Rachael Wren is a Brooklyn based painter whose atmospheric abstractions have their source in both landscape and memory. Her work explores the tension between structure and space, geometry and randomness, to create a sense of place where form and air mingle with each other. Rachael received a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and an MFA from the University of Washington. She has exhibited her work in numerous group shows throughout the US, and has had solo exhibitions at the University of Massachusetts and Providence College. Rachael was awarded the Julius Hallgarten Prize in 2006 from the National Academy Museum and an Aljira Fellowship in 2007. She has attended residencies at the Saltonstall Foundation, the Byrdcliffe Art Colony, Vermont Studio Center, and the Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Studies.  Rachael has been a visiting artist-in-resdience at the University of North Carolina and at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and has given lectures about her work at the Weatherspoon Art Museum, the Hartford Art School, Kutztown University, and Rhode Island College.
