Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Glenn studied art and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. These formative years had a significant influence on his artistic development and creative tastes, eventually resulting in a move to Cleveland, Ohio and the beginning of Glenn’s artistic career. After devoting many years as an Art Director in advertising, his long-time interest in printmaking and desire for personal expression led him to Washington DC, where he continued to develop his unique silk-screening technique at both the Corcoran School of Art and the Torpedo Factory’s Art League.
Sharing studio space with three other artists at Studio 14 North West, Glenn is pursuing his journey into the world of silk-screening independently - outside of the classroom and outside of the advertising industry. His creative methods, use of vibrant colors, text and images, and a wide-range of subject matter has taken an age-old process and reaffirmed it as an art form that is both decorative and captivating. As a result, his inescapable imagery is gaining the attention of many enthusiasts. Glenn Fry is a member of Mid City Artists. Glenn is also featured as a local artist in the 2006 Washington Project for the Arts / Corcoran Artist’s Directory.
