MARY HALLAM PEARSE
Mary Hallam Pearse is excited to support Cine and local artists by coordinating exhibitions for the next year. The artists chosen represent a range of themes, styles and experiences, from the emerging to the established. The work stretches across the landscape of what is considered traditional in terms of letterpress, jewelry, drawing, painting and tattoos. What connects each of these artists is Athens Georgia, where they are an integral part of the community.
Mary is currently an Associate Professor and area chair of the jewelry and metalwork area at The Lamar Dodd School of Art in Athens, Georgia. She received her M.F.A. in Metal from SUNY New Paltz and a B.F.A. in Crafts with an emphasis in Jewelry and Metals from Kent State University. In her ongoing work Mary is interested in how jewelry has functioned historically as a marker of status, class, wealth, and a record of human experience. Her work has been selected for competitive exhibitions in museums and galleries both nationally and internationally and included in publications such as Metalsmith, Ornament and American Craft. Curatorial projects include; Crafting History: Textiles, Metals and Ceramics at the University of Georgia, Parallels: Jonathan Wahl and Sondra Sherman, The Ring Shows: Then & Now and Putting the Band Back Together and Coming into View. She has been invited to present lectures and provide workshops at many universities and craft centers across the county.
