|New York artist visits Tenacre this morning|
Artist Rachel von Roeschlaub Maniatis visited Tenacre this morning to speak to the school community and work with students in art class. Her encaustic artwork is currently exhibited in the Tenacre Art Gallery (TAG). In addition to working with wax, she also has created many paintings–all of them painted with dots.
A self-taught artist, Ms. von Roeschlaub Maniatis has exhibited her work at art galleries in New York, Boston, Maine, and Washington, DC. After a brief career in professional tennis, Rachel studied chemistry at the University of Montana and received an M.S. in organic chemistry from the University of Oregon. Rachel’s passion for science and art intertwined in 2003 when her whimsical acrylic paintings of biological themes were featured on the covers of leading industry magazines and journals. Rachel's most recent series of work incorporates fingerprints personally provided by Nobel Prize recipients, entertainers and philanthropists. A portrait of the subject is layered over the fingerprint, leaving the viewer with both a biological mark and a more subjective expression of the person within Rachel's characteristically vibrant canvas.
