Collection: Eleanor Foy

Athens, GA

Eleanor Foy is a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Athens, GA. Raised in the south San Francisco Bay Area, the landscape and mythology of California and the American West continue to inform her work. After studying painting for three years at Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, NY), Foy transferred to Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) to complete her BFA in ceramics. This change in focus was compelled by a desire to work in a medium that spans fine art, craft, and mass-production. Foy received numerous awards at KCAI as well as the Regina Brown Undergraduate Student Fellowship through the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA), and completed a Foundation Residency at Belger Crane Yard Studios (Kansas City, MO). She has exhibited nationally, including at the 2022 NCECA Annual Exhibition, Belonging, at the Crocker Art Museum (Sacramento, CA). She is interested in how domestic objects express cultural values, and seeks to unpack the complicated layers of meaning in seemingly mundane images of Americana. Foy is an MFA candidate at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia (Athens).
