Page Bond Gallery presents, Fountainhead Fellows: Jaydan Moore and Olivia Valentine, a two-person exhibit of artwork created during the artists’ nine-month fellowships in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Craft/Material Studies.

Jaydan Moore, Fountainhead Fellow in Jewelry/Metalsmithing, has created a series of objects and investigations in his interest on the heirloom.  Using the imagery of found silver-plated tableware, he fragments and reassembles these objects into new forms to challenge and commemorate the individual’s ability to designate value to/ his her own valuables and memories.  Olivia Valentine, Fountainhead Fellow in the area of Fiber, creates work that explores architectural spaces through large-scale textile installations.  Together the fellows’ work represents the next generation of artists thinking through the media and concepts of craft in refreshing ways.
