It is with great sorrow that the Newington-Cropsey Cultural Studies Center notes the passing of Gail Leggio on August 26, 2016. A former Fullbright Scholar and Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of Virginia, Gail had been contributing to our journal, American Arts Quarterly, for over twenty-five years as associate editor and writer. She also wrote essays for The Architectural Capriccio (Ashgate, 2014) and The Re-Emergence of Realism (forthcoming), as well as individual artists' catalogues. She is survived by her husband James Leggio, and will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Her colleagues in the art world will remember her as a both brilliant scholar and critic and a most open-hearted friend.
