hand-painted silk by textile artist René D. Shoemaker
Exhibition at the Monroe Art Guild, : May 4- May 27, 2010
Reception: Saturday, May 8, 2010 4-6pm
Come explore Monroe from an "outsider's" view. After walking through downtown Monroe, discovering the beauty, texture, and architectural history of the town, René then drew what she saw, and "painted" the designs on the silk - so that she could share it back with the citizens of Monroe.
By day, René is the librarian and gallery director at the College of Environment & Design at the University of Georgia. Her work with landscape architects, historic preservationists, and planners, informs her artistic view of the world. Her work represents experience, movement through space and an appreciation for historic architecture and architectural details. She holds a degree in fabric design from UGA, and an MLIS for University of South Carolina. Monroe Art Guild
