IN LIFE THERE ARE MANY LOVES, AND IN MINE ONE PASSION: SCULPTURE
Ann Jon is a professional sculptor who has studied, created, exhibited and taught sculpture for more than 40 years, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, in America and in Europe.
She grew up in Denmark, and her work is inspired by that country’s medieval architecture, by ancient cultures worldwide, and more recently, by the topography and spirituality of mountains, canyons and deserts.
Her sculptures are informed by studies and intuition. They range in scale from the intimate to the monumental, and use both traditional and experimental materials and techniques.
Since 1998 she has been the Director of SculptureNow, a non-profit art and educational organization which presents an annual exhibition of large-scale, outdoor sculptures in the Berkshires, and offers sculpture programs for students in the public schools.
She has curated and organized numerous public art exhibitions and is committed to promoting sculpture in the public arena and to giving young people the opportunity to create their own three-dimensional art.
Her current studio and home is in one of the Berkshire Hilltowns.
When she is not in her studio, office, or out teaching in a school, she cross-country skis, hikes, and kayaks.
