Christina Saj's Summary

I was trained as a fine artist and working as an artist I have exhibited extensively throughout the country for over 20 years, having participated in almost 100 exhibitions. Early in my career I mastered traditional techniques of oil and egg tempera paintings. This work has evolved into contemporary interpretations of icons which have been widely exhibited including such venues as the Museum of Biblical Art, Union Theological Seminary, The Ukrainian Museum in New York, Museum of Cultural Heritage, Kiev Ukraine, the American Embassy in Qatar as well as at the White House. The works reside in private and museum collections in the US and abroad.

Throughout I have pursued curating art exhibitions, giving lectures, teaching and doing workshops.

painting -- egg tempera, oil, mixed media and acrylic. small and large scale work on a variety of surfaces including but not limited to glass, steel, stone, canvas, and wood in both large and small format.

The work has traveled and exhibited extensively and been widely published in a variety of contexts.

Fine Art, Marketing & Design: I have partnered with artists, creative professionals, as well as arts organizations and institutions to develop programming and business building strategies and to develop all aspects of support in pr, marketing and design for the arts.
