Local Artist Makes The Entourage Set

Sunday was the premier of a new season of Entourage on HBO. In the episode, one scene is Vinny Chase’s new mansion. The boys are playing pool, and there are a couple of sexy images of women in the background. They fit right in with Vinny’s decor.


And the art happens to be the work of Louisville’s own Jeaneen Barnhart. The works were chosen by the show’s art consultant, who found the works through Carl Hamilton of the ArtXP Gallery in Butchertown.

Barnhart said the Entourage producers loved the works, which you can see on her website (called Sexy Cool Ladies).  She is working on a big project of her own at the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center. Set to open as soon as this month is the new Gallery M, which will showcase her work and many others.

Hamilton, who also provided artwork for ABC’s Extreme Makeover and the HGTV Network, wrote on his blog that “HBO and Entourage wanted some hip and sexy art of ladies around the decor. Fortunately for us, they loved the “Sexy Moments” series.”

Hamilton’s ArtXP Gallery in Butchertown is holding a special sale Saturday, with 50 percent off many pieces, with prices starting at $50.
