Gordon Cook: Prime Printmaker & Poetic Painter
In the Side Gallery space ArtZone exhibits a reprise of paintings and prints by Gordon Cook (1927 – 1985); on this occasion the works will be offered at reduced prices. Cook was a master printmaker who later took up painting and today is known for both. He has been called the Bay Area Georgio Morandi (1890 – 1964), an Italian painter known for his economic use of color, value and surface. Cook became a painter who translated the everyday into elegant and is revered as a “painter’s painter”.
Gordon Cook represents a link between the new, expanded artists roster and ArtZone’s roots, the Campbell Gallery. That program emphasized representational, objective oil painters, i.e. Bay Area Figurative and occasionally, Bay Area Abstract Expressionists.
Opening Reception Saturday February 1, 5:00 – 8:00 pm
Gallery Hours: 12-6 pm Wednesday-Sunday, occasional evenings and anytime by appointment
