The work of Baltimore artist, jewelry maker, sculptor and winner of the 2016 MacArthur Foundation Grant, Joyce J. Scott, will be featured in the exhibition, “Politically Speaking: New American Ideals in Contemporary Jewelry” at the Craft in America Center, through Nov. 5.
According to the Center, her work repositions craft by using beadwork as “a potent platform for commentary on social and political injustices. Scott upends conceptions of beadwork and jewelry as domestic or merely for adornment by creating exquisitely crafted objects that reveal, upon closer examination, stark representations of racism and sexism and the violence they engender.”
The Craft in America Center is located at 8415 W. Third Street, two blocks east of La Cienega Boulevard and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 12 – 6 p.m. For more information, call (323)951-0610, or visit craftinamerica.org.
