Crystal Gregory is a multi-media installation artist whose work offers a provocative mix of traditional handmade objects, textiles, architecture, and technologies. Hailing from public schools in California, Gregory spent several years working as an artist in New York City before eventually moving to Chicago to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s MFA program in Fiber and Material Studies, where she was awarded the department’s only full merit scholarship. Gregory specialized in textiles, studying cloth construction in eight cities and four countries. Following graduation, she relocated back to New York, where she has shown in galleries, participated in exhibitions, acquired private and public commissions, and participated in prestigious artist residencies. Heirloom, presented at the DUMBO Arts Festival in 2010, is her largest installation to date, a merger of lace and architecture. Crystal holds an adjunct faculty position in the Fiber and Material studies Department at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. Click here for more information on Crystal Gregory.
