About Rachel Brask, visual artist
Rachel Brask is a contemporary abstract expressionist painter with impressionist tendencies. Her current work explores the sensation of looking through windows during torrential rains. Through these “Abstracted Rainy Moments” paintings, Brask seeks to show people a fresh perspective on rainy days. She has exhibited in solo exhibitions invitational and juried shows around New England, and recently made her international debut in Italy.
Brask has been an artist-in-residence at the Golden Apple Art Residency in Maine, Truro’s Castle Hill Center for the Arts Edgewood Farm on Cape Cod, and she was selected to be the very first artist of the pilot art residency program at the Tryon International Equestrian Center. She has received Best in Show for the “Autumn Rain” painting that inspired her current body of work. She has been honored to be selected for the Curatorial Mentorship Program and the Founders Award by Art League Rhode Island.
Rachel earned a B.A. in art from Houghton College, with concentrations in painting, graphic design & photography. When Brask is not in her studio painting, she spends her time doing graphic design, marketing, communications, photography, and sharing her love of art through teaching community classes and private art lessons. Her studio is located in East Providence, RI.
