Rachel O'Connor, Curator

Rachel OíConnorís love of art began around the age of five, when she would rearrange her 100 box set of Crayola Crayons on a weekly basis.  Her passions were fostered through Cumberland Valley High Schoolís art classes, where she found her own artistic voice, creating a series of mixed media pieces revolving around impoverished inner city communities.  Since then, she obtained an Associates Degree in Fine Arts at HACC , a BA in Art History at Messiah and is currently a Masterís candidate at Savannah College of Art and Design.
