Crystal Schenk will exhibit an interactive sculptural installation in IGLOO during September. The work will transform the gallery walls into a large canvas consisting of magnetized walls which will attract and hold an organic formation of steel pellets hand-placed by viewer participants. Over the course of a month, the installation will undergo continuous transformation as visitors add the steel pellets to the magnetic wall and begin to reshape the growing mass.
Schenk’s work has been exhibited at galleries in Switzerland, New York, Chicago, Portland, and throughout the Midwest. She is an adjunct professor at PNCA, The Art Institute of Portland, and Portland Community College.
Opening Reception: Thursday, Sept. 4, 6-10pm
