Rachel Przewozny: Solo Exhibition
Opening Reception: June 28, 6-8PM
On View until July 20, 2019
Rachel Przewozny was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. Although she did not major in art, she had always had a profound love for it and being creative in any way she could. It wasn’t until Rachel had been diagnosed with breast cancer that art came back full force into her world. She found that it was an amazing form of therapy during the most difficult time of her life.
Rachel focuses on fluid acrylic painting; she found a connection with the process of fluid art because she can control every part of the process until the paint hits the canvas. She guides paint as much as she can but once she moves the canvas the paint takes on a life of its own. She feels that this is very similar to her treatment for cancer. Everything is very well planned out, but at the end of the day your body will react just as it is meant to, always creating something beautiful.
In mid 2018, Rachel proposed a wellness program to Roswell Park Cancer Institute, which is where she receives her treatment. The program would be called “ Paint Night for Patients.” She wanted to be able to teach cancer patients, survivors and their caretakers how to create fluid art. The program launched in October 2018 and it has been a great success. She holds a paint night every month rotating between Roswell Park Cancer Institute as well as The Breast Cancer Network of WNY in Depew, NY. This evening out for patients allows them to forget about everything they are going through and focus on creating something beautiful. A portion of all proceeds generated during her show will be donated to this program.
