In September we previewed here at borg.com a great new coffee table art book, the beautiful Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz. Next week an original art poster exhibit of Ortiz’s work will open at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California. Artist Juan Ortiz will be present for a book signing at the preview reception on Monday, November 18.
Ortiz created retro-styled movie posters for each of the 79 episodes and the pilot of the original 1960s Star Trek. His vibrant colors and 1960s imagery captured the essence of the episodes and demonstrated his love for the classic sci-fi series.
The exhibit will open to the public Wednesday, November 20, 2013, and close January 5, 2014.
The Paley Center for Media is located at 465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, California 90210. The preview reception begins Monday, November 18, 2013, at 7 p.m.
Star Trek: The Art of Juan Ortiz is available at Amazon.com.
