Robby Krieger’s “Light My Fire” Paintings Exhibition Debuts at ace/121 Gallery

Glendale Arts has unveiled “Light My Fire,” a new exhibit at ace/121 Gallery featuring the paintings of renowned guitarist, songwriter, and founding member of The Doors, Robby Krieger.

The solo exhibition presents a collection of Krieger’s original paintings, reproduced as giclee prints on fine art/archival paper and museum-quality canvas. “Light My Fire” will remain open to the public until Saturday, May 11.

Ranked among Rolling Stone’s 100 greatest guitarists of all time, Krieger’s artistic talents extend beyond music into the realm of painting. His passion for art was ignited during childhood, nurtured by his mother’s introduction to the medium.

The exhibit’s focal point, “Light My Fire,” shares its name with The Doors’ iconic hit song, famously penned by Krieger. According to Krieger, the painting was inspired by universal themes like earth, wind, fire, and water, echoing the spirit of the song that influenced its creation.

Limited edition giclee prints of Krieger’s works are available for purchase, each personally signed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Proceeds from sales support Art for a Cause, Krieger’s nonprofit organization.

One of the nonprofits benefiting from Art for a Cause is The Music Path, a Glendale-based organization dedicated to providing students with experiential educational programs rooted in contemporary music. Krieger’s support for The Music Path stems from its mission to reintroduce music into schools and provide a platform for emerging artists.

The ace/121 Gallery, situated at 121 N. Kenwood St., Glendale 91206, welcomes visitors Wednesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Additional information is available at ace/121gallery.com.
