Karena Massengill is an artist working with steel in innovative and unique ways creating personal statements while addressing universal experiences. Her artworks are abstract but still accessible through their visual interpretations.
The installation Ambient Sounds references work Massengill did after first hearing John Cage speak when in art school in Philadelphia at Tyler School of Fine Art, Temple University. His randomness of sounds, used to create music first inspired her Visual Sounds art installations in 1980-81.
Timber/Timbre is the collaborative effort between Long Beach resident artists Katie Stubblefield, Jennifer Gunlock and Hilary Norcliffe. Having known one another and admired each other’s work since their time in CSULB’s graduate Drawing & Painting program in the early 2000’s, this project created an opportunity for the three to combine their unique approaches to art-making and interests into a single thematic installation. Each artist brings an inherent curiosity and whimsy to her work, and explores ways to convey her subject using non-traditional methods and materials.
