The USPS Art Project is a mail art artist collaboration project created by Christina Massey, free and open for anyone who wants to participate. The goal is for unique collaborative artworks to be created, allowing the artists to establish deeper connections with others while practicing social distancing and in doing so, help the financially struggling USPS by sending and receiving packages.

PRAYERS FOR THE PANDEMIC; PRAYERS FOR PROGRESS VOLUME TWO

I am pleased that my piece, “The Stories Will be Told” is included in the Prayers for the Pandemic; Prayers for Progress (Group Two) Volume Two online catalog. It is sponsored by the Drawing Rooms in Jersey City.


Prayers for the Pandemic; Prayers for Progress is our ongoing public art project happening across the United States. The concept draws inspiration from Tibetan prayer flags made of colorful rectangular cloth that are strung along trails and peaks high in the Himalayas, and used to bless the surrounding area in which they are placed.

COPELOUZOS FAMILY ART MUSEUM
This piece, “The Pattern of the Story” is going to the Copelouzos Family Art Museum in Greece. It will be in good company as part of a 35 x 35 cm painting exhibition.
They shipped this beautiful canvas to me. I am not in the habit of working on canvas. I wrapped it with layers of my patterns painted on Dura-Lar. I use the layers of patterns to both show and hide the emotions and stories that are woven into the fabric of our lives. The story in this piece is about how I felt unseen as a young adult woman.

CONNECTIVE PROJECT



Select submitted works from the public, artists, and Brooklyn notables have been printed and transformed into thousands of pinwheels extending across the Rose Garden, a hidden gem in the Park’s northeast corner that the Alliance plans to restore in the coming years. These moving expressions form a dynamic, engaging and ever-growing display worthy of the Park’s 150th. They were on view July 2017.

My image was chosen as a group of 10 finalist. It was featured in the installation, and prints of it were on sale in the Brooklyn Museum's gift shop.

TOYING WITH ART

TOYING WITH ART
The Morris Museum
6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, NJ
December 6, 2012 to March 17, 2013
Toying with Art explores the icons of childhood as artistic media, resulting in a nostalgic and inventive display of art.

I will be exhibiting three of my wire tapestry pieces built with stained pipe cleaners and a shredded fabric diary. My work reflects upon what the color pink means to girls growing up in this culture; both the beauty and oppressiveness the color can signify.
