Art Show Corvallis

This past fall and winter I’ve been pretty quiet, hard at work in the studio creating a new series work. So it is with great pleasure that I announce a new art show featuring my newest series and the work of the talented local artist Alexandra Schaefers. The show is at Studio262 (in the Madison building), in the new and expanded space.

Drop by and soak in the poetry and prose and paint!

Below is a sneek peek of just a few of the pieces in the show…hope you enjoy!

Journal Spread: Messages Amidst Mess

RachelUrista_ArtJournal_MessagesJournal_CreaturesVisitCLOSEUP_RachelUrista2013

Playing in the paint…dab, smear, splatter. Getting emotions out on paper, releasing the days stress. What first appears as a mess, sharpens. Images start to emerge. Narratives develop naturally. Messages surface, stop and reflect. Sometimes when emotions and life seem messy, there are messages for us to find within them.
