The works of painter Anthony Askew will be on display for the first time in Glendale since he left the city in 1971 at Tufenkian Fine Arts through April 12. The exhibit is titled “Looking Back/Going Forward."
Born and raised in Glendale, Askew, now based in Santa Barbara, creates large-scale abstract watercolors, prints and assemblages that explore themes of color and formal relationships, according to gallery officials.
The collage works use scavenged materials Askew has collected for decades. He reconfigures found objects and text into playful assemblages, gallery officials said.
