Join Fairbanks Arts for a lecture with this year’s Spring Juried Exhibit juror, Rachelle Dowdy. Rachelle Dowdy's artwork is primarily made up of sculptural images of birds and animal-human hybrids. Combining organic materials, such as wood and fibers, with concrete, industrial resins and recycled materials like nails, disc blades, scrap steel and wood. The combinations of images and materials address contemporary issues of life in the north, while putting a spin on popular Alaskan wildlife and motifs.
As one of the co-founders of SoNot, a coalition of six visual artists, she organized numerous exhibitions throughout Alaska, including a series of One Night Art Stands set in alternative venues. SoNot’s final project was to curate Double XX, the first comprehensive look at contemporary women artists in Alaska, exhibited in 2003 at the Fairbanks Arts Association Bear Gallery. Rachelle currently lives and works in Ester, Alaska.
