The world of symbolic images is alive with vibrant potency.I choose to work with the basic shapes of circles and squares or Ensos, Mandalas, Brahmandas and Pujas. Endless variations are possible by combining them and arranging their relationship.It is my intension that my work offers people a sense of solace and repose in their busy lives.
-Jeffrey Jon Gluck
Landscapes in Red
Landscapes usually incorporate elements of Sky, land and or water. The colors are typically those that we see outside every day. Unlike the real world, the abstract landscape in this show are primarily red. Red, the color of passion, heat and beauty, brings an unusual energy to the paintings. While the paintings are generally dark, the energy emerges as a fiery luminance from within the works.
Fur, Fangs, and Feathers: Vietnam’s Tet Animals
7 February 2013 – 4 March 2013 | Exhibition Opening February 7, 2013 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm Exhibition continues through March 4, 2012
In Asia, each Lunar New Year is represented by one of twelve animals. Legend says that on the occasion of his birthday, the Jade Emperor of China arranged a contest for all the animals to see which animal could cross a swift river first. The order in which the animals accomplished this determined their placement in the order of lunar years.
This exhibition depicts the legendary twelve animals in paintings and prints by many of Vietnam’s most respected artists including: Dang Xuan Hoa, Dinh Thi Tham Poong, Hong Viet Dung, Le Quoc Viet, Nguyen Tu Nghiem, Pham Binh Chuong, Phan Cam Thuong, Trinh Quoc Chien and others. In a variety of styles and mediums, the artists portray the spender, prowess, and humor of the animals of the Lunar New Year. Vietnam instituted a substitution for the Year of the Rabbit. Finding the rabbit an insignificant creature, they replaced it with a cat—to their thinking, a far more important animal.
Attributes have been ascribed to those people born in the years of each of the twelve animals. Many find it entertaining or auspicious to match family and friends to the animals designated to the year of their birth—finding a match or an incorrect description. Enjoy the animals as works of art and as representatives of legend.

“I love saturated colors, muted grays, texture and generous amounts of paint. I try to surprise even myself!
No two paintings are ever, ever alike.
I hope that the paintings resonate with the viewer in the way that music can resonate and thrill.” - Patricia Sherwood
