We love animation, film, and contemporary art, and we specialize in proprietary projects with contemporary artists, and original and limited edition OFFICIAL art from all the major film studios--we have exclusive art from Star Wars, Harry Potter, and all the Disney features.

We also interview artists and filmmakers about their art and craft and their careers, to both inspire and promote those who are dedicated to a life in art--whatever form it may take. As Cinema Siren, we especially focus on women and diversity in film, but we also love superheroes and blockbusters (when they're good or fun or both!) Check out our interviews and ask us about art commissions. Many of the pieces we create for our collectors go on to be sell-out limited edition images!

We’d love to see those of you who are in town at the gallery this weekend!

Meanwhile, as part of co-owner Leslie Combemale’s double life, here is an interview with the new Chewbacca, just in time for the release of Solo: (MTFBWY!) and there is also a review on cinemasiren.com, if you want to read it 🙂

ALSO: For those of you who are excited about SOLO or love Star Wars, co-owner Leslie has an interview with the new Chewbacca, and can report he is a delight and a wonderful ambassador for the franchise!:

(and of course she has a review of the new movie on cinemasiren.com --and in a nutshell, it's a fun heist flick and a great palate cleanse for the recent SW darkness. read all her reviews on there, come in or email and argue or agree with her assessment, please and thank you!)

This weekend, in honor of the courageous teenagers (and the many wonderful teachers) who are standing up for change, we will be donating a percentage of sales at Artinsights to Every Town For Gun Safety or the Alzheimer's Association, whichever our clients choose.

So if you’ve never come by, haven’t come for a while, or want to see the CRAZY AWESOME Star Wars, Harry Potter, & Disney art we have, or have some framing to do, come by after 3pm on Saturday or Sunday 12-6 if you want to see Leslie,

Or visit Michael Barry (KING OF FRAMING!) between 10-3 on Saturday.

We will donate part of the sale to a worthy cause that will, in one way or another, help bring more clarity to our future 💜💕. COME SEE US—and have a great weekend!

Post a gif below to let us know who your favorite courageous character in film or animation is:

Yup. Star Wars history, currently in our gallery. #JohnAlvin #ReturnoftheJedi #StarWars #FilmHistory

UNCOVERED!: an early comp when Return was still called Revenge of the Jedi! This was created by John Alvin and ultimately was painted as the advance by an artist named Tim Reamer. It’s always so exciting to find some more of his art that was and is part of Star Wars history!

I'm posting this here before I go anywhere else as a special thank you for following the gallery on Facebook--I discovered I have one of the Christmas Peanuts limited editions they released that is NUTS in it's work, detail, and inclusion of characters and scenes of the classic cartoon.

These sold out immediately, so apologies if I was meant to offer it up to you, but now is the time! it's 30 inches long and took weeks for each to be hand-painted. The piece is $5600 unframed. Please PM me if you're interested. Thanks!!
