Mike Glier

24 Aug – 22 Sep 2019

Mike Glier will be in residence at the Maltings studios in Bruton in September 2019, and in January and May 2020 respectively.

Glier uses painting and drawing to explore topics of common interest. He also teaches, which he considers to be a part of his creative output. Masculinity, consumerism, and conflict were subjects for much of his early work. For the last two decades, however, he has focused on the human relationship with the environment. The artist states, “My landscape projects are propelled by a number of things, including the love of paint and abstraction, but most importantly, by a desire to do my part to help make the changes in philosophy that are required if humanity is to create a sustainable future. By studying the land and responding to it freshly, I hope to demonstrate attachment, respect and engagement. And if the paintings are good enough, they will find their way into public life to do their job of representing the joy of living in the world and the wonder of perceiving it, and if they succeed at this, to evoke the will to create balance within it.”

Solo exhibitions of Mike’s drawing and painting have been presented at a variety of public and private institutions including Barbara Krakow Gallery, Boston; Gerald Peters Gallery, NY and Santa Fe; The Kitchen, New York; Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Chicago; Barbara Gladstone Gallery, New York; Galerie Tanja Grunert, Cologne; The Cambridge Arts Council Gallery 344, Boston; San Jose Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art, NY.

Born in Kentucky, Mike Glier studied psychology and art at Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts before attending the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. An advisee of Robert Morris, Glier received an MA from Hunter College. He is also a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in painting and the New England recipient of Awards in the Visual Arts 9.

He lives and works in Hoosick Falls, New York.

Mike Glier has previously been artist-in-residence July–August 2017.
