Rochelle MacEachern displays artwork in New York
Local artist Rochelle MacEachern is getting global recognition for something she is passionate about.
She has recently joined an international community of artists. The organization is called See.Me, and it is a web-based international community of over 700,000 artists, photographers, fashion creators, musicians and more. These artists have banded together sharing and celebrating what they love. Social networking is a current phenomenon that is working wonders for artists all over the world, allowing them to expose their work to a much larger audience.
See.Me is also a social network that helps artists display their work, make connections with other artists and also gain support from friends. They have the opportunity to earn funding, and also to win awards and grants.
This summer MacEachern travelled to New York for The Story of The Creative. She and other members of the See.Me community were there representing over 100 different nations. She had the opportunity to display her work with an exquisite collection that featured a diverse range of mediums, styles, influences, and inspirations. The Exhibition Space was located at Long Island City, NY, and the show ran for seven weeks and ended September 10th.
MacEachern began the process by creating a profile on the See.Me website and became a member by paying a small fee. When you become a member you are eligible to enter into various contests that include being part of international digital exhibitions. Three of her photographs were chosen to be part of The Story of The Creative show in New York and were in rotation with other artists from around the globe.
“It was a very surreal and very exciting experience to actually go and visit the show and see my work,” says MacEachern.
She has also recently found out that she will have one of her pieces included in a separate exhibit in New York called “Creatives Rising” on October 5th at the same venue as The Story of The Creative. MacEachern is also waiting on the results from the jury selection for a showcase in Paris which will happen in mid-October.
See.Me’s mission is to support the passion of the artist: what they create, what they do and what they aspire to be. They have done this by building a platform to support the artist, from the simple to the sublime, from the artistic to the awe-inspiring. They enable artists to share the best of what they do and to also gain recognition and support within the vibrant international community that is See.Me.
Much of her inspiration comes from the place where she was born and raised, right here in Inverness County. With the incredible sunsets and mile-long beaches she certainly has plenty to work with. This is evident immediately when you see her fearless use of colour in her work.
Very soon she will also find out if her artwork will be on display in Paris, France. Taking her work to this international stage is an incredible opportunity for this talented artist and undoubtedly only the beginning for MacEachern.
