Resident on Display – Rachelle Knight @ Gale Center of History & Culture

 Rachelle Knight

“I am a self-taught acrylic painter. I have been interested in art all of my life and frequently use painting as a mini vacation for my mind and soul. I love to create colorful paintings that brighten rooms and spirits. The biggest compliment I have been given is that my painting brings a smile to their face each time they walk into the room.

My hope for my paintings is that they are viewed as “Escape-Scapes” (instead of landscapes, cityscapes, etc.) – escapes for resetting your soul. When someone looks at one of my paintings, my wish is that they are taken away—even for a few seconds – to another place: a place filled with color, wonder, and happiness.”

Show Dates

October 27 – November 27
at the Gale Center

November 27  – December 23
