These are some of the art organizations Rachel is involved in and supports:
The Art League in Alexandria, VA is a multifaceted visual arts organization that meets its mission through its gallery, fine art school, art supply store, and arts-outreach programs. The watercolor classes are very popular! Rachel has taught for the Art League since 1996.
The Potomac Valley Watercolorists is a juried nonprofit organization of over 200 artists mostly located in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC and Delaware that seeks to promote the art and excellence of watercolor painting. The organization exhibits throughout the greater Washington, DC area and regularly offers workshops with nationally recognized instructors. Rachel has been active in the organization since the mid-1990’s.
Many visual art organizations award “signature membership” to those member artists who have demonstrated a high level of achievement in their creative field.
Rachel has achieved this honor in several national watercolor societies:
A bit closer to home are her signature memberships in Southern, Baltimore, Virginia, Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Watercolor Societies, all organizations enthusiastic about promoting this sometimes elusive but always rewarding medium.
