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”.
