“Fierce Generosity” Exhibition and Opening Weekend featured in Wallpaper

In his article for Wallpaper “Art angel: Porch Gallery opens an inaugural group show in honour of Carolyn GlasoeBailey” Michael Slenske writes:

“Though it doesn’t translate exactly into English, the Finnish word sisu might be the best way to describe the late Minnesota-born gallerist, curator and art advisor Carolyn GlasoeBailey. ‘Sisu means stoic, determination, grit, bravery, guts, resilience and heartiness, expressing the historic self-identified Finnish national character,’ says Lila Glasoe Francese, Carolyn’s sister, reading from a Wikipedia listing on her iPhone. She’s sitting in the parlor room of Ojai’s Thacher House bed and breakfast, at the VIP dinner inaugurating the Carolyn GlasoeBailey Foundation, of which Glasoe Francese is president. ‘They say that Finnish women have sisu and she did.’ “
