First Friday Artist Reception, Orangery with Rachael Van Dyke

Join Rachael Van Dyke as Art & Light Gallery hosts an artist reception as part of First Fridays on February 3 from 6-8pm EST to celebrate “Orangery.”


Drawing inspiration from the world that surrounds her, Rachael Van Dyke is a mid-career artist creating abstract work inspired by living off the grid in the Blue Ridge Mountains and traveling to artist residencies across the world.


For an upcoming solo exhibition at Art & Light Gallery, Van Dyke is drawing inspiration from her recent artist residency in Denmark. The exhibition, entitled “Orangery,” originated on a bicycle after observing small glass orangeries alongside the homes she passed, which appeared to be warm and inviting sanctuaries.


Van Dyke’s new collection will be released through Art & Light Gallery at 10am EST on January 31, online or in the gallery and conclude on February 25, at 4pm EST. The exhibit can be viewed and purchases made at the Art & Light Gallery website.
