Opening reception September 14th, 6 - 8 PM.
Christina Massey will be exhibiting her mixed media glass and repurposed aluminum sculptures in a new colorful installation that activates the UrbanGlass Window Gallery. Created at UrbanGlass with a grant from the Brooklyn Arts Foundation in 2019, this series is a more representational selection of her larger body of work. The work addresses the potential effects of climate change on vegetation over time due to industries like fracking. The works have an oddness and mysteriousness to them, almost acting like crystal balls, where we look within for answers which are obstructed by reflections and patterns which distract us with their aesthetic beauty.
Christina Massey is a Brooklyn-based, mixed media artist using repurposed materials and handblown glass. Her work has won multiple awards including an FST StudioProject Fund Grant 2019, Brooklyn Arts Fund Grants 2022 & 2019, SIP Fellowship at the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop 2017 and Puffin Foundation Grant 2018. Massey’s work is in the collections of the Janet Turner Museum, Art Bank Collection in DC, Bank of America Collection in Miami, Credit Suisse and multiple private collections. Her work has been shown extensively at galleries and museums in the NY metropolitan region and been featured in fairs such as the 14C Art Fair and Springbreak Art Show.
Massey is the founder of the WoArtBlog, a platform highlighting the work of contemporary female-identifying artists. Her curatorial projects have shown at such locations as the Pelham Art Center, BioBAT Artspace, Hunterdon Museum and Court Tree Collective.
"Changing the Course of Time" is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC)
