A talk with metal artist Jaydan Moore
Saturday, March 4, 2017, 4pm
Craft in America Center
Current Penland Resident and metal artist Jaydan Moore will give a talk at the Craft in America Center regarding his work, background and recent inspiration. Moore dissects metal objects, altering their form, and then piecing them into commemorative wares that leave evidence of their past incarnations.
His career began as an undergraduate student at California College of the Arts and he received his MFA and MA from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Jaydan has furthered his career through opportunities as an artist in residence at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Fountainhead Fellow at Virginia Commonwealth Universities Craft/Material Studies Program, and a grant from the Peter S. Reed Foundation. He has shown in recent exhibitions at Cheongju Craft Biennale (South Korea), Museum of Craft and Design (CA), Racine Art Museum (WI), Fuller Craft Museum (MA), and the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design (NC). He has also held teaching appointments at Rhode Island School of Design, Virginia Commonwealth University in the Craft Materials Studies Program and Penland School of Crafts.
Jaydan was awarded the inaugural Emerging Voices Award from the American Craft Council and received a North Carolina Arts Fellowship. He currently is finishing a three-year residency at Penland and he will reflect on experiences at the school. During his last year, he is creating new work for upcoming exhibitions and he will give us a taste of what he is envisioning and generating.
