(Philadelphia, PA) Heather Bryson, jeweler, fine artist, and owner of B Square Gallery in Philadelphia has accepted the presidency of Moore College of Art & Design's Alumnae Association. She succeeds Joanne Adams who completed her two-year term in June.
Bryson graduated from Moore in 1992 with a BFA in sculpture. She taught in both the Young Artist Workshop and Continuing Education programs, as well as an Introduction to Metals course. In 2000 she opened B Square Gallery, a vehicle to showcase all the talented people she knows and respects, which also allows her to concentrate full time on her artwork.
Today Bryson creates custom jewelry for clients, her own gallery and The Art Shop at Moore. She uses gold, silver, precious and semi-precious stones as well as natural found objects in creating these pieces.
Bryson generously offers her gallery to Moore and the No Name Art Group for community service projects and frequently organizes neighborhood galleries for community crawls. She was honored by Tiffany & Co. Philadelphia in the "15 Women of the Moment" ceremony in 2005.
Cathey White, an artist and educator, will assume the position of vice president. She received her BFA in fine arts: 2D from Moore in 1996. She is also a member of the No Name Art Group and recently completed commissioned artwork for The Joseph Anthony Spa and Salon in Glenn Mills, Endo Pharmaceuticals and The Brown Betty Boutique in Northern Liberties.
