Rachael Rhianna exhibits abstract watercolor paintings

GLENS FALLS – Artist Rachael Rhianna exhibits her watermedia artwork at the D.H.B. Thomas Gallery, located on the third floor of The Shirt Factory at the corner of Lawrence and Cooper Streets in Glens Falls, New York.

The show opens with an artist’s reception on Saturday, October 16, at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Admission is free. Info: 832-9171.

Rachael’s latest works incorporate gouache as well as watercolor in large-scale, abstract pieces. They begin as washes in bright colors which are then meticulously overlaid with black detail. Some results are reminiscent of paisley, wrought iron against a sunset, or with a tribal feel to them.

“They’re doodles,” says Rachael, who likes to call herself a Creativologist. “They’re really large doodles. I started with one painting I had started a wash on and then just ended up doodling over it. I use a really thin brush so these took me a really long time! I try to let my mind go blank as I do it and not to control it so much, so it’s kind of like a stream-of-consciousness… I try not to get in the way of the art making itself.”

Prints will be available for sale as well as the paintings themselves.

Rachael has previously shown her work at Ridge Street Coffee Co. in Glens Falls, where she resides, and aspires to exhibit in New York City.
