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.
Rachel Brask will have up to 10 of her coastal-inspired paintings of beaches, oceans, coastal sunsets, and dunes. Some of these paintings are from her residency in Truro at the Castle Hill Center for the Arts in March 2018. This exhibition will include several other artists, full list TBA.

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.

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.
It was an honor to participate in such a lovely exhibition and lively art opening as The Elements Exhibition at the Warwick Museum of Art. The Elements featured artworks within the theme of wind, earth, water and fire. Two of my paintings were selected through the juried process for participation in the show. Looking around at a of the other artwork, I was very impressed with the level of talent exhibited within the space. I also got to meet some other fantastic artists such as photographer, Carol Proulx, sculptor, Neal Personeus, and painter, Carol Scarvotto. The organizers of the show and opening, Courtney Rose and Patti Martucci did an excellent job and it was a pleasure to be present to meet other artists and art appreciators. I hope to do another show sometime at the Warwick Art Museum in the future.
