Over two years ago, I submitted my artwork for a potential exhibition at Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, AL. With their packed schedule, their committee reviewed my artwork and in January, invited me to exhibit my artwork this September. The wait is common as galleries are often booked way in advance, and it was worth it!
I am excited to present my solo exhibition entitled, Original Spin at Hammond Hall Gallery, Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, AL, September 3-24, 2020. It has been wonderful working with Morgan Worsham, Gallery Coordinator over the past year. Under Covid 19 circumstances, viewing is by appointment only at www.jsu.edu/art/hamond-gallery.html
I am fascinated by the richness of science, spirituality, philosophy and nature and how they align with self-actualization, universal connectedness and responsibility to the health of each other and our planet. As I explore these narratives, I create ethereal, other-worldly environments that have stimulated creative conversation and contemplation by viewers and collectors.
Stay tuned! I will be posting more information here and on https://www.facebook.com/reneerey/, https://twitter.com/ReneeReyArt, https://www.linkedin.com/in/ren%C3%A9e-rey-b1330b9/ and https://www.instagram.com/reneereyart/.
Please contact me and let me know when you are going to the show, and after you have seen it!

I am thrilled to have been accepted into the five week Summer Painting Residency at the School of Visual Arts, NYC. It was an intensive experience where we had individual studios in which we could take a deep dive into our art practice and experiment with new concepts. Fabulous faculty including Steve DeFrank, Andrea Champlin, Danica Phelps, Gregory Coates and Peter Hristoff, accomplished artists in their own right, shared their knowledge and advised us on methodologies and other artists who could expand our discovery. Artist presentations by Dara Birnbaum and Alicia Grullon, and a tour of DC Moore Gallery by Peter Luke Colon, Associate Director, were energizing experiences.
My artwork flourished in this setting. I investigated concepts of the sublime, memory, rebirth, and the mythological at intersection of alternative, temporal and transcendent dimensions. I came away with new ideas to expand upon and look forward to realizing them in the coming months.
Please read this article about how I express my unique vision in my series of paintings and mixed media artwork concerning the planet's health and our well-being.
I am thrilled that the All Woman group exhibition at Maison 10, 260 5th Ave., New York, NY is extended through June 7, 2019. You can see eight of my paintings and mixed-media artwork in the show along with art by other wonderful artists. Art collectors can privately view other of my pieces. Contact Tom Blackie and Henri Myers for more information at the gallery.
My artwork is rooted in time and connection. I explore the binary concepts of sensual and sensory beauty and intellectual and philosophical beauty. In my series entitled, Democratized Ecosystems, I investigate the links between biodiversity, cultural diversity and equality. See more of my in depth talk in the video section of this website. My artwork is at Maison 10, 260 5th Ave., NYC February 17-April 26, 2019.
You can still see my painting, 12 Mg: Sustaining at Verum Ultimum Gallery, Portland, Oregon through the end of January 2019. Collectors, please contact gallery.
