Crystal Wagner

Crystal Wagner received her MFA from the University of Tennessee in 2008, her BFA from the Atlanta College of Art in 2004, and her AFA from Keystone College in 2002. She is currently based in Harrisburg, PA and is represented by Hashimoto Contemporary, San Francisco, CA.

Wagner’s interest in combining 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional forms, alternative use of materials, and hybrid approaches to printmaking have led to her artwork being exhibited extensively. Her exhibition schedule has her actively growing large-scale installations all over the United States.

Past and future installations have been created for the Virginia MOCA, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, UIAC (Grand Rapids, MI), and in Times Square, NYC.

Crystal is a recipient of the 2015 Pollock-Krasner Grant.
