RAW NATURAL BORN ARTISTS
Rachel Mars July 2017

 

I've been asked to join the group for the upcoming RAW event F I X A T E.  RAW is an independent arts organization for artists, by artists.  They are providing independent artists the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity.  RAW ventures to provide the platform for these artists to be seen, heard, and loved. 

This is a large alternative arts event that includes visual art, film, fashion design, music, performance art, hair and makeup artistry, and photography.  There will be 50 + creatives participating in the event on July 27th.  It's fun and exciting, I hope you can make it!  Tickets can be purchased through this link, please be sure to select me as your artist!

HEAR ME ROAR
Rachel Mars April 2017

 

There's been a lot happening in the world and I feel it's a good time to remind ourselves of what we can accomplish. There are many talented, creative women in our communities and you may have no idea they are even there.  Hear Me Roar is an opportunity for women to support other women in a positive, creative environment.  These events will showcase local artisans while bringing in customers to woman-owned businesses around New England.  We are also hoping to have female musicians, poets, and other talented women participate for a well-rounded empowering night for all.  Keep an eye out for future dates in your area and be sure to stop by the merch tables to pick up a tshirt, proceeds will be donated to NOW the National Organization for Women!  

I am woman. Hear me roar.

FREE E-BOOK
Rachel Mars September 2016

 

 

Guess who's dabbled in a little flash fiction writing!  Last year a group of indie authors and myself put out a couple of free e-books that you can still get online.  The first one was a horror-romance mashup where each story portrays one of the seven deadly sins.  The second was a fantasy-noir mashup for each of the seven virtures! If you're feeling curious about how these might work, check out the link below on smashwords for a quick and fun little read!

I'd like to give a big thank you to everyone who came out, and to those who support us artists and help make events like this happen.  We truly appreciate your work, the time you put in, and your enthusiasm!

SAVVOR ON THE PHANTOM GOURMET

Rachel Mars December 2014

 

 

On Saturday, December 6th at 11 AM The Phantom Gourmet aired an episode featuring Savvor Restaurant and Lounge, Boston.  It's great to see these guys doing so well and I gotta say that some of their dishes have put me right in my happy place.  Mmm mmm good. 

 

If you missed it the first time around you can watch it here.  Keep your eyes open for my work! 

 

THE ART OF DRINKS

Rachel Mars October 2014

 

 

I've been asked to do a series of images on the exterior of Good Harbor Liquors in Gloucester, MA.  This ongoing project has been a blast, working outdoors on a beautiful day beats any desk job.

 

If you're driving down Main Street in Gloucester keep your eyes open for these, you can't miss them!  But, also keep your eyes on road and drive safely...hopefully you're all good at multitasking.

THE GILDED ROSE

I'm loving these hair flowers!  Each petal is cut by hand, shaped, and glued.  Every piece is different and original!  The next step is to get some photos taken and list them in my shop!  Available very soon on www.etsy.com/shop/gildedroseboutique!

15 FOOT CANVAS STRETCHING

Rachel Mars December 2013

 

 

How hard can it be right? Yikes!  Building and transporting a 15x4 foot canvas was a huge project.  This is for an abstract piece that will be going into the Savvor dining area.  Big thanks to Quinn Ramini for his help with this one.  My stapling hand is hurting!

 

More photos to come on this work.

 

MURAL FOR SAVVOR BOSTON

Rachel Mars November 2013

 

I'm almost done with the mural for Eddy at Savvor.  This has been an exciting project to take on and I'm really looking forward for this place to get up and running.  Whenever I pop in to do some painting, these guys have made tons of progress with updates to the space.  It's really been a great thing to see unfold.  They'll be open soon, stop by and check them out!  Just a few finishing touches to go!

CUP OF CHEER
Rachel Mars November 2013

I've been hitting the ground running with these new teacup candles.  I've got some great scents that you don't find everywhere and am really loving mixing scents to come up with something people will enjoy.  I'm listing all these super cute teacup candles on my etsy shop for BlueMars' upcycled household items.  I hope everyone loves them as much as I do!

 

Favorite scents so far are Sugary Spruce, Tomato Vine, Hot Chocolate, and Eucalyptus Lavender!
