Bruce McGrew Biography


Bruce McGrew was a Professor Emeritus of Art at the University of Arizona, where he taught from 1966 until his death in 1999.  His home base was the art community he helped found, Rancho Linda Vista in Oracle, Arizona.  From there, he traveled the world giving lectures, workshops and painting.  His watercolors especially express the light and space of the landscape in which he painted. He characterized one of his guiding intentions as “space that retreats, light that advances, and a third mysterious thing that happens between them.”
