Glenn Dean (update)

Glenn Dean
I first wrote about California artist Glenn Dean in 2010. Since then he has continued to add to his website portfolio more examples of his subtle, atmospheric evocations of the American West and the California coastline.

His work is featured in a new solo show at the Maxwell Alexander Gallery in Culver City, CA, titled Glenn Dean: Landscapes of the American West. In addition there is a page of Dean’s work as regularly represented by the gallery.

Dean paints primarily on location, as evidenced by the small size and direct, painterly approach of the majority of his paintings.

For more, including my more detailed description of his work, see my previous post on Glenn Dean.

The current show at the Alexander Gallery runs until May 4, 2013. There is an article about the exhibit on Fine Art Connoisseur.

    I agree, Daniel. I don’t know if there’s an appropriate term, other than painters of the American Southwest, but I think they, and a few others, could be considered to represent a genre of painting comparable to genres like California Impressionism or the Boston School.
