Gallery 491 exhibit opening

  • Vault491 491 Bloomfield Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

Gallery491 is excited to welcome Rachael Grochowski and announce the opening of her show MOMENTS. Rachael is a partner and friend of the Bravitas Group and she and her firm, RHG A + D, designed the splendid interiors for Vault491.

Constant exploration and experimentation fuel Rachael’s creative work, from her painting and sculpture to her furniture designs and hand sewn art. Her pieces are physical and sensory, combining a love of texture and an unexpected use of materials, as in her wire and torn paper art or her work involving recycled clothing fused with building supplies. Throughout her art, Rachael also invites the viewer to experience her own meditative moments or unfiltered emotions: a collection of small drawings are from a notebook Rachael carried for a year, as she paused to record, reflect, and discharge energy. Paintings that seem off balance can become balanced upon further contemplation; other works are an explosion of motion, color, and texture or evoke the layers of our life experiences. Her work with wool felt is at once clean cut and organic, with stitching inspired by the wild grasses of the Midwest.
