Glenn “Fuzz” Corey: 50 Years an Artist

Capturing the story of this artist in a one month art show doesn’t quite do him justice. Glenn “Fuzz” Corey has a long history of teaching, awards and exhibitions. His education includes degrees here at Wayne State BFA, University of North Carolina MA, and Strasbourg, France MFA. His teaching includes Center For Creative Studies, Detroit, U of M, Flint and Blue Lake Fine Arts, MI. Likely the many tennis and golf awards and sport teaching experiences have added to his depth in art expression.

Glenn’s Artist statement: “There are two major trends in the art of the last hundred years: expression and reference. For my part, even though some of my works, especially my pastel pieces, have expressive techniques in them, reference plays the major role. Much of the work looks back to the mythology and other subjects that have been depicted by other artists of the past.

A portrait has a heritage of all other portraits painted before it. Sometimes the new portrait reflects back to what other painters have done; a landscape to the tradition of other landscapes. My work often refers back to those traditions.

The poet Charles Baudelaire, in the 19th century, sought a painter of modern life. In much of my work I try to take themes and images of the past and make them more contemporary to try to satisfy the 21st century Baudelaire.”

Opening Reception: 2-4:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 4.
