Gladys M. Nilsson is an American artist, one of the original Chicago Imagists, a group in the 1960s and 1970s who turned to representational art. Her paintings "set forth a surreal mixture of fantasy and domesticity in a continuous parade of chaotic images." She is married to fellow-artist and Hairy Who member Jim Nutt. Hairy Who is based on a group show at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago. She and Nutt moved to Sacramento, CA in 1969 where he was an assistant professor of art at Sacramento State College. In 1973, Nilsson was the first Hairy Who member to have a solo show, at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
