Artist Spotlight: Glenn Priestley

Originally from Toronto, artist Glenn Priestley spent his formative years in Scarborough, Ontario, where he attended the Vocational Arts Program at Cedarbrae Collegiate Institute and graduated from the Ontario College of Fine Arts Programme. He has since taught drawing and painting at numerous institutions, most notably in the drawing and painting department at the Ontario College of Art (now OCAD) from 1989 through 1996, when he left Ontario and moved with his family to Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Over the years, Priestley has been represented by several galleries and participated in numerous individual and group exhibitions. His work has been the focus of two museum surveys: The View from Tabor Hill, organized by the University of Waterloo Art Gallery which traveled to the Art Gallery of Windsor, and Glenn Priestley: Variations, at The Beaverbrook Art Gallery.
