Rachel Hayes : Straight Tipsy at ADA gallery , Opening September 4, 2015 (RICHMOND, VA)

Rachel Hayes is a VCU MFA Painting grad (2006) living at the moment in Roswell, NM. and has shown at ADA since 2005.

Rachel will be showing new works created while at the Roswell Residency during the past year. Intensely colorful, hand sewn, collaged fabric and plastic are the hallmarks of Rachel Hayes' work. WIth a devotion to these materials and her process, this fiber-based sculptor/painter touches on traditional craftwork such as quilting and stained glass while radiating an unbridled play of light created by the funky sewn fusion of these materials and her own gleeful spirit.
