JAMES WADE Biography

James A. Wade Jr (born 1971, Columbus, Indiana) studied art at the University of Kentucky and the University of Georgia, earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1996.  His sculptures, prints, and drawings have been included in more than 120 exhibitions across the United States as well as in England, Poland, Italy, and Bolivia. With a university teaching career that spanned 22 years, Wade continues to instruct courses and workshops in foundry practices nationally and abroad. From 2006 to 2013, he taught cast iron workshops at the Ironbridge Open Air Museum of Steel Sculpture in Coalbrookdale, England, and at Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum in Solsberry, Indiana. In 2011, the Bournville Village Trust commissioned Wade to create a public artwork. His cast iron sculpture ‘Measures’ was modeled and cast at the Museum of Steel Sculpture in Coalbrookdale. It was completed in 2012 and is sited in the square of Lightmoor Village, Shropshire. The National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, hosted a solo exhibition of his sculptures in 2017.

James Wade currently maintains a studio on his family’s land-grant farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
