Rachel Beamer completed her MFA in Photographic and Electronic Media from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2012. In her photographic images, Rachel Beamer explores how memory is embedded in surface and space. The fleeting qualities of subjects suggest traces of movement throughout dimensions. The images balance at transitions between interior and exterior thresholds and changes from one state of matter to another, asking where one space ends and another begins. Recent exhibitions include Syncope at Heights Arts, The Peer Show at the Cleveland Print Room and the Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry Art Show at the Carnegie Gallery (Columbus, Ohio). Beamer has received four artist grants from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), and has been featured in Art Beat on NPR Morning Edition for the exhibition Instantaneous: Re-mixing old school instant photography in a digital era.
