Brooke Gassiot is currently the Membership Coordinator on the executive Board for the Texas Sculpture Group, an official chapter of the International Sculpture Center. 

Brooke received a Bachelor of Fine Arts for Studio Art with a focus on sculpture and painting from the University of Texas. In 2005, she traveled to Italy on full scholarship, where she visited the Venice Biennale. When she returned,  she received a fellowship to finish her first large-scale installation.

Her current work, a series of light boxes, has been displayed at Blue Star Contemporary Art Space in San Antonio, Austin City Hall, GSD&M SXSW showcase, and is part of the permanent collection at milk + honey spa in downtown Austin. 

Brooke recently completed her first solo show, a large scale installation incorporating light, video and sound, at the Pump Project Art Complex in East Austin, and received rave reviews. In the near future, she has plans for light boxes in varying shapes and sizes and is working with an architect on designs which would integrate her light boxes into the walls of homes and commercial spaces.
