Animation artist to exhibit work at Northwest
The Northwest Department of Art's Visiting Artist Series continues this fall with an exhibit by Stephen Goldblatt, co-owner of the award-winning 3D animation studio Bazillion Pictures ( http://www.bazillionpictures.com/#home).
The exhibit runs Monday, Sept. 14, through Friday, Oct. 16, in the first-floor gallery space of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building.
Bazillion Pictures' specialty is character animation. Since 1993, co-owners Goldblatt and Jeff Beith, along with their highly creative staff, have created a wide variety of animation projects. Their unique blend of animation, design, technical knowledge and experience has given them an edge in today's competitive market. Through the years, Bazillion has excelled at many genres of animation by applying the same passion to medical and industrial animations as they do to their character work. A small sampling of their current and past clients include Universal Studios, Walmart, McDonalds, Hallmark, Microsoft, Bayer, John Deere and the Federal Reserve.
Goldblatt, who graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a bachelor of fine art in painting and printmaking, will give a lecture on his work at 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14, in DeLuce 244. The lecture as well as admission to the gallery is free and open to the public.
The DeLuce Gallery is open from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday; 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; and 1:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
