Alison Croney Moses

Artadia Awardee

“Alison Croney Moses is a serious artist making powerful work. Her commitment to both her career and her community was palpable. I’m very excited to see what she does next.”- Juror Dexter Wimberly, Independent Curator and Co-Founder, Creative Study.

Alison Croney Moses is the Liberty Mutual Artadia Award recipient.

Alison Croney Moses creates wooden objects that reach out to your senses—the smell of cedar, the color of honey or the deep blue sea, the round form that signifies safety and warmth, the gentle curve that beckons to be touched. Her work is in the collections at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She is a recipient of the 2022 USA Fellowship in Craft and has been featured in American Craft Magazine. 

Moses strives to create situations and objects where people are compelled to interact, to express, and therefore challenge themselves to heal, to stand taller, to build community, and to work toward a more just future. Whether this occurs in a classroom where her presence shows that art and woodworking is a valid pursuit for young people who look like her or when she brings together mothers of color in Boston to build solidarity, support, and friendship while we navigate raising Black and Brown children to value their own identities in a white society. Bringing together people to learn, to laugh, to cry, is as much of Moses’ art practice as what takes place in the woodshop and this community activation shows up side by side the wooden sculptures.
