Joe Cory


Joe Cory is an artist and educator who is passionate about using art to figure out this complex world and point others to Jesus. After spending 35 years in the midwest—and earning degrees from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA) and the University of Chicago (MFA)— Joe and his family loaded up their minivan and moved to the south where he spends his days teaching at Samford University, working in the studio or leading the board of CIVA: Christians in the Visual Arts, a national organization dedicated to supporting faith-based artists and the church. Joe’s work has been displayed at a variety of venues around the country and he has won numerous grants and awards. An introvert by nature, when he's not working, he enjoys reading, watching sports, or hanging out with his very patient wife and their four children.
