On Sunday, friends and family members gathered in a Glendale office building to pay tribute to a La Cañada resident, artist and teacher whose work helped shape 20th century Western Art. Larry Gluck, who’d turned 80 the day before, was feted with a birthday celebration and a special showing of his life’s works. Many paintings on display were watercolors reflecting the 10 years the he and wife Sheila lived in St. Thomas in the 1960s. Other canvases showed the faint outline of ethereal nudes barely visible through a solid block of color, a style Gluck termed “mirage d’esprit,” while still others showed the artist’s penchant for portraiture.

I am a former resident of La Cañada Flintridge and a 1989 graduate of LCHS. I had the privilege of being taught by Karen Mealiffe all four years of high school in the advanced art program. I went on to Loyola Marymount University, where I earned a degree in art history in 1993. During my time at LCHS, I had the honor of painting a mural with a fellow classmate. Words cannot even describe my horror in Principal Leininger's actions to paint over the 20 years worth of murals at the school.

Artist Ron Schmidtling has gathered his pen and ink portraits into an exhibit he titled “48 Goddesses.” The project began during an art workshop Schmidtling was taking at the Getty Museum.

Capt. Clark extended his hand. “Take a seat left-tenant,” he said. I did, opposite him on an 81-Mike-Mike ammo crate. He brought me up to speed on enemy movements, their strength, weaponry and combat readiness. We were operating 20 clicks from Phouc Tuy, and the intelligence would prove to be fortuitous. With devilish good looks, Clark was an image from a Kipling novel. He was an Aussie, SAS (Strategic Air Service). The Viet Cong called them ma rung , phantoms of the jungle.
