Carolyn Glasoe started her career at the age of 19 when she opened her first art gallery in her hometown of Minneapolis. In 2000, she moved to New York where she co-founded the Dee Glasoe Gallery in the Chelsea Art District. In 2002 Glasoe left New York, returning to her home base of Ojai to concentrate on curating private art collections for her clientele worldwide. Glasoe’s life ended at the young age of 46 after a year and a half battle with Glioblastoma brain cancer. She was mother to a beautiful nine-year-old boy Matson West Bailey and wife to entrepreneur Chris Bailey. The CGB Foundation was established in 2016 by Lila Glasoe Francese, Glasoe’s sister, and Chris Bailey, Glasoe’s widower, with the objective to continue Glasoe’s commitment to the arts and sciences. In a collaboration between CGB Foundation and Porch Gallery, “Fierce Generosity” is being held in Carolyn’s honor and includes many of the artists she helped over the years, including me. The drawing below is my contribution to the show.
