Currents of Nature is a mix of new works in abstract cut paper sculpture as well as installation works made from repurposed books, all inspired by elements of the natural world.
Please join me on Sunday June 30th, between 2pm to 4pm, for the opening reception of Currents of Nature. I will be in attendance and look forward to seeing you there. The exhibition continues at the Ranger Station Art Gallery until Sunday July 28th.

This is a really big deal to me but I seem to have forgotten to mention it anywhere, and its been live for weeks. I have a brand new online portfolio for the first time evah! The many different types of work I create, from portraits to paper, are all nicely organized and looking quite impressive together as a whole.
While this blog remains in wordpress the portfolio is built with Behance ProSite. I was really tired of my work looking bad in the half-assed galleries I’ve had on the blog for years, and really wanted something more professional looking.
I chose Behance because I use their free site to share my work with a larger creative community and the ProSite pulls my projects in from there. I like this aspect of having my work in multiple places at once. The interface is relatively easy to use and the templates are straightforward and simple enough to cleanly show off my work. Check it out as Behance ProSite is free to use until you choose to publish your site.
For your viewing pleasure, find this visual treasure trove of my work at portfolio.rachaelashe.com. Peruse at your leisure, and share it both freely and widely.

It’s the fortieth anniversary of the Craft Council of BC and in celebration they are having a whole series of shows around the province on the theme of 10,000 hours. I have one of my paper cut vessels in the show opening tonight at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby.
From the press release:
…Malcolm Gladwell identified 10,000 hours as the “magic number of greatness” in his book Outliers: The Story of Success. The artists featured in this exhibit are working towards 10,000 hours in their own expertise. They are intimately familiar with many aspects of their chosen materials –what they can and can’t do, where they can push them, as well as their metaphoric, communicative potential.
‘10,000 Hrs’ presents a wide variety of mediums from ceramics, to fibre, from jewellery to sculpture and installation work. The show runs from April 15th to April 30th, 2013.
