"Only two posters are known by Glenny. One for the women's edition of the Buffalo Courier, another for the 1897 exhibition of Buffalo Fine Art Academy and Society of Artists. Both are among the most beautifully printed American posters of the 1890's. These designs have the cool, classical frontality that could be at home in one of McKim, Mead and White's classical revival buildings or at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Glenny's drawing is firm and assured, and her feeling for colour is unmatched. She trained as a painter in New York and Paris and specialized in murals"(Lauder p.187)
