Santa Barbara Independent: Carolyn GlasoeBailey Memorial Exhibit at Porch ‘Fierce Generosity’ Celebrates Life of Art Dealer GlasoeBailey

Posted on Posted in Foundation News, Press
AN HOMAGE: Alec Soth’s photo “Brittany, France, 2007” (above) is just one of the pieces by various artists in the show Fierce Generosity, a memorial to Carolyn GlasoeBailey, who was known for forwarding the careers of emerging and mid-career visual artists.

While you may not immediately recognize her name, if you follow contemporary art in Santa Barbara, you’ve felt the influence of the late Carolyn GlasoeBailey, the art dealer and former Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) board chair who died in November 2015 after battling glioblastoma brain cancer. GlasoeBailey was only 46 when she died, and she leaves behind not only her husband, Chris Bailey, but also her 9-year-old son, Matson West Bailey, and many friends, artists, and clients who will miss her vitality, self-assurance, and aesthetic judgment very much. As part of the process of grieving for a woman who was by all accounts an extraordinarily positive force in the contemporary art world, and as a way of moving forward with her legacy, her family has established a foundation in her honor. This exhibit, Fierce Generosity at Porch Gallery in Ojai, continues GlasoeBailey’s work in forwarding the careers of emerging and mid-career artists, and fulfills her wish that this work be carried on after her passing. -Continue Reading on Santa Barbara Independent
