We are sad to share the news the artist Eric Bransby died yesterday at his home in Colorado Springs. In 2015 (at age 99!) Eric went on a grand tour of Kansas to arrive at the Gallery in time to give a spell-binding artist talk for the opening of his and his late wife Mary Ann Hemmie Bransby (1920-2011) exhibition. We were proud to have facilitated the documentary about his life that premiered this past spring, “Art for the People: Eric Bransby, American Mural Artist

We are saddened to learn of the passing of renowned artist Eric Bransby, known for his dozens of extraordinary murals in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Utah. Eric studied under Boardman Robinson and Jean Charlot at the Broadmoor Art Academy (which became the Fine Arts Center’s Bemis School of Art), where he later taught. He was commissioned to devise a mural in celebration of the Fine Arts Center’s 75th anniversary in 2012. Created over the course of nearly two years, the mural depicts aspects of the visual arts, performing arts, and arts education.
Yesterday we lost a great human being, and a true canon in art. Eric James Bransby was, and is, the most profound influence I’ve ever experienced, and our bond undoubtedly shaped the trajectory of who I was to become in life. I have much more to say about this loss and a world without Bransby. For now, I have enormous sadness. I will simply say, “Eric, I love you. We unwind as we are wound. Thank you for winding me how only you could. We will always be inseparably connected by bonds that stretch the paths of time. I will miss you.”
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
