The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild is proud to present Sacred Structures, a two-person exhibition of works by Tony Moore and Kenro Izu, curated by Osi Audu. The two artists investigate the architectonic form in their respective mediums, Tony Moore with sculpture, and Kenro Izu with photography.

The notion of house as shelter has become acutely significant in the current climate of the Covid-19 pandemic. The lockdowns endured in many countries made many homes also double as a place of work. This exhibition showcases the creative response of two artists to the theme of the house – contrasting the quiet serenity, and a sense of ‘peace on earth’ that Kenro Izu finds with his lens, against the deconstructivist energy in Tony Moore’s clay sculptures.

On Saturday, September 18th at 3 pm, join artist Tony Moore in the gallery for an in-depth discussion on his clay sculptures. 

Tony Moore is an English-American sculptor and painter represented in international museum collections including the Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Greenville Museum, San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Woodstock Artists Association & Museum, Art Museum of the University of Memphis and ASU Art Museum, USA, and the Yorkshire Museum and Derby Museum, UK. He received an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University.  He is the recipient of prestigious awards, including a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award, CAPS Grant, and Sally and Milton Avery Fellowship. Moore will also discuss his time as a Byrdcliffe Artist in Residence in the 1990s.
