August 22 - September 21
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 22 from 5:00 - 7:00pm
Influenced by the Brandywine Tradition, George Van Hook thinks of his paintings as primarily a visual response to the selected environment,
be it landscape, figure or still life. "I want the color to be beautiful and the drawing firm and secure," he says.
The paintings are a marriage of external and internal forces- what emerges on the canvas should be a reflection of both
the beauty of the world and the artist's most inner response.
An opening reception will be held Thursday, August 22nd from 5:00 - 7:00pm at Lily Pad Gallery West,
located at 215 N Broadway Street, Milwaukee, WI 53202. George Van hook will be present,
conducting painting demonstrations and will be available for conversation and discussion.
