GUERILLA GALLERIES PRESENTS ‘WAGNER’ AT ONE GALLERY IN NEWARK’S ONE GATEWAY CENTER
NEWARK, NJ – From July 17 through August 31
Emerging New Jersey artist Christine Wagner will be exhibiting a collection of her works on paper at One Gallery in Newark’s One Gateway Center.
“WAGNER” illustrates her minimalist aesthetic and modern point of view regarding the abstract. Embracement of negative space, focus on line and confident use of color are the embodiment of Wagner’s unique style. Her media consists of gouache, ink, charcoal, marker, and pencil combined to create bold, vibrant works of art.
Wagner has a background in fashion design with a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She has been regularly showing in northern New Jersey for the past year, most recently in Montclair, West Orange, Newark, and Morristown. Wagner works as a freelance artist’s consultant and assistant and is also a co-founder and co-director of Guerilla Galleries.
The public is invited to attend an opening reception on Saturday, July 17, 2010 from 6 to 10pm. The exhibition will also be available for viewing during gallery hours and by appointment through August 31.
One Gallery is conveniently located off of Route 21 in the lower lobby of One Gateway Center. The building is directly across the street from Newark Penn Station and is easily accessible by bus or train. Parking is available in a secure parking deck adjacent to the building.

This event is hosted by leading real estate owner and developer Advance Realty, owner of One Gateway Center. Like all events hosted at One Gallery, a portion of the proceeds of “WAGNER” will raise money for Newark-based charities through the Advance Realty Foundation, which was formed in 2001 to improve education and educational opportunities, preserve arts and history, positively affect today’s youth/families, and enhance economic opportunities for at-risk and urban populations.
About Guerilla Galleries
Guerilla Galleries (GuGa) was an idea born of three artists who wished to exhibit their own art, as well as other emerging artists, in a new and innovative manner. They hope to slowly and steadfastly promote artistic expression and expansion wherever they are welcome and supported to do so. By employing unused and unusual spaces they work to create, market and execute professional, high impact exhibitions and provide a venue for burgeoning new talents to showcase their creativity and abilities.
Christine Wagner, Marshall Okin and Stan Sudol, the founders and directors of GuGa, are approaching the gallery in a new fashion by taking the underground art scene and making it far more accessible, and hopefully beneficial, for both artist and community.
