Caroline Gore’s studio practice is deeply rooted in jewelry and metalsmithing processes – her work varies in media, scale and implementation ranging from jewelry to sculptural installations, photography and large-scale drawing. She maintains a studio in northeast Philadelphia at the Crane Arts Building, and joined the faculty at The University of the Arts in 2014 as an Associate Professor of Craft & Material Studies. Gore holds a BFA in Crafts with a jewelry focus from Virginia Commonwealth University and her MFA in Metal Design from East Carolina University. Exhibition venues have included the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts in Michigan, Velvet da Vinci Gallery in California and various international art fairs through New York based gallery Ornamentum. Her work is often centered on investigations of site and the direct and often indirect relationships we have to place through experience and remembering. In 2012 she was awarded a sabbatical for research from Western Michigan University for the academic year 2012-13. The exhibition …mercurial silence… was the result of this intense period of time spent in studio where through research and experimentation she plumbed deeper into material meaning, the histories jewelry and objects hold and our unique ability to process memory though remembering, forgetting and furthermore - transforming. After a thoughtful and structured break in 2013 from commercial venues and commitments, she returned to working with galleries in 2016 and is currently represented by Gallery Loupe in Montclair, New Jersey. Her work can be found in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Arts – Houston, Racine Art Museum, and numerous private collections.
