Rachelle Reichert creates drawings and objects with elemental materials. Through material investigation she connects these earthbound materials – such as salt – to human social dynamics and ecological concerns. Reichert lives and works in San Francisco. She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Select exhibitions include the German Consulate in New York City, SFMOMA Artist Gallery, Southern Exposure, and Mills College Art Museum. Reichert was awarded residencies at Planet Labs, Can Serrat in Spain, and grants from the Susan Pilner Money for Women Artist Fund and the Russek Foundation. Her work has been reviewed and published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Make Magazine, and New American Paintings. Reichert has presented her artwork at the California Climate Change Symposium, San Francisco State of the Estuary Conference, the American Geophysical Union Meeting, and currently holds a Research Ambassadorship from Planet’s Labs to create climate-related artwork. She earned her MFA from Mills College in Oakland, CA and a BFA from Boston University.
