This event has ended.

SEEN/UNSEEN unites two bodies of work by Gerri Rachins in her first New York exhibition The SEEN part of the show, in the Main Gallery, features six paintings from Rachins’ recent POPROCK series.The UNSEEN portion, in the Project Room, features six paintings on panels, titled M80s.They are rooted in work the artist began in the late 1970’s, recently rediscovered, and reworked with a blowtorch. Though distinctive in form and mood, the two series reflect the artist’s fascination with the natural world and how we perceive it. They also show her flaunting art-historical tradition, playing with the boundaries between painting and collage, using materials unexpectedly, and infusing her work with her a sense of alchemy. Gerri Rachins has been a faculty member for over 16 years at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts and also taught at Massachusetts College of Art & Design for 13 years. Rachins received a Master of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, a Bachelor of Fine Arts from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA, and also studied at The New York Studio School. Rachins’ artworks, are part of private and public collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Danforth Art Museum, Fidelity Investments Corporate Art Collection and others throughout the United States. Her paintings, drawings, and mixed-media collages are represented in the Boston area by Mobilia Gallery in Cambridge, MA.
