SPOTLIGHT: Christine Mauersberger
May 5 – June 18, 2017
Aquascapes, a series of pigment and watercolor paintings on synthetic paper by Heights Arts working-artist member Christine Mauersberger, opens in the Spotlight gallery with a public reception on Friday, May 5, 6-9 p.m..
A native Clevelander, Christine is an artist who uses a variety of media to create pieces that range from small and intimate to room-sized installations. Her work is featured in private and public collections, including Southwest General Hospital and MetroHealth Hospitals in Cleveland. She has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and grants, including the Ohio Arts Council Award of Individual Excellence, a $20,000 Creative Workforce Fellowship, and a Windgate Craft Artist Fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center. She lives and creates less than ten miles away from the Slovak civic club where her parents went dancing every Saturday night when she was growing up.
About the work on view, Christine notes,”The Aquascapes series is directly influenced by my views of Lake Erie. I am always surprised by the transient nature of its color on any one day. I’m interested in creating beautiful images of water and light to evoke its timeless nature.” The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, June 18.
