Jay Moss - fine artist

JAY MOSS - After graduating from the High School of Art and Design and then being hospitalized in World War II with pneumonia, trench foot and malaria, Jay attended the Art Students League on the wonderful G.I. Bill of Rights. After a few routine art jobs, he was hired by the NBC-TV art department. After several years he left this position as it's head to form his own company: Museum Designs. That company was purchased by Westwood Industries, a large lighting company. This led Jay to design lighting products for many companies and also pursue my real interest: Sculpture! He is one of the artists featured in the recent book of the Bronx Artist Documentary Project. Jay has had two one-man shows: at the historic Wells Gallery in Lenox, MA in 2001 and the most recent was in 2014 at Manhattan College in Riverdale. The New York Times and The Riverdale Press covered that exhibit. And that time, his son, Jordan Moss, wrote about Jay in the art section of The Forward. (He has also been covered by Art News, In These Times, and The Advocate in Massachusetts.) He was accepted by CURATE NYC in 2011 and 2013.  He happily continues sculpting at his apartment in the Riverdale section of the Bronx.
