Artist of the Month

Joyce J. Scott

A forceful combination of historian, narrator and maker, nothing is off limits for Joyce J. Scott. She uses an unexpectedly heterogeneous array of materials – glass beads, hand blown glass, appropriated African sculptures and masks, found objects – skillfully combining them into narrative sculptures. The work is rich in color and texture, and powerful in its imagery.

About Joyce J. Scott

Joyce J. Scott’s performances, lectures and exhibitions have played an important role in creating visibility for artists of color in the United States and Europe for more than 45 years. A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Scott lives with her 93 year-old mother, Elizabeth T. Scott, herself part of a distinguished group of artists such as Faith Ringgold who were early innovators in using the language of traditional African- American quilt-making as a contemporary art medium.
