About Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Study Collection
The core of the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation is a collection of sculpture, painting, photography, works on paper, and editions inherited from the private collection of Carolyn Glasoe Bailey. Works included represent many of the artists she championed throughout her career, as well as gifts by artists and supporters of the foundation in order to augment the collection in representative ways. The Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Study Collection is intended to be available for public exhibition, with works loaned to education and health-focused institutions throughout the Tri-County region.
Based in Ojai, California, the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation’s mission is to support the arts and educate the public on supporting emerging artists.
Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 2015 by artists, family, and friends to celebrate the legacy of esteemed art patron and private art dealer Carolyn Glasoe Bailey. Currently based in Ojai, California, the organization is committed to supporting the arts and sciences, and educating the public about the importance of continuing support for the arts and sciences. Current initiatives include unrestricted cash grants for artists, funding for education initiatives, as well as a residency program in Ojai, consisting of a series of exhibition projects, public programs, and a podcast conversation series available on iTunes.
Carolyn served as the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara’s Board President for many years, and we are ecstatic to have her foundation’s support through our partnership and gallery in our hotel. Join us in our alternative art space at our contemporary hotel!
