Los Angeles

Donald LeWallen and Dennis Ashbaugh

Jack Glenn Gallery

Late last spring, Jack Glenn, a businessman transplanted from Kansas City, opened his gallery in Corona del Mar, a sun, fun and surf community south of Los Angeles. Eschewing La Cienega Boulevard as too smoggy and about to be bisected by a freeway, Glenn felt that anyone wishing to buy the sort of art he handles wouldn’t mind the hour’s drive from Los Angeles. Glenn’s Gallery is a bit of chic appreciated by the California south of Los Angeles—hip deep gray carpet-ing and beige suede cloth on the walls to which pictures are attached by Velcro strips. Esthetically, the gallery has the flavor of O.K. Harris West at times, although it must be said that Glenn looks at the work of almost as many artists as Ivan Karp, and Glenn handles a number of Los Angeles area artists, among them, Jerrold Burchman, J. J. Chicago, Dennis Ashbaugh and Allan McCollum.
