Glackens Artwork is currently on view at The Parrish Museum in Long Island. The exhibition is an essential experience for anyone fond of Glacken's Artwork. He was clearly an artist who embraced his moment in time and his travels.The artists focus of strong color effects and vibrant color reflect his emotions, his paintings weren't meant to closely mimic nature, but to use what ever colors necessary to express an emotion or feeling. His choice of color indicating his work was a celebration of life.
