February Fellow Rachel Gray takes over the AIRIE Nest Gallery for a week-long live drawing event, culminating in a reception and artist talk, Sunday, February 9, 2020, 1-3pm.
Rachel Gray is an artist based in Omàmiwininìwag Territory/ Ottawa. Her interdisciplinary practice is rooted in an interest in drawing. She is moved by drawing’s capacity to facilitate communication outside of written or spoken language. Her work stems from memory, and is often an attempt to retrospectively close the gap between herself and her subject. She holds a BA in English Literature from King’s College and a BFA from the University of Ottawa. In 2017, she launched the first section of her graphic novel Jess, and is continuing this project as an artist in residence at the Ottawa School of Art.
