A studio where disciplines merge, focusing on art, design, and cultural projects.
Trained as a metalsmith, Rachel Reichert's work blurs the line between art, preservation, and community engagement. Having studied at the Oregon College of Art & Craft, Boise State University, and Penland School of Crafts, her work is influenced by cultural heritage, and the identity of place.
Reichert currently works as a studio artist, Cultural Sites Manager for the City of Boise's Department of Arts & History, and is Co-Founder of The Atlanta School, a small art and architecture school in Atlanta, Idaho. Studio R showcases personal and professional works supported both by Reichert and affiliate agencies.
