Rachel E Heberling is the Executive Director of Frontline Arts (formerly known as The Printmaking Center of New Jersey). She directs the operations, strategic direction, exhibitions, events, and membership for Frontline Arts. She is furthering our mission of becoming a less-toxic print and papermaking studio, using the latest research on innovative materials. For almost 5 years Rachel was the Printmaking Center’s Studio Program Manager (and Frontline Arts’ Studio Director), developing education programming, contract printing, studio operations, technical research and more. Rachel was previously Assistant Client Manager in package design at Haney, for Procter & Gamble accounts in Cincinnati, OH, while also a printmaking instructor at Tiger Lily Press. She ran open studio sessions, did contract printing, was on the board, and assisted in planning a statewide conference. In the past, she has been the printer for artist Jay Bolotin, as well as an editioning intern at Island Press, Washington University, St Louis. Previously Rachel was graduate administrative associate for Ann Hamilton and Michael Mercil at The Ohio State University in Columbus where she received an M.F.A. in printmaking in 2011.
Rachel’s work has been exhibited internationally in venues such as the National Arts Club, NYC; Hoofprint Workshop, Chicago, IL; King St Stephen Museum, Székesfehérvár, Hungary; Roy G Biv, Columbus, OH; and The Corcoran Gallery Museum, DC. Her artwork is influenced by growing up in a log home near the mining regions of Pennsylvania, as much of her work portrays obsolete technology, abandoned industry and vintage advertisements. She also creates prints to raise awareness on Women’s Health issues, due to years of struggling with endometriosis.
