“In the Grand Scheme of life intellect, emotion, desire and pursuits are but threads of the fabric of life. I become the conductor directing a symphony of colors and shapes that weave the fabric that represents my life as an artist. May our symphonies nourish our spirit now and forever.”
– John Rachell
John Rachell attended Polk Junior College (Winter Haven, Florida), Palm Beach Junior College (Lake Worth, Florida, A.A. 1974) and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois (B.F.A. 1977). An accomplished artist, John has exhibited his sculpture and paintings in group and individual shows around the United States.
John’s prolific artistry has not been diminished, even after suffering two strokes which left him paralyzed on his right side. John states, “Life is so marvelous that no matter what the limitations are, you can expand the manifestations of the spirit.” John tells us, “My therapy tool is a brush”. An artist by trade, John took stock of his strengths. John returned to his passion of painting, teaching himself to paint with his non-dominant hand, which had not been affected by the stroke.
O S G S:
Art runs in the veins of gallery curators Evelyn and Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla. OSGS is the embodiment of their love of art and for sharing the work of talented artists. On any given day, a visit to their gallery sends guests crossing paths with a variety of works in many mediums that include modern-art paintings, sculptures, and functional home wares. The team also does their own creating inside the studio: custom framing is available with a large number of options for materials, glass, matting, and mounting.
