About John Grade
John Grade (American, born 1970 in Minneapolis, MN) lives and works in Seattle, WA. Inspired by changing geological and biological forms and systems in the natural world, John works with his studio team to sculpt immersive large-scale, site-specific installations. Kinetics, impermanence and chance are often central to the work.

John is the recipient of the 2010 Metcalf Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (NY), a Tiffany Foundation Award (NY), three Andy Warhol Foundation Grant Awards (NY), two Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grants (NY), the 2011 Arlene Schnitzer Prize from the Portland Art Museum (OR), and the 2013 Arts Innovator Award from Artist Trust (WA).

About Andrea Ramsay 
In late 2014, Andrea Ramsay left the technology sector and traded in her laptop in for a chisel. She attended the Woodworking Intensive Program focused on hand tools at The Port Townsend School of Woodworking and completed this program in spring 2015. After school she worked in the community shop at Pratt Fine Arts Center before moving to her current home, Georgetown’s Equinox Studios. Andrea uses traditional hand made joinery and incorporate power tools where it makes sense. Her aesthetic is clean and simple embracing the beauty inherent to the wood.

Today, she divides her time between managing the shop for John Grade Sculpture Studio, teaching at Pratt Fine Arts Center, and building commissioned work. Her commissioned work ranges from custom designed built-ins for unique spaces to mid century styled record cabinets.

 
Thank you to Andrea Ramsay, Studio Manager for organizing this program.
