Discovering new mediums and expanding her skills in foundry and photography through Haystack Mountain School of Arts and Crafts she subsequently joined the Iron Guild, a group of Mass Art alum using the foundry process for performance. The Iron Guild which includes founding members Josh and Lauren Dow of the Green Foundry, Laurie Carman, Nathan Cantrell, Aaron Legg, Dave Cole, and Glen Campbell of Campbell Plaster & Iron as well as other notable participating members who have joined the Guild collaborate in creating theatrical performances using molten metal for spectacle.
Exploring and working with new materials & mediums Kerry has developed a passion for experimentation and process while discovering it is the process that she enjoys more often than the end result.
By day you can find her planning & designing environments to implement unique décor concepts for events both near and far.
Kerry Quade’s diverse resume and skill set is enhanced by her adventurous spirit and lifestyle. Based in Brooklyn, NY she recently has been exploring opportunities throughout Alaska enjoying the balance & juxtaposition of life between the metropolis of NYC & the serene landscapes of Alaska.
Kerry’s background as an artist blended with over 25 years of experience in the floral and event industry lends a creative approach to event design and production. Converging performance, mixed media and installation art while using a sculptural approach to event design results in beautiful yet edgy décor.
She can be found in her Red Hook studio surrounded by interesting objects & organic elements, out sailing or surrounded by sled dogs in Alaska.
