On view: March 2, 2018 – February 17, 2019
Rockwell Ambassador Party: March 8, 2018
The Rockwell introduces an inaugural new exhibition series: Antigravity! Each year, the museum will commission one emerging artist to create a site-specific installation for The Rockwell’s rotunda entryway. The 2018 inaugural installation will feature the work of sculptor and fiber artist Crystal Gregory. Gregory uses woven lace structures as the foundation of her work, paying particular attention to negative space and light. She experiments by pairing materials not often found together in her work such as hand-woven fabrics and molten pewter or lace and concrete.
The selected artist will have the opportunity to serve as a Guest Artist in the Corning Museum of Glass Amphitheater Hot Shop. Details coming soon!
Crystal Gregory is a sculptor whose work investigates textile structure through a variety of materials. Gregory received her BFA from the University of Oregon and was granted a Full Merit Scholarship to attend The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she received her MFA from the Fiber and Material Studies Department. In 2013 she was awarded highest honors with The Leonore Annenberg Fellowship for the Performing and Visual Arts. With this grant she moved to Amsterdam NL where she took a role as Artist-In-Residence at The Gerrit Rietveld Academie of Art.
Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationally including Devotion/Destruction: Craft Inheritance at Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Projects, Load Bearing: The Art of Construction at The Hunterdon Art Museum and Crossover at Black and White Project Space and has been reviewed in publications such as Surface Design Journal and Art Critical. Gregory is the Assistant Professor in Fiber within the School of Arts and Visual Studies at the University of Kentucky. Gregory splits her time between Lexington, KY and Brooklyn, NY and currently shows with Tatyana Okshteyn at Black & White Gallery/Project Space in Brooklyn, NY as well as Momentum Gallery, NC.
