Taking Shape at the NU Hotel & Gowanus Open Studios
to Dec 13

Taking Shape at the NU Hotel & Gowanus Open Studios


NU Hotel Brooklyn and Welancora Gallery are pleased to present Taking Shape, the second edition in their collaboration of quarterly art exhibitions with art exclusively by Brooklyn artists.  Featuring works by Chanel Kennebrew and Christina Massey, Taking Shape is on view in the lobby of NU Hotel Brooklyn until December 13, 2017.  An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, October 5, 2017 at 85 Smith Street in Downtown Brooklyn from 6 -9 pm. 

This exhibition focuses on the unconventional materials that these artists utilize in their practice and how the work is significantly impacted by their life experiences.  Massey creates complex sculptural paintings from simple materials such as wire, mesh, beer cans and paper.  Massey's work is driven by her sensitivity to materials, form, texture and shape.  Kennebrew creates assemblages of toys from the sixties and seventies to reveal possibilities and narratives that are often overlooked or not widely accepted.  

About NU Hotel Brooklyn:

NU Hotel Brooklyn is an environmentally conscious lifestyle hotel located at the intersection of Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens.  


The exhibition will be a part of the Gowanus Open Studios 2017 on October 21st and 22nd, 12-6pm. For more infor, please go here: http://www.agdir.org/artist/artist.php?id=494&ret=3

Inspired by the Women's March last January where women gathered in record numbers, the strength in numbers motto is a subtle premise behind “BIGGER, BOLDER, BETTER”. The three curators bring together fifteen women artists whose work utilize fragmentation, repetition, distinct use of daily materials, and labor intensive processes. These artists create site specific installations, overall activating 470 Vanderbilt’s large space with unexpected interventions. Fully visible from Atlantic and Vanderbilt Avenues in downtown Brooklyn, the exhibition is placed at the intersection between the street and the interior, the public and the personal. The evocative location, along with the accumulative interventions in the space by this roster of fifteen artists, creates a show that in itself forms a manifestation of support and strength, a site where these women gather to actualize their work individually and that altogether gets bigger, bolder and better.

Curators Jaynie Crimmins, Etty Yaniv and Christina Massey have a history of creating exhibitions that revolve around and support female artists. In collaborating together their own shared connection in aesthetic, quality, depth and meaning they brought together this exhibition in just two weeks’ time. In what is essentially a 7000 sq/ft pop-up space provided by the non-profit Chashama, this exhibition is a unique opportunity to showcase and highlight some of New York’s most exciting female artists.
