Inaugural Opening of Squeaky Wheel’s Storefront Gallery featuring Rachel Rampleman: Baby’s On Fire

Not only did Squeaky Wheel land new digs with a micro cinema inside the Market Arcade building, the organization also managed to pick up a coveted storefront gallery that faces Main Street. It’s a win-win for the city and the cultural institution. The film and media arts center now has access to create alluring window displays that reflect the exhibiting subject matter, and Main Street gets spruced up with yet another captivating window display.

The first artist to occupy the Main Street gallery space is Rachel Rampleman, who has constructed a multi-media display, slated to “go live” this Saturday. Rampleman’s work will also be screening inside the micro cinema.

Click here to get a glimpse into the world of Rampleman. What you will find is a psychedelic, surreal, emotion series of works that examine the worlds of emotionally charged female characters. Rampleman manages to get into the minds of her subjects, as she examines a wide range of alter personalities that have shed some sort of burdensome layer to become who they are (or want to be, if even for a day).

“This is a landscape where sexual braggadocio, heavy-metal rock stardom, or muscularity have become characteristic of feminine prowess.” – Squeaky Wheel

“Exceptionally interesting…” “Wonderfully bizarre…” “Certainly ready for prime time…” – Ken Johnson, New York Times
