Open Mic Night @ the Half Moon Cafe

Rachel Yoder: PA Dutch Folk Art

Rachel Yoder, a PA Dutch folk artist with deep familial roots in the Oley Valley, will exhibit her work at Clay on Main’s gallery from January 27 to February 17.  The opening, on Sunday, January 27 from 4-6pm, is free and open to the public.  Viewers can expect to see brightly colored painting of abstracted figures and patterns derived from plants and animals in a bold graphic style, often painted on wood.  Her work is focused on contemporary interpretations of fraktur style painting and portraits of der Belsnickel.  She has exhibited at Tyler School of Art, Kutztown University and The Hex Factory gallery.  Yoder explains, “Clay on Main is where I have always envisioned my work being able to shine; especially since my family is out of Oley, and it’s a very special and sacred place to me.”
