Rachel Crockett Smith
Artist-in-Residence June 21 through July 30, 2021
Rachel Crockett Smith is the PBF's first local resident! During her time as a resident, she will be working on a series of large abstract paintings inspired by the PBF’s studio space. Says Smith, “[the paintings] will focus on bold color and playful, gestural mark-making. This residency gives me the physical and mental space to create and push myself in new ways.”
Smith is an Arizona native and Brigham Young University graduate, who shares her home in the Shenandoah Valley with her husband, four young daughters, and two dogs. An abstract artist whose work in oils and acrylics is informed by color, Smith has received multiple juror’s awards and has exhibited across the country.
