Rachel Moore received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University and her Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she concentrated on sculpture, design, and collaborative work with a focus on socially and environmentally responsible projects.
Whether through larger community or environmental projects, or through sculpture, photography, drawings, and video, Moore explores the complexity of relationships within cultures and subcultures, and within the environment, both built and natural, as affected by human activity.
She is a co-founder of Spoke, an exhibition and event space in Chicago (2008-2011), and was a Fulbright Fellow in Greece (2009-2010). Moore has exhibited her work in museums and galleries nationally and internationally including Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, TinT Gallery, and DYNAMO (Thessaloniki, Greece); Figge Art Museum (Iowa, USA); Muskegon Museum (Michigan, USA); Pamil Fine Art Gallery (San Juan, Puerto Rico); BCA (Vermont, USA). She has received grants from Seattle Art Museum (PONCHO Award), Artist Trust in Seattle, Vermont Arts Council; and has been an artist-in-residence twice at both Vermont Studio Center and Pilchuck Glass School. She was featured on Art21’s “Inside the Artist’s Studio” and is represented by Traver Gallery, Seattle, WA and Stewart Gallery, Boise, ID.
