Inside Outside is not only Gillian Christy’s first solo exhibition; it is also her first traveling show. After exhibiting Inside Outside in the Mayer Gallery, at Appalachian State University, NC, the exhibition is presently at the Campus Center Art Gallery, Fitchburg State College, MA, to introduce Gillian and her work to the Fitchburg community. Gillian Christy has been selected to complete a large scale public work for the town. The commission will welcome visitors and natives of Fitchburg via the Water Street Bridge.
Christy is currently in the project’s design phase. She is drawing inspiration from the town’s history, industry, architecture, as well as discussions and thoughts from residents. In keeping with her previous work, Christy will use these inspirational elements as “connectors” to link the sculpture and the people of Fitchburg. Christy is on schedule to complete the design in December, and start fabrication in the New Year.
