ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jean Bronson Galli is a visual artist in Seattle, WA and is a resident artist at Inscape Arts. She is previously from New Haven, CT, where she was active in the Connecticut Women Artists’ community.
Jean is currently working on a Wildlife series of endangered animals. Wildlife conservation has been a passion for years. Her use of mixed media on this project is a unique style that allows her to capture sharp details and subtle nuances in their faces, colors, patterns, and textures to make them come alive.
Prior to her Seattle relocation Jean actively participated in exhibitions and received many accolades for her work.
Jean received acclaim for her portraits in both regional and national juried exhibitions. In 2013 and 2014, Jean’s portrait painting and monotype were accepted into the New Britain Museum of American Art’s Members Juried Exhibition. In 2011, she was invited to show her portrait and a wildlife painting at the Six Summit Gallery, Ivoryton, CT. Jean has her work in private collections throughout the country.
Ms. Galli is the recipient of several awards and recognition for her work. In 2008, she won juror Daniel Greene’s Juror Award for her painting "Mirrors" — The Portrait, New Haven Brush and Palette Club Juried Exhibition. She won the prestigious Connecticut Women Artists’ Council Award, in 2005, for three of her portrait paintings — CWA’s 77th Annual Open Juried Exhibition.
She was a member of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, New Haven ArtSpace’s City-Wide Open Studios, Guilford Art Center and City Lights Gallery. Jean was Vice President of Connecticut Women Artists, Inc., an organization of over 225 elected members, for 4 years. And, she was Show Chair and Co-chair of CWA’s 2012, 2013 and 2014 National Open Juried Exhibition, held at the Converse Gallery, Slater Memorial Museum in Norwich, CT. These exhibitions were the first times CWA opened submission to women across the country.
