Once again this month we’ll be displaying watercolors by local artist, Glenn Brewer. Glenn majored in art at the University of Washington, studying sculpture with George Tsutakawa, as well as painting, printmaking, and jewelry design with other local artists. His primary interest was in sculpture and three-dimensional design, but life eventually led him to a career in architecture, where he worked for 42 years. He is now retired, and can devote his time to the art that he has always loved. Although he had always thought of himself more as a sculptor, it is painting that he focusses on today. We are displaying a number of his works this month—mostly landscapes but also, appropriately enough, a rendition of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. Glenn says, “My interest in subject matter, techniques, and style, are still evolving. I try may different approaches in order to find who I am as a painter. It’s still too early to know.”
The theme for our free wine tasting this Thursday, which coincides with Art Walk night, is “French wines for the holidays.” Think sparkling wine, reds and whites for holiday meals and parties and, of course, dessert. Come in between 5:30 and 9:00 and get some holiday inspiration, while you enjoy the artwork of Glenn Brewer. He won’t be joining us this time, as he just had heart surgery, but you can raise a taste of wine to his speedy recovery!
