In the Cooler:
Reading the Landscape: Rachel Davis

November 9th — December 30th, 2018

Opening Reception, November 9th, 5 - 9 p.m.


Interdisciplinary artist, Rachel Davis, does not restrict herself to naturalistic documentation but rather exaggerates, alters, and abstracts imagery to express her response to the natural landscape, forming what she calls “tactile landscapes” in the form of tapestries.  

Rachel Davis received her B.A. from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh in 1992 and her M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1997. Her paintings have been exhibited in national venues including the Holter Museum of Fine Art, Helena, Montana; Evergreen Galleries, and the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters in Madison, WI. Rachel was the Artist-in-Residence in the Textiles Department at the Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago, Il from September 2017 through August 2018.
