Quincy University’s Gray Gallery, located in Brenner Library, will host the art exhibition “The Legacy of Glenn Bradshaw”, featuring works by the late Glenn Bradshaw. This exhibition will take place from November 12 through December 12 and will include his modernist collages, created from pieces of earlier casein works on rice paper. This exhibit is free and open to the public.
Bradshaw continued to make art until he passed away at the age of 91 in late March 2013. Bradshaw taught at the University of Illinois from 1952-1986, attaining the designation of emeritus of art. He was a master watercolorist and led master classes, notably the Springmaid Beach Watercolor Workshop in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Over his long career, Bradshaw showed his work frequently at the national and international levels. His resume lists numerous prizes, among them the Whitaker Prize in 1996 and 2001 from the National Academy of Design in New York. His works also belong to the permanent collections of various museum, institutions and corporations, including the National Watercolor Society Collection and the San Diego Museum of Art. Bradshaw was the recipient of the Watercolor USA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000.
