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.
