Grounded: William Bailey

Check gallery website for hours and additional info

The prints on view in our current group exhibition encourage a sense of grounding, which involves being present in the moment and being intentional in thoughts and actions. By grounding ourselves, we can move forward into 2021 despite setbacks. Grounded is on view in our gallery until February 25.

William Bailey was born in Iowa in 1930. From 1948 to 1951, he studied art at the University of Kansas but left school before graduating to enlist in the Army. After serving in Korea and Japan, he returned to the United States and enrolled in the Yale School of Art, where he studied under Josef Albers. Bailey earned a BFA in 1955 and an MFA in 1957 and was a professor of art at Yale from 1969 to 1995. In 1972, he bought a house in Umbria, Italy, and spent most summers there for the rest of his life. He died in 2020.
