SCOTT EBERHARDT (Media Department Chair and English teacher) and his dynamo wife, RACHEL ZNEROLD (CW Artist-in-Residence, painter, fashion designer, dancer and performance artist) are taking in the sights and sounds of the Amazon. They are on the road in Ecuador, making their base camp in Vilcabamba, home to Rachel’s erstwhile sister and frequent performance art partner, Lula Mae, and her videographer husband, Talbot.
Rachel and Lula Mae have appeared together in San Francisco many times at The Yerba Buena Nite Out, SFMoma New Media Lounge, Rickshaw, and Dance Mission, and also in Colorado during Rachel’s student residency at the Eldorado Springs Art Center.
Aside from the Central American reunion, Scott and Rachel have their eyes wide open for art markets and adventure. There is also talk of a collaborative video project, which is still being hammered out.
As if their individual and collective plates prior to their departure from California in mid-June, weren’t full enough! Scott finished recording drums and vocals for the next album by his band “Slowness” while Rachel successfully produced and installed exhibitions of her work in both the 111 Minna and Public Works galleries.
They were last seen in California in the small town of 29 Palms at the Cactus Compound, Scott hard at work on new content for the media department for the upcoming re-design of the SOTA website, while bikini-clad Rachel put brush to canvas under the hot desert sun. A friend’s wedding brought them to the Mojave, where they hope to return for the early winter meteor showers and the Morongo Basin Open Studio Tours.
