LINK Gallery Presents: Poetic Spaces by Christine Mauersberger
Christine Mauersberger is an artist who uses textiles, found materials, eco-dyeing and mark-making (both drawn and stitched) to create pieces that range from small and intimate to room-sized installations. Her work is featured in private and public collections, including Southwest General Hospital in Cleveland, and has been published in Slow Stitch: Mindful and Contemplative Textile Art and Second Skin: Choosing and Caring for Textiles and Clothing, and in the 2016 updated edition of The Encyclopedia of Embroidery Techniques as well as various print and online publications. Her installations have been included at the Ohio Arts Council Riffe Gallery in Material Pulses: 8 Viewpoints, Rooms to Let: CLE, and in Beyond Materials at the Work Gallery in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and grants, including the Ohio Arts Council Award of Individual Excellence, a $20,000 Creative Workforce Fellowship, and a Windgate Craft Artist Fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center. She lives and creates in her native Cleveland, Ohio less than ten miles away from the Slovak civic club where her parents went dancing every Saturday night when she was growing up.
