Glenn Bernstein

Native New Yorker, Glenn Bernstein, trained with conceptual artist Ted Stamm and Andrew Reiss at the Brooklyn Museum Art School for over a decade; his area of study was oil painting and figure drawing. He interned with French-born artist Jean-Jacques Duval, a pioneer in stained glass design and abstract expressionism, and with Judaic artist Fred Spinowitz. Bernstein received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from City University of New York at Brooklyn College, having majored in Art History and Biology. His next five years were spent pursuing a medical degree abroad. On his return, Bernstein continued his artistic pursuits both personally, and publicly as an active member of American Physicians Art Association. He served on the governing boards of the Strand Theater in Lakewood, New Jersey, and the Sweetwater Valley Citizens for the Arts Association, Sweetwater, Tennessee. By invitation, he participated in numerous group shows during his medical career, including one at the Morani Gallery in Philadelphia, at New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and in Atlanta. Bernstein has written two novels that probe the physician as artist and artist as physician. He continues to make provocative art.
