Planters Trade

June 20th – August 6th, 2018
Courtney McCloskey | Exhibitions

June 20 - August 6
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 23, 4 - 6pm

"This Installation is a direct response to the communities that I am a part of and what can be created within them.  The show itself is an exchange of planters. I have reached out to artists within my communities and have invited them to trade a planter they have made with a planter I have made. Throughout the duration of the show the trades will continue. As the plants grow the installation will transform from a singular voice to many, depicting the communities that surround us and helps develop who we are."

Courtney  is a multimedia artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York.  After receiving her BFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, she made the transition to Brooklyn where she has become a part of two communal public access studios: GasWorks (a ceramics studio) and UrbanGlass. She is constantly inspired by the environment around her and how they impact her quality of life, and these unique spaces have an amazing influence on her current work.
