John Drury

John Drury lives with his wife and children in Brooklyn, NY. John earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1983 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture and painting from the Ohio State University in 1985. John is a founding trustee of Glass Axis (1987) a not-for-profit public access glass facility, recently celebrating their 25th year and located in Columbus, Ohio. He is also half of the artist collective CUD with Robbie Miller of Vancouver, a collaboration founded in 1988 that continues today.

Mr. Drury has exhibited nationally and internationally over a long career in the arts. The critic John Perreault writes in reference to an exhibition for Glass magazine (#60), “Drury has a storyteller’s gift for combining unlikely objects as though they were a string of events in a daydream”. Mr. Perreault continues, “he is a mixed-media sculptor/provocateur” and “Drury, to my mind, is a true poet of the material world. He is a trickster rather than a prankster; an urban shaman”.
