Gay has been a part of FRIEDA from day one. First as a morning regular for breakfast before heading out to work and within a few months as a volunteer helping organize the FRIEDA drawing group.
Often recognized and known within the FRIEDA community for her large-scale Participatory Art Project, “Water bottles for plastic flowers”, 1,000 unique hand cut, assembled and painted flowers made out of 3,000 recycled plastic bottles that adorned the canopy over FRIEDA’s entrance in 2019. Gay has since then collaborated with Thomas Steinborn on “Blue as a Butterfly”, a new Participatory Art Project involving over 60 people cutting more than 20,000 blue butterflies during COVD 19.
Gay studied painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where she studied under Elizabeth Osborne, Jimmy Leuders and Lou Sloan in the 1990s. Concurrently, she received a Bachelor of Fine Art, cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania with a major in Art History. She went on to earn a Master of Art, cum laude, from the University of the Arts with a major in Museum Education.
Morris’ designs for wallpaper date back to the late 1800s and were major influences in the Arts & Crafts Movement. Authentic versions of his original designs are being reproduced today to meet the demand of their timeless appeal.
