Christina has been active in multiple arts organizations such as No Limits for Women Artists and Eastbank Artists while she lived in Wisconsin. Here she showed her work for several years at Founder's Square in Fish Creek, Door County, WI, at Elizabeth's in Fish Creek, and at the Pumphouse in La Crosse, WI. She also showed her work at the Winona Art Center, Winona, MN.
In Iowa she showed her work at through the artists' guild in Fairfield, Iowa, and still retained some of her work in WI.
In Minneapolis she has shown her work at the Cedar Cultural Arts Center, Powderhorn Art Fair for 3 years (she can no longer do two day shows because of her health), The Art Shoppe, Twin Cities Friends Meeting Arts and Crafts Sale, the Women's Art Festival (WAF) for 4 years and probably again in 2016. This show is always the 2nd Saturday in December at the Colin Powell Youth Center in South Minneapolis and has over 130 women artists and crafters, all day live entertainment, food and delightful energy and fun - a light and airy venue and wonderful place to purchase holiday gifts, to see a large variety of art and to take friends.
At the WAF Christina often brings many small paintings suitable for holiday hanging and decoration. These are quite often priced under $100.00. But there are multiple sizes, prices and subjects, from teapots to crows, from flower pots to trees, cranes, and clocks. It's a day of celebration and discussion and the sharing of smiles.
She continues to show and sell her work through the Art Shoppe, at the Midtown Global Market in South Minneapolis, and her website.
