He served in the US Army Air Corps during WWII, after which he obtained his bachelor's degree at the University of Denver. After working with artist/professor Carl Fracassini in Denver, Al followed his mentor to the University of Iowa, where he earned his MFA and met his wife, Lou.
Al Wynne’s work has been featured in major exhibitions from Colorado to Washington D.C., south to Texas and north to Alaska. His work has been presented in both individual and group shows. Paintings, calligraphy, and sculptures are held in museums and in private collections around the world. Al was listed in Who’s Who in American Art starting in 1959.
