The opening reception takes place on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Art Works Gallery, in Cedar City, Utah. In addition, this will also be the second Final Friday Art Walk. Gary Fenske is a regular gallery artist, but we will be highlighting his work during the month of August.
About Gary Fenske
Gary Fenske is well known around the world as the pioneer of luminism.
His invisible, or “Night Visions”® art is mysterious.
On what appears to be a blank white canvas, his fine art paintings hide, until illuminated, waiting to surprise the unsuspecting viewer.
Fenske first encountered luminous fine art in 1958. It filled him with amazement and changed his life forever.
It’s still a thrill when he sees others experience luminism for the first time.
A well-known gallery figure in Japan, he was the first American artist to show his work at the Nagoya Shogun Castle. Additionally, his work is found in collections world-wide.
