Meet the Artspace Team: Rachael McNerney
You have had the opportunity to travel abroad. What are some of the favorite places you’ve visited and why?
Turkey for its energy, and intricate colorful handicrafts. India for its inviting spirit and ability to bombard the senses. I enjoy any place with waterfalls and kind people that introduce you to something unusual everyday. Australia for its beaches and active atmosphere. Any island for its fresh fruit. Europe for the cobblestone streets and marvelous architecture. Kauai for the environment and untouched nature.
What attracted you to the opportunity to join the team at Artspace?
Artspace is unique in that it offers events and activities that involve the community. This improves the quality for life for citizens in the area who participate in the offerings. The social entrepreneurship aspect of the organization and the opportunity to explore creative potential are most exciting.
What would you like a visitor to Artspace to know about you or the organization when they walk in to the gallery?
There is more to Artspace than “a day at the gallery”. Artspace gives those involved a voice and truly empowers the city by offering programs assisting people who are looking to develop their creativity.
You have a night off and friends in from out of town? What’s your go to place to show off the area?
Any beach! Hammonasset Beach State Park, East Wharf, or Watch Hill…
