Mary Stuart Hall creates sculptural installations that mediate text and other forms of cultural artifacts into a multi-dimensional experience. The construction of knowledge based on digested experience, combined with rich emotional content generate architectural forms integrated with interactive technology. The emotional experience of loss and inadequate memory runs through the thematic content of the work.

Graduating with a degree in Sculpture for Sewanee, The University of the South and a Masters in Art Education from the University of Georgia, Hall lives in Atlanta where she was born and raised. She teaches visual art at the Galloway School.   

In addition to her sculptural practice, Hall’s teaching practice is an important part of her creative life. In 2009 she started a darkroom at a community center just south of downtown Atlanta called Emmaus House. She has taught photography workshops to everyone from middle schoolers to retired people. She has presented her work at the National Art Education Association Conference, the Georgia Art Education Association Conference, and the Georgia Independent Schools Association Conference. Hall is a founding member of Night School, a community supper group that promotes a creative dialogue through social engagement. She has continued her education with workshops on social practice with Harrel Fletcher, 3D modeling, 3D printing, and interactive technology.
