Mixed Media / Gary Lund
Gary Lund is respected as a painter and sculptor, but many people are unaware that he is an accomplished artist in several other media. Gary has also designed the film, characters, storyboards or backgrounds for such notable theatrical films as "The Point", by Harry Nilsson, an Emmy Award©-winning ABC Movie of the Week in 1970; "Peace at Last" by John Lennon and Jason Leen; and "The Legend of John Henry", which received an Academy Award© nomination in 1973 for Best Short Subject, Animated. In 1989, he was honored with the Benjamin Franklin Award for Excellence for his design and illustration of the book "LIFE: Before, During and After" and his illustrations have been featured in such leading publications as Rolling Stone Magazine and the Los Angeles Times. Gary works from his studio in Silver City, New Mexico, and holds the Bachelor of Arts degree from Chouinard Art Institute, which was later merged with the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music to become the California Arts Institute in Valencia, California.
