Rachel Wolfson Smith is one of Austin’s top emerging artists in 2018. Her large scale graphite drawings use imagery of cars, landscapes, and text to reconstruct memory and time. In three years in Austin, she has shown at grayDUCK Gallery, CoLAB Demo gallery, Women & Their Work, completed a public art project and residency with the Austin Fire Department, and is one of eight artists selected for The Contemporary Museum’s 2018 Crit Group.
Her 2016 solo show “Midas” gained wide-spread acclaim from the art and motorcycle communities with features in publications such as Glass Tire, The Austin American Statesman, the documentary film “Oil in the Blood”, and inclusion in the International Journal of Motorcycle Studies’ 2018 show at Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art in Southern California.
Wolfson holds an MFA in painting from Indiana University and a BFA in painting from Maryland Institute College of Art.
