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.
