Our dedicated staff of professional art consultants delight in taking visitors to the gallery on a journey down memory lane, we are the home of famed Looney Tunes director and creator, Chuck Jones, the man responsible for such memorable cartoon characters as Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, Pepe le Pew, the Grinch, Rikki Tikki Tavi. He is also one of the “fathers” of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, and Porky Pig. 

The Chuck Jones Gallery presents his original drawings, watercolors, oil paintings as well as his popular cel art editions in a loft-like space that is the perfect setting for viewing art. The gallery represents all major animation studios as well as a variety of other painters and sculptors such as Marcus Pierson, and the rising art star, Fabio Napoleoni.  The gallery is also home to the Dr. Seuss Collection.

2012 is Chuck Jones’s Centennial year and the gallery has commissioned a select group of artists to re-interpret the Looney Tunes characters Jones made so famous. They include such well-known and internationally acclaimed artists as Eric Goldberg, James Coleman, Mike Kungl, Mike Peraza, Bob Elias, and James C. Mulligan (a sampling of their art is below.)
