With the Young Masters Art Prize being in its 10 anniversary, it has grown to include a total of 9 prizes this year including a few ceramic-specific awards. I mean, let’s take a moment to appreciate what an incredible show of support this is for artists!

One of the new awards this year is a PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD. This £500 cash prize will go toward the artist that accumulates the most votes from the general public. Voting is OPEN now, and closes on September 30th, noon (London time. So, 7AM here!)

Every vote matters, and I’d surely appreciate yours! It literally takes 30 seconds. HERE is the link to vote, or click the button below. & THANK YOU!!

I’ve been wanting to show in London for the longest time, and finally my opportunity came in June! Organized by VisitPittsburgh, GPAC, Pittsburgh International Airport and British Airways, a small group of Pittsburgh artists were selected to have a pop-up exhibition in the Southbank neighborhood of London, just along the Thames! This was to advertise a new, direct flight from PIT > LONDON. Very cool. My piece was also included in the PR for this event, check it out in these articles HERE and HERE.

”In collaboration with the Greater Pittsburgh Art Council, Pittsburgh International Airport, VisitPITTSBURGH is bringing together a collective of exclusive artworks by 12 Pittsburgh-based artists on London’s vibrant Southbank 3-9 June. Pittsburgh Art on the Bank is a multi-disciplinary showcase by well-known and emerging artists, offering an immersive presentation of the city’s diverse talent and artistry.”

This, is one of my highest honors to date!

In July I was notified that my work had been shortlisted for the Young Master’s Art Prize in London! (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) This renowned, innovative and high-profile Prize recognizes how contemporary artists embrace the art of the past, and is an initiative of the Cynthia Corbett Gallery. I was absolutely astounded by my selection, and honored when I saw the other artists who were shortlisted with me. They’re incredible, and the juror’s will have no easy task selecting the prize winner, which is to be announced on October 1.

I’m giddy even writing this.

The Young Masters Art Prize will be debuting their shortlisted artists at an exhibition on view at La Galleria, London from September 30 - October 5, 2019.  The exhibition runs alongside Frieze Week in London.

“good things come to those who wait” .

That’s what they say, but hey, maybe it’s true?! After multiple attempts, my work was finally chosen from hundreds to be published in Create! Magazine! I highly revere this publication for the high-quality of artists that are chosen, as well as the powerhouse team behind the scenes! I’m particularly excited to be chosen because the guest jurors, who curated this issue, are from Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia. I’ve admired this gallery longer than I could say…what an honor!

Ties that Bind

Curated by Erika Diamond, this exhibition draws together contemporary artists whose works depict the structural intricacy and metaphorical connectivity of Lace. Exploring diverse themes such as heritage or geology, each artist uses intertwined patterns that uniquely reveal our attachments to place and each other. From textiles to flame worked glass, they examine the fragility and resilience of our entanglements as well as their chosen medium.

"Painter, Artist, Teacher: Crystal Latimer wears many hats." -Trib Live
-Thank you, Rex Rutkowski, for this lovely write up!

“One of Crystal's greatest strengths lies in the ability to successfully embed complex socio-cultural subject matter within strikingly beautiful designs and otherwise attractive imagery,” he says. In this way her work operates successfully both in terms of its salability and its dedication to the content and ideas that drive her as an artist. This is something I admire a great deal and is not an easy balance for artists to strike.” -Chris McGinnis

Join me on Friday, October 6th from 6-8pm for the opening reception of my newest solo show at Penn State, New Kensington campus. I'll be debuting new ..and somehow even more colorful.. paintings, alongside some older favorites. The title of the show todavía, translating in English to "still", alludes to the overarching history of Westernization in Latin America, and how my 2015-2017 pieces work as a collective under these same conceptual concerns.

> on display until Oct. 27th
Gallery Hours: Mon. - Fri: 8a-8p , Weekends: 12-5p
