Ken Luce Description

KEN LUCE (b. 1950)

Ken Luce was born in 1950 in Houston, Texas. Developing into a true Texas art, even in his youth, Luce pursued his artistic passion and earned both his bachelor and master’s degrees in fine arts from the University of Houston.

Luce began showing his works to great success; during his career he held many one man and group exhibitions and has been represented by a variety of galleries in America and Europe. In the 1970’s he worked with the DuBose Gallery in Houston and the David Findley Gallery in New York and in the 1980’s caught the attention of Eugene Binder Gallery both in Dallas and Cologne, Germany as well as Davis McClain in Houston.

In addition to success in his various exhibitions, Luce has also chaired the San Jacinto College North art department for twenty five years and recently received an honorarium for presenting a large painting of Pope John Paul II at the El Paso Art Museum. His work remains in the museum as well as in the permanent collection of the Menil Collection in Houston.
