About Rachel Evans

Rachel Evans received her bachelor’s in art from Auburn University. From there, she went on to complete both an MFA and an MA from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her experiences with art, color, and painting extend well beyond those campuses, however. For her graduate work, she spent time interning at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York City, worked in the studio of Lesley Dill, a contemporary American artist, and also worked with the estate of the influential abstract artist Mildred Thompson right here in Atlanta.

Rachel has often taken an approach to her art that foregrounds the importance of place and natural settings. Her paintings often focus on regional rural and urban landscapes following the French tradition called “en plein air,” meaning “in open air.” That is, Rachel often composes her work in the very spaces she’s investigating, capturing, and re-imagining on the canvas.

About Amorphous: Cloudscapes

With this exhibition at Brickworks Gallery, Rachel applies her skills and techniques to the shifting, evolving, vaporous forms of clouds. As an artist, Rachel’s priority is to create evocative work that demonstrates the deft skill of her adept hands, and with this collection she investigates the ephemeral through natural clouds, clouds of smoke, and through the complex metaphor of cloud computing. The result is a body of work that is breathtaking, exciting, intriguing, and bursting with the vibrancy of a truly visionary artist.

Rachel has long been a treasure to the community. She serves as a volunteer art instructor with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, and she has also taught with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
