Clad In will host oil paintings by Rachel Brask for the months of April and May 2018. This exhibition will feature the most recent “Abstracted Rainy Moments” paintings by Brask, recently painted during a two-week art residency at Truro Center for the Arts Castle Hill’s Edgewood Farm, located on Cape Cod. Throughout the residency, Brask scouted out potential locations and landscapes that she could photograph as reference images to inspire new scenes for her to paint, then to have it “rain” on her painting compositions.
There will be an artist reception on Thursday, May 10, 5:30-7:30pm. Come out for some light refreshments, meet the artist, and see how the the shop is curated to have the artwork and fashionware complement one another.
During the month of July 2017, The Olive Tap Providence will host Rachel Brask as the featured artist. Visit The Olive Tap at 485 Angell Street, Providence, RI (in Wayland Square) to see several paintings and prints by Rachel Brask in the rear gallery & tasting area. A selection of “Abstracted Rainy Moments” paintings will be on exhibit July 1-28, 2017. All paintings and prints are for sale through The Olive Tap.

I write this as an artist who is very closely attached to my work. That being said, you’ll be reading about this exhibition opening night through the artist’s eyes. If you want to hear about it through others’ eyes, I can refer you to a few who were there that evening.
I’ll start by saying — THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support me and the Samaritans of RI Forget-Me-Not Gallery by attending the opening reception! After making lots of check-lists and crossing of to-do’s on my lists, it was when the first guests of the evening walked in the door of the gallery that this whole event became real. Continue reading

I held a Pop-up Poolside Paintings Preview Party last weekend. What is this event? It is a combination of studio reception, part artist talk, and part just summertime fun! I thought up the idea a few months ago when I was thinking of combining two things I love to do –art and having people over for fun & food– as a milestone and celebration for completing 10 paintings in a new series on time. I will get things done if I make a deadline for myself, and having a party to invite people to in order to get paintings done seemed like a good and fun idea.
