The truth is out there. And by “out there,” we mean the NerdMelt Showroom on October 21.

That’s the night the Writers Guild Foundation will be chatting with Chris Carter, who created what might be the most influential science fiction show of the past 30 years. When Carter brought FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully to our screens, he changed everything we thought we knew about SF on TV. Along with TWIN PEAKS, THE X-FILES brought an adult sensibility to the fantastic, in a way that had rarely been attempted before.

Plus we were all just waiting for Mulder and Scully to kiss. Right?

Meltdown Gallery inside the Nerdist Showroom and Eat More Art Out Productions are bringing back the seventies and honoring one of the greatest sitcom series of all time with their first group art show, “Come and Knock On Our Door: A Tribute to John Ritter.”


RSVP and share on Facebook. 

With art from over 77 artists including: Dave Macdowell, Jim Mahfood, Mike Huddleston, Yelley, and many more! Original artwork and limited edition prints for sale!

Former roller derby girls Jane Dope, Sleazy Bake Oven and Hussy Whipped are trading their scuffed up skates and stinky safety gear for artist wrangling and gallery receptions as they host their first, of hopefully very very many, themed group art shows that might more accurately be described as art parties. Their plan to dish up a healthy serving of quality art in a low pressure, highly themed atmosphere is a foolproof recipe for an unforgettable event. “We want art to be fun and inviting, even if you think you know nothing about it. Our motto: Grab a beer and tell your inner critic to relax. It’s just art!”

Jane Dope is the founder of Angel City Derby Girls’ annual silent auction fundraiser Eat Your Art Out. In recent years, the trio has teamed up with Angel City Derby Girls and Titmouse animation studios to bring this Los Angeles art scene staple to unprecedented success. Now these ladies for ready for year ‘round curating! Art parties for all!!
