will be on hand to sign copies of their book, though quantities are limited.
The exhibit features Wright’s original paintings, plus new tribute paintings and sculptures created by a host of noted contemporary artists.
