Rachel Gibney, LC, Jr. Assoc. IALD Promoted to Associate

Available Light announces that Rachel Gibney of the New York City Studio has been promoted to associate in the firm. Rachel, a native Arizonian, first arrived at Available Light as a designer in 2013. Since joining the studio, she has contributed to award-winning projects such as the National Archives Rotunda Renovation, the FDR Presidential Library, the National Postal Museum, the Museum of Alabama's Alabama Voices exhibit, and Science Research, Lab, & Teaching Facility complexes for both Amherst College and Skidmore.

In 2011, Gibney received her degree in Theatrical Lighting Design from the University of Arizona; while there, she got her first taste of professional lighting design by freelancing for Arizona Classical Theatre, Arizona Reparatory Theatre, and Arizona Opera Theatre. From the Southwest she migrated across the country to the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, where she served as a lighting designer and lighting supervisor for three seasons. Gibney is both NCQLP certified and an active member of the IALD.

"I first met Rachel at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, I was immediately impressed with her rare ability to filter through complex project requirements and, in an instant, cut through the clutter to unleash key design criteria," says Steven Rosen, IALD, Available Light's principal and creative director, "In her short tenure at Available Light, Rachel has dedicated herself to lighting the world better and smarter, we are very happy to see her succeed."
