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

Yes, I'm flabbergasted. 

Somehow my paintings have ended up in the same brochure as the artistic geniuses of Andy Warhol and Alexander Calder! Whaaaat?! CRAZY. So, of course, I had to share.
