Rockwell Ambassador members are invited to celebrate the Museum’s most recent Emerging Artists Rotunda Installation, Antigravity, featuring 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. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to visit one-on-one with the artist.
