Text is drawn from “The Abridged Walmsley: Selections from the Career of William Aubrey Walmsley.” Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts, 1999.

In 2002, the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts, in recognition of the splendid donation of artworks by Bill and his beloved wife Dorothy, named a Gallery in his honor. Although we know Professor Walmsley as a much-honored printmaker, he actually began as a painter only to re-invent his career in 1962 when he founded the print studio at Florida State University; he retired from the University in 1989 as an Emeritus Professor.

From Florida, where he was awarded an Arts Council Fellowship in 1980 for his lithographs, Professor Walmsley was recognized for excellence by the print world and honored in New Orleans in 2002 as a past President and Emeritus Printmaker of the Southern Graphics Council.
