Ms. Cherri Lakey, co-founder of Anno Domini gallery, never ever had the opportunity to meet the artist Mr. Zack Luchetti, an educator and artist who was born and raised in Oakland and was studying under the guidance of illustrator Barron Storey at San Jose State. The work he created was so inspiring that Lakey and her co-founder, Mr. Brian Eder, decided to produce a tribute show in his memory during this week’s South First Fridays street art event that will take place in downtown San Jose. However, Luchetti will not be able to be present at the show. He was a senior citizen when he succumbed to colon cancer as he was living in Murphys where he was an instructor.
In the year 2000, Anno Domini held a retrospective of work by Storey dating to his “golden years” and Cathy Luchetti, Zack’s mother was present in recognition of Zack’s respect for his teacher. The gallery asked her on S. First St. whether they’d be interested in displaying her son’s work. Lakey told her that submissions were not the best fit for every gallery. The work was amazing. Lakey said that Zack’s distinctive view of nature and humankind, along with his work in the BART Station, as well as other places, makes Zack’s work different from other.
It was an impressive performance. This show is named after an illustration of Luchetti who is a primary teacher that illuminates wolves through the use of a lightbulb. This symbolises Luchetti’s efforts to educate his students. Luchetti is aware of the commonalities between his work that is vivid and also those depicted by Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera and other surrealists. The amalgamation is new to him. “They appear to be very complicated,” stated Lakey. His art has many layers of significance. These were the paintings that truly stirred my heart.
