Biography

Andrew Crawford is a practicing sculptor who works in metal, wood, and found objects. His goal is to match organic form with mechanical objects and to explore the tension between the natural versus the man-made. Crawford was born in New Jersey, and moved with his family to the suburbs of Atlanta as a young boy.  His parents, who set up a workshop for him in their home, encouraged his early artistic endeavors in clay, drawing, music, and sculpture.  Andrew received his BFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1993.  Crawford has received numerous public and private art commissions from institutions throughout the Southeast, including the Atlanta Botanical Gardens; Brenau University, Gainesville, Georgia; Holder Properties, Atlanta; Highlands Performing Arts Center, North Carolina; and Federal Reserve Bank, Atlanta. He has participated in solo and group shows at Bascome-Louise Gallery, Highlands, North Carolina; Quinlan Gallery, Gainesville, Georgia; Museum of Design Atlanta; Positive Space, New Orleans; and The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, among others.  He recently had an outdoor sculpture show at MOCA GA, where one of his pieces is on extended loan. Crawford’s studio, The Andrew T. Crawford Ironworks, is located on Bowen Street in Northwest Atlanta.
