Guy Palazzola was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Italian immigrant parents in 1919. He received a diploma (1940) in painting from the Art School of Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, where he studied under Sarkis Sarkisian and John Carroll. He joined DSAC staff in 1942, serving as assistant director from 1950 until 1957. In 1958 he was appointed to the faculty at the University of Michigan. Palazzola also taught at the Crystal Lake Summer Art School and was well known throughout Michigan for his lectures and demonstrations to amateur groups. He gained an even wider audience through his hosting of several University of Michigan educational television series, including "Meet the Masters," "The Painters Art," and "Painting with Palazzola". Totaling over 100 TV programs, these series have been seen on public TV stations throughout the United States. A painter of great technical competence, Palazzola worked in a variety of styles. In 1975 Palazzola received the University of Michigan's Distinguished Faculty Award.
