• “Recycling Nature: Revitalizing The Handmade Tradition” by Rachel Singel. This exhibit is on display now through May 2.
She has also studied non-toxic printmaking at the Grafisk Eksperimentarium studio in Andalusia and recently continued her research at Wharepuke Print Studios in New Zealand. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and represented in private, public, and museum collections.
As she explains:
“My imagery comes from what I see in nature. From a hollow in a tree to a break in the clouds, absence is a recurring motif.
These spaces intrigue me, and I begin to wonder where they might lead. The work is my response to the intricacies and depth of natural forms.
I seek to observe the processes of nature and embody them in my own works of art.”
” On display Jan. 18 to May 16.
“We can see, smell or hear wind, trees, bark, leaves, bugs, birds, and animals, but we cannot see the science and ecology at work in insect communities under bark, molecular structures of plants, tree rings, photosynthesis, and botanical details — to name a few,” organizers noted.
This exhibit will be shown Jan. 25 to March 14.
Her ceramic works consisted of both functional ware and nonfunctional pit fired pottery.
As she explains:
“My paintings begin not with a preconceived idea, but in a playful manner with paints, shapes, and marks.
Being surprised at the outcome brings me great joy. This is a creative process that demands experimentation, playfulness, focus, and attention.
It teaches me trust, patience, and awareness. For me, painting is both liberating and calming.
I love the process and delight in the outcome.”
” This national juried show will be shown from Feb. 1 to March 28.
“From micro to macro scale, we are bombarded by the combined visual, auditory, tactile, and olfactory event.
View Arts Center wants to recreate the impression of these sensory experiences in its inter-connected galleries. It is looking for artists’ responses to the textures and layers of the woods and invites artists to submit to the show,” organizers said.
Recent awards include 1st place in Natural Homes: Nests, Burrows, Caves and Trees at View Arts and 1st place at the Artragious Bird Exhibit in Whitewater, WI.
An opening reception will be held for all four exhibits on Feb.
