Crissie Murphy will be presenting a talk on November 8th at 7 PM at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts. She will discuss her work with the various branches of the military, as well as her other art experiences.
Crissie received her BFA in Illustration from Massachusetts College of Art, with additional studies at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Harvard. The subjects of Crissie’s paintings are wide and varied. All offer exquisite detail and sense of design and spirit. Her original oils, watercolors, and graphics in various media combine the spontaneous narrative of sketchbooks with the finish and textural interest of studio work.
Crissie was chosen to participate in the prestigious US Air Force Art Program. At the request of the Pentagon she has documented operations overseas and at home, she has been deployed to Haiti and Guantanamo Bay shortly after the earthquake to document relief efforts. A recent recipient of the ASAA Founder’s Recognition Award for her work depicting Special Operations Forces, her paintings currently hang in the Pentagon, and are permanent additions to the USAF Collection. Plus featured in the Air Force 60th Anniversary Exhibition, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of the USAF, US Coast Guard, and various other museums and galleries across the country. She recently won awards at both the North Shore Art Association and Whistler Museum.
Here are examples of Crissie’s work in other media.
