Gifts of Art presents Michigan Ridges & Valleys: Acrylic on Canvas
Rachael Van Dyke
Rachael Van Dyke is eager to search for shapes of color and light that fall on the planes of the ridges and valleys of the land. These organic movements are revealed in her landscape paintings through juxtaposing patterns and colors of the farmlands and vineyards of Michigan. She received her Masters of Arts in Education degree from Kendall College of Art and Design and has taught K-12th grade art for 13 years. She is the recipient of three fellowships including the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund, Les Tapies Art Teacher Fellowship in Southern France and the Teacher Institute of Contemporary Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Van Dyke is represented by the Ann Arbor Art Center, as well as other galleries throughout Michigan.
