SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The George Krevsky Gallery announced that they have been selected to represent the estate of Gordon Cook. A well respected Bay Area Figurative artist, Cook was a close friend and peer of Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Elmer Bischoff, Manuel Neri, and Wayne Thiebaud, before his untimely death in 1985. Born in Chicago, Cook earned a BFA from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1950, before moving to San Francisco in 1951.

Two major shows have been scheduled in March which are the first solo exhibitions of the artist's work in several years. The First entitled, "Gordon Cook: Paintings, Works on Paper, and Sculpture," opens at the George Krevsky Gallery, Thursday, March 4, 2010, and continues through May 1, 2010. The second entitled, "Gordon Cook: A Retrospective," opens at the Bolinas Museum on Saturday, March 13, 2010, and continues through April 25, 2010, curated by Barbara Janeff.

An active member of the Dolphin Club, much of Cook's artwork reflected views of the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento River Delta. His figurative representation of water tanks and domestic icons appear in many private and corporate collections across the country. With a whimsical eye and magical hand, often contemplative, and sometimes ominous, his artwork is as poignant today as the era in which it was created. The George Krevsky Gallery is pleased to focus a spotlight on this artist's legacy so a new generation can appreciate the gifts of his muse.

Throughout his career he taught at the San Francisco Art Institute, UC Davis, and the California College of Arts & Crafts. From 1973 to 1985 Cook was represented by and exhibited actively at the Charles Campbell Gallery in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. He also had solo shows in New York at the Allan Stone Gallery, Forum Gallery, and Schmidt - Bingham Gallery, Pamela Auchincloss Gallery in Santa Barbara, Smith - Anderson in Palo Alto, Asher - Faure Gallery in Los Angeles, and Bryce Bannatyne Gallery in Santa Monica.

Gordon Cook is included in several major collections including the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Oakland Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC.
