Sally Glanville came to Canada in 1969 via The Netherlands, where she lived with her husband for 3 years. They settled near Dundas in a farmhouse which they renovated. Sally worked in a studio attached to the house creating screen process prints. She subsequently joined the Open Studio in Toronto, which is a printmakers cooperative in 1985. There she worked for three years, and then decided to rent a studio space of her own near Open Studio on Niagara Street. During this period, which was the mid to late 1980s she divided her time between teaching at various post-secondary institutions and making large scale drawings in her studio. She studied digital programs and found employment as a layout artist in the field of advertising, while continuing her teaching and fine art activities. IN 1996 she moved to Ohio where she lived and worked in publishing for 4 years, returning to Canada in July of 2001. Since that time she has lived in Toronto pursuing her art career as well as her teaching activities. She currently lives in London, Ontario; a city which she has discovered has its own special flavour of art and artists. The works on display here are the fruits of the time since Sally has returned to Canada. She continues to work on paper creating mixed media works; and also combining drawn and photographic content in photo collage works.
