Wisconsin native and Master Printmaker Raymond Gloeckler received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the University of Wisconsin. From 1961 to 1993, he was professor of art at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Best known for his wood block prints, his works often incorporate animals as representations of people.
In All My Friends Are Over Fifty,Gloeckler acknowledges the stereotypes associated with aging and mid-life challenges by portraying himself as a warthog; a creature not often appreciated for its aesthetic beauty.
