Bar Marmont has seen its share of events, ranging from high profile magazine events to private celebrity soirees. Last night, the famed Sunset Boulevard hangout played host to members of Los Angeles' art scene by transforming its backroom into an impromptu art gallery. Displayed throughout, was a collection of graphite portraits by artist Drew Walker. The exhibit, aptly called, “A Face Can Tell A Thousand Stories,” showcased various portraits of internationally known film stars, rock royalty, sporting heroes and icons. Walker infuses symbols and imagery into each portrait, creating a cascade of emotions and feelings that are distinct to the personality of the sitter. CAW Gallery art liaison, Dr. Candice Kay Lee was on hand answering questions about the artist and chatting with guests, Mark Brooke and Mikel Mahjobi. Strolling through the crowded room, one caught snippets of conversations that ranged from all manner of topics, from Walker’s latest work to a guest’s recent visit to the Dali Museum to view Salvador Dali’sDisintegration of the Persistence of Memory.

If you have not already done so, check out Walker’s work here or in person and only then will you be able to appreciate the range of emotions and feelings that his artwork evokes.
