Opening Reception: Sunday June 4th 2-4:30 pm

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
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
