Temple-of-Art_bookTemple of Art documents a two-year art and photography project; a unique collaboration between over 50 great artists and photographer/director Allan Amato that includes original work incorporating multiple modalities and disciplines.

The exhibition opened at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in December, and quickly became the talk of the internet. Many of the original pieces were snatched up by celebrity collectors, but the book reproduces all of them in a handsome, hardcover volume published by Baby Tattoo Books.

Many of the participants will be present to sign the books and discuss the feature film documentary that has evolved out of this unique project.

Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever Exhibit / Book Launch

Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever Group Exhibition and Book Launch

October 3 – November 2, 2014
Artist reception:
Friday, Oct. 3; 8-11PM

La Luz de Jesus Gallery
4633 Hollywood Blvd,
Los Angeles, CA 90027

Tom Neely is a painter and cartoonist whose art has been featured in galleries in California and New York, in dozens of magazines and literary journals, and on album covers. His debut graphic novel, The Blot, earned him an Ignatz Award and made it onto several of the industry’s “Best of 2007” lists as well as the Comics Journal’s “Best Graphic Novels of the Decade 2000–2010.” He authored the Melvins comic book, Your Disease Spread Quick, a collection of comic strip poems called Brilliantly Ham-fisted, and the painted novel, The Wolf. Image Comics recently released his series, The Humans, a fantastic series about biker apes.

But he is best known for the cult-hit indie comic book Henry & Glenn Forever, which he created with his artist collective the Igloo Tornado.

Starring notorious muscle-bound punk/metal dudes Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig (with a little help from soft rockers Hall and Oates), Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever is a love story to end all love stories. And here for the first time is the complete compiled collection of the graphic novel that details the fictitious romance of these real-life music icons. This tongue-in-cheek graphic novel satire is filled with adventure, subtle references, and humor, and the exhibition features dozens of pinup art and full-color covers from the original series along with many original comic art pages and new pieces inspired by Henry & Glenn.

The tender care Neely and a rotating cast of guest authors bring to the stories makes Forever and Ever so much more than a one-note gag — Glenn’s tantrums are risible; Henry’s patience is divine — and there are inside jokes galore for fans of heavy music. —Chris Martins, Spin
