Rachel by Chase Westfall

This exhibit will take a wide-ranging look at the subject of mourning by investigating various expressions of loss and trauma through fictional and factional narratives.  Named for the archetype of the mourning mother (the biblical Rachel,) Westfall’s exhibition aims to create a space for considering loss without directly experiencing it.  “Rachel” will include recent painting, sculpture, print, photographic, and performance work.
