Brask to show at AS220 Main Gallery Nov 2018

Rachel Brask and Jennifer Gervais will take over the AS220 Main Gallery with an exhibition of each of their respective works. This exhibition will be on view November 3-24, 2018, with an opening reception on Saturday, Nov. 3rd 5-7pm. 

Rachel will exhibit a selection of oil paintings from her Abstracted Rainy Moments series of paintings inspired by the view through a window during a rainstorm. This exhibition will include the first public gallery showing of 10+ paintings created during her art residency in Maine this past summer. Many of these paintings are inspired by the changing daylight reflected over the harbor in sunrises and sunsets, and through photos she took while exploring Acadia National Park and the harbor.
