Glendale’s Brand Library Gallery is just about the toughest public gallery for an artist to get to show his work in.  What an art lover gets is a tightly curated show.  Luke Van Hook is a talented artist who will be among 5 artists who will be at a show running August 2 – September 5,2008.  

I have admired Luke’s work and style of painting for a while. I got to know him when I was on the jury committee with MAFA a few years ago.  He’s an abstractionist.  He has been exploring the myth of Giotto’s Perfect Circle.  His work is a compelling study of the circle and the tedious repetition to create larger patterns as if some sort of secret code.  I am excited for him to be in this venue and can’t wait to see his most recent work.

The opening reception is Saturday evening from 5-8PM.  The reception will include meet and greet time with the artists.  There will also be live music and dance performance during the course of the evening.
