Photographer Rachel Phillips will present a talk on her work at Napa Valley College’s quarterly public lecture series, PhotoEye@NVC, on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public and will take place at Napa Valley College in Room 3706 in Napa.

Rachel began photography while completing her undergraduate degree at Skidmore College, graduating in 2005. Her work has been shown widely, including recent solo shows at Catherine Couturier Gallery in Houston and Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco. Her work has also been included in many group exhibitions, including shows at the Institute for Contemporary Art in San Jose, The Phoenix Art Museum, the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, Dina Mitrani Gallery in Miami, PhotoEye in Santa Fe, and Panopticon Gallery in Boston. Rachel's work has appeared in numerous publications, and in 2010, her series Field Notes was included in Photolucida's Critical Mass Top 50. Rachel was an artist-in-residence at RayKo Photo Center in summer 2014, culminating in a solo show. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, and in addition to art, she works from an 8x15 foot office built on a flatbed trailer teaching dyslexic and homeschooled children.

PhotoEye@NVC is a quarterly photo lecture series organized by the Napa Valley College Photography Department featuring in-person presentations by noted photographers and other contemporary image makers in which they are invited to share their ideas and artistic practices with students and the general public. The lecture series is produced with support from the Janice E. & Bernard Charlup Photography Endowment of the Napa Valley College Foundation.
