Michigan loves Marcus Glenn

 In Art & Gallery News, In the News, Marcus Glenn

Senator Victor Gregory with Marcus Glenn at Park West GallerySince being named the official artist for the 2014 Grammy awards, Marcus Glenn has been feeling the love locally as city, county and state leaders have offered him certified kudos in the form of proclamations, presentations, certificates, tributes and formal letters.

Senator Victor Gregory came by Park West Gallery yesterday to present this tribute from the State of Michigan.

The artist was featured in the Oakland Press one day and the next day stood in the Oakland County Commissioner’s Auditorium and accepted an award for his contribution to the culture and richness of the community.

Marcus is the first to say it’s been fun. “It’s nice receiving recognition from my community,” he says.

Even for an artist whose work is collected worldwide, accolades from his neighbors have a very personal appeal.  Marcus graciously thanked God, the community, Park West Gallery and, of course, his wife, Yolanda.

He told Oakland Press reporter Nichole Robertson that he also always appreciates the love his collectors show. “When you work with a big gallery and your works are in demand, you have to maintain the quality,” he said. “Working with clients who appreciate your work, you want to make sure that you give them the best.”

Take a look at his trip to Los Angeles for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

    We purchased our Marcus Glenn at a Park West gathering in Florida. It’s a women dancing “carefree” and reminded me of my wife’s love for life. We had a chance to visit with Marcus and his wife, both “down to earth” people.

    Marcus, you’ve been an inspiration and an influence on my own art as well as the hundreds of students I’ve taught. Thanks for your talent and uniqueness – there ain’t no other artist quite like you.

    I have just received one of Marcus Glen’s art works from parkwestgallery from my cruise with Carnival. Steven Josh and the two beautiful girls were so helpful and I am hooked on the art works. Thank you health happiness and great inspirations for the future.
