An artist and furniture maker with a background in manufacturing, Christy Oates is inspired by digital making combined with traditional woodworking techniques. Using computer-aided drafting programs and computer numerical control (CNC)  laser cutters and routers to create her work, she questions where the boundaries of art and manufacturing meet.

Digital Woodcrafting is an exploration of laser-cut wood marquetry techniques for furniture and an investigation of patterns and repetitive forms in bent wood lighting

Windgate Artist in Residence Program:

Each semester, the School of Art+Design at Purchase College invites one artist in residence in applied design. The program is structured to expand upon the conservatory environment and collaborative atmosphere that is the cornerstone of the Purchase educational experience. It provides students with the opportunity to observe an artist at work and to engage in dialogue with the artist in both the studio and classroom. Through public lectures, workshops, and exhibitions, the AIR program expands on Purchase College’s mission to act as a public resource center for the exchange and exploration of ideas relative to our cultural and social environment.”
