Featured Artists

Effingham Public Library is pleased to welcome core member of The Vault Arts Collective, Tuscola, IL, photographer, Rachel Ray.

Rachel began her adventure in photography just 7 years ago. Inspired by nature and the aging process, Rachel often turns her camera to things and places that most of us would dismiss as trivial. Her photography encourages us to slow down and be transported into places of calm, nostalgia, intrigue and natural beauty.

Rachel was raised in a naturally artistic and musical family. All her immediate relatives have a history of either painting or writing.
Most recently, Rachel’s work has won awards from the Champaign County Camera Club and the photo “Foggy River” was the first place winner of the Effingham Art & Photography Show. Her work “The Last Song” also received the Artist Choice Award at the Effingham Art & Photography Show in April 2016.
