About the Artist:

Born in Toledo, Ohio, the first “sculptures” of Al Glann were fanciful creations on the family farm in central Ohio, more for entertainment of this youngest child than, for artistic expression. Formal art training began in college where he graduated from the Columbus College of Art & Design with a 1973 BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration. Although he worked as a commercial designer and illustrator, Glann’s passion was in the creation of dimensional constructs and painting, composite relief, casting, wire sculpture, wood and metal. Inspired by painters as El Greco, Miro and Mondrian and sculptors like Henry Moore, Naum Gabo and Calder, he was able to incorporate this passion into his work as an Associate Professor, teaching 3-D classes at his Alma Mater.
