IONE CITRIN EXHIBIT AT WAX POETIC

"Divas: The Art of Ione Citrin," an exhibit by Los Angeles artist

Ione Citrin, continues at Wax Poetic salon and gallery in Burbank.

Citrin's art is influenced by her travels to India, Africa, Asia,

the Middle East, Europe, South and Central America, Mexico and the

Caribbean.

Her work often has a theatrical flair, in part, because of Ione's

entertainment industry background.

She starred in the hit morning TV show "The Prize Movie with

Ione," which aired daily in Chicago from 1967 through 1975. She's

also a voice-over artist performing celebrity characterizations and

cartoon characters for TV and radio commercials.

Every two months, owner Kerry Hite invites area artists to show

their work out of support for the local art community and because

having a rotating gallery exhibition inspires great conversations in

the salon.

The exhibit continues through March 15. The salon is at 3208 W.

Magnolia Blvd., Burbank. For more information, call 843-9469.
