Eat, Drink, & Art; Gallery Preview Event & Mixer
Enjoy fine wine, amazing food, and incredible art at Gallery Bar on Friday August 22nd. Aharon Gluska is having his 1st Exhibition in Chicago in spring 2015. Mix & Mingle Chicago is hosting a HUGE event where you can eat, drink, and get a sneak peak at his incredible work.
About Aharon Gluska: Israeli artist Aharon Gluska was born in Hadera, Israel and currently resides in New York. Gluska made a name for himself in the art community with his moving work of faces of victims of the Holocaust. The images appear to suggest faces appearing from a mist or from time past, as if midway between absence and presence, in and out of the memory of the viewer. Gluska’s most recent work of abstract landscape can easily be confused for a photograph. The intricate detail in his oil paintings is produced using a water based technique that took Aharon over 15 years to develop.
