Walt Peregoy Exhibit in Encino

Walt Peregoy

The Chocolate Bar in Encino is hosting an exhibit of personal artwork by Walt Peregoy. The exhibition runs February 1-27. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, February 6, between 7-10pm, with Peregoy in attendance. Peregoy is perhaps best known for his work as a color stylist on 101 Dalmatians and how he brought a strong modern art sensibility to the Disney features. He’s had an extensive animation career beyond that film, and alongside his industry work, he’s been painting and drawing non-stop. Most of his personal work has never been exhibited which is why this upcoming show sounds like such a treat. The Chocolate Bar is located at 17312-A Ventura Boulevard.

    Walt’s acceptance speech at the Disney Legend Awards was itself legendary. He eviscerated current animation basically saying “You guys no nothing about art!”

    WALT’S ART HAS ALWAYS BEEN TERRIFIC. COUNT ME IN. I WOULDN’T

    Peregoy is one individual who marches to the beat of his own internal drummer. This exhibit will be worth seeing.

    One often overlooked aspect of Peregoy’s career is his work in the late 1960′s as the head of the background department at Hanna-Barbera. The one show that really made the best use of his talents there was “The Perils of Penelope Pitstop”.
