An exhibition of Phoebe Gloeckner's original artwork from her graphic novel The Diary of a Teenage Girl will be on display at 3LD Art & Technology Center, in conjunction with Marielle Heller's stage adaptation of The Diary of a Teenage Girl, currently playing the venue. The exhibition will open on March 24 at 6pm.

Sarah Cameron Sunde and Rachel Eckerling direct the play, which focuses on a bright 15-year-old girl growing up in San Francisco in the 1970s. The company features playwright Heller (Minnie), along with Jon Krupp (Pascal), Michael Laurence (Monroe), Mariann Mayberry (Charlotte), and Nell Mooney (Kimmie).

The gallery space and exhibit is open to the public Mondays through Fridays 11am-8pm (closing early on Tuesdays at 6pm). Saturdays and Sundays the gallery is open from 7pm to 8pm, running through May 1. The exhibit includes 24 full-page illustrations and sequential art pages from the graphic novel, in addition to comics that Gloeckner drew when she was a teenage girl, and some of her more recent work. The original art pages, created with brush, pen, and occasional photo-collage, offer a behind-the-scenes look at the book's creation, including a deleted scene and penciled notes on possible alternate dialogue. Admission to the exhibit, assembled by Bill Roundy, is free.
