Blending popular culture with her ancestry, Joyce Scott creates provocative and confrontational works of art that address contentious political and social issues such as gender, race, and class struggle. Well-versed in a variety of mediums, Scott draws from influences as wide ranging as her media. Renowned for her meticulous craftsmanship and biting social commentary, Scott gravitates to beadwork for its improvisational properties and immediacy. During her residency, Scott will combine beadwork with stained and fused glass to create complex objects of skill, beauty, and sophistication that double as a social mirror. Joyce received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and her MFA from the Institute Allende in Mexico. Scott has exhibited her work extensively throughout the United States and is featured in many prominent collections including the Smithsonian Institute and the Museum of Art and Design in New York.
*Joyce Scott’s residency is sponsored in part through the generosity of Ms. Debra Plousha Moore and Col. John Moore, Jr., USAF.
