Event: Live Painting from 6pm to 9pm

Rachel Kerwin’s paintings seek to complicate the idea that nature is merely a scenic backdrop for our lives.  “Anyone who’s watched the Discovery channel will tell you that nature is also dangerous, chaotic, and destructive. I find that fascinating – when beauty can arise from survival.”  By exploring this tension, Rachel’s depictions of flocks of birds and billowing smoke reflect the duality of chaos and grace she finds inherent in being human.

Rachel has been painting for the past 7 years with shows in New York, Chicago, and the greater DC area.  Her work was featured during the LUMEN8Anacostia art festival and will continue to be on display at 2208 Martin Luther King Ave above Vivid Solutions Print Lab through June 16. Rachel is extending a special 50% off pricing for all visitors to her
Temporium space.

On Friday, May 4th, Rachel will be painting live in her space from 6-9pm in conjunction with the opening receptions at Vivid Solutions and Honfleur Gallery.  Her work will be on display at 2208 Martin Luther King Avenue above Vivid Solutions.
