Keystone College alumna Crystal Wagner spent a week in residence on the Keystone campus in La Plume creating a large-scale sculptural installation in the Linder Gallery. The exhibit will be on display in the Gallery through Friday, April 29.
Ms. Wagner’s works combines two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms using alternative materials and hybrid approaches to printmaking, resulting in massive site-specific installations.
Her work has been commissioned across the United States and abroad. Her most recent work includes two large installations for Viacom, one of which is a massive piece at their headquarters in Times Square and was featured by The New York Times and VH1. Other projects include a large-scale installation for the internationally recognized band The Flaming Lips; a shadow box for GNU, a snowboard company based in Portland, Ore.; and a large-scale installation piece for a special event honoring NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant hosted by Nike.
Following her graduation from Keystone College in 2002 with an associate of fine arts degree, she received a bachelor of fine arts from Atlanta College of Art and a master of fine arts from the University of Tennessee. After teaching as a college art professor for five years, Ms. Wagner decided to focus exclusively on her studio practice.
