Fabricated is an all-media exhibition featuring “wearable art," which refers to individually designed pieces of handmade clothing or jewelry created as fine or expressive art. While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement. It is open to all artists nationally and internationally.

You can view Rachel’s work in numerous publications such as Unexpected Pleasures published by Rizzoli Publications, Jewel Book published by Stichtingkunst Boek, Humor in Craft published by Schiffer Publishing and many of the Lark Books Showcase 500 series books.
