Windgate Artist-In-Residence Exhibit:
Christine Lee

Reception: Thursday, January 28, 2010 5-7PM
Panel Discussion: Saturday, January 30th, 1-4PM
On View: January 12– February 5, 2009

From her tendency to engage in highly process-driven tactile endeavors and her training in the craft-based disciplines of woodworking and furniture design, Christine Lee explores, stretches and refines the typical associations and intended functions of mundane materials. Her objects and installations reflect her rhythmic, repetitive exploration of these outdated, discarded or recycled materials, examining their histories while promoting alternative destinations.  Lee's work in this highly anticipated exhibit was produced during her residency at the School of Art+Design during the Fall 2009 semester. The Windgate Artist-in-Residence program in Applied Design brings a new artist to the College each semester to explore new work.
