Now on view at the Maxwell Alexander Gallery in California is Landscapes of the American West, a showcase of paintings by artist Glenn Dean (b. 1976). Dean, a native Californian, is primarily a self-taught painter who, at an early age, used his emulation of the California Impressionists to inform and guide his personal development as an artist. His paintings, which he creates on location throughout the southwest (his larger paintings are completed in the studio from sketches made en plein air), have already earned this young man much recognition, including both the Grand Prize and the Artists Choice awards at the inaugural Tucson/Sonoran Desert Museum Plein Air Invitational. For Dean, painting the landscape is spiritual; he believes Nature is a divine gift, and it should be the goal of every landscape painter to use their talent to honor The Creator through their work.
Glenn Dean: Landscapes of the American West features 37 works (34 paintings, and 3 charcoal drawings), displayed in custom-made Arts & Crafts style frames. The show has been well-received, and sales have been strong. It will remain on view until May 4th.
The Maxwell Alexander Gallery is located at 6144 Washington Boulevard, in Culver City, California. For more information on the show, and to see all of the paintings in the show, please visit the gallery’swebsite, or contact the sales manager, Beau Alexander, at 310.839.9242.
