Rachel Kirk Artwork on Exhibit at Thigpen Gallery

Rachel Kirk artworkThe Volunteer State Community College Thigpen Library Gallery will display the work of Nashville-based artist Rachel Kirk in January and February. 

“My drawing process is guided by inconsistency and imperfection, the very things that make me human,” said Kirk. “In order to develop a deeper understanding of my surroundings, I strive to mimic those patterns that I find so mystifying. I begin by emulating a specific pattern or concept, employing a system of deliberate mark making that celebrates, and is often guided by, the prospect of chance.”

Kirk earned her MFA in drawing and painting in 2004 from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She is an adjunct professor of art at O'More College of Design and The Art Institute of Tennessee - Nashville. Her abstract artwork has shown locally and nationally. She currently lives in East Nashville with her husband.

The exhibit will be on display through February 21. It is free and open to the public from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and closed on Sunday. The Library will be closed on January 20 for the MLK, Jr. holiday. The Thigpen Library is located on the Vol State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. For more information call 615-230-3201.
