Fine art was the essence of Bernard O. Gruenke’s life for more than eight decades, keeping him close to the image and the imagination of the Creator.
It was also a precious gift that he shared, nurtured and supported in countless others who have been inspired by his passionate artistic spirit and his enduring faith in both God and humanity.
