Craft beer may be all the rage today in Toronto, but the city has a brewing tradition that began over two centuries ago. Through artifacts, artworks, archival images and videos, you can explore this rich legacy in the Market Gallery’s new exhibition. The story begins with tiny breweries established in the early 1800s, then covers the scaling-up of the industry in Victorian times, the impact of Prohibition, the rise of Canada’s macrobrewers in the first half of the 20th century, and ends with a look at the microbrewery movement since 1985 and contemporary craft-beer culture.
Racheal’s engaging image of Ren Navarro, founder of Beer. Diversity. is featured in this well crafted exhibition.
Bata Shoe Museum
As the country celebrates the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation this year, the Bata Shoe Museum and Canada’s Walk of Fame are teaming up to mark this important milestone with a special exhibition showcasing the footwear of notable Canadian inductees who have contributed to our national culture in the fields of arts, literature, athletics, science, politics and entertainment.
Racheal’s captivating image of Catherine O’Hara as Lola Heatherton – with partner in crime Bobby Bittman (aka Eugene Levy) – is featured in this unique exhibition.
For 5 years Racheal created a gallery series of rehearsal and behind the scenes images called The Other Side of the Stage.
The series included powerful images and rare glimpses of the work that goes in to executing seemingly effortless productions such as Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna, The Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre’s latest work, The Eifman Ballet’s Anna Karenina, and the Charlottetown Festival’s Evangeline. The work was presented through a series of curated galleries.
Though based in New York, they were displayed worldwide on a digital gallery platform. Her work proved to be extremely popular and averaged 2,000,000 visitors per gallery.
This was a mixed gallery presentation of the work done by both Racheal and her Square Circle students. Created and edited by Racheal, it was on display at the Centre For Social Innovation and images from the show have been requested by the Slaight Foundation.
Racheal’s work with Installation A furthered what she’d created with A Greener Lane: Seeing the Beauty in a Landfill, and was a dynamic look at the dichotomy between naturally conceived environment. It was presented as an outdoor gallery at the Evergreen Brickworks.
