Brockville – Join Christina Chrysler to celebrate the final weeks of her exhibition, Urban Escapes, at the Brockville Arts Centre (BAC) on Thursday, November 23rd from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The exhibition is on for the month of November at the BAC.
On display are a selection of photographs, paintings, and mixed media works created over the past year by Chrysler. A cash bar will be available.
ABOUT THE ART: Christina’s most recent series, Urban Escapes, centers on the Urban environment. As in much of her previous work, each piece focuses on small details and observations; the ignored street performer, architectural details of the past juxtaposed with graffiti or modern elements, quiet corners, and unique perspectives.
Through her photography and paintings, Christina endeavors to capture the energy and vitality that exists in large urban centres- whether that be through simplified form, shape, and colour in her paintings (influenced by stenciled street art), or capturing the impact of time and changing society on the urban landscape through her photography. Mixed media works explore the textures and ‘feel’ of the urban environment.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Christina has lived in a number of communities across Eastern Ontario before settling in Brockville, where for 5 years she has worked as Curator of the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery, a state-of-the-art community gallery located within St. Lawrence College, Brockville. Christina is Professor of Fine Arts and Program Coordinator for the Visual & Creative Arts- Fine Arts program as well as the renowned 1000 Islands Summer School of the Arts at St. Lawrence College.
Working for years as a practicing mixed-media artist, Christina has exhibited works in mixed media, watercolour, printmaking and photography in Canada and the United States. Her art is held in private collections around the world including the USA, England, Ireland, the Philippines, Australia, Switzerland, Germany and Brazil.
