Renee Stramel: INDIGO Reflections Opening Reception

This event is no longer available.

We are joining Staunton’s First Friday with our very first monthly Featured Artist – RVA’s Renee Stramel.
Join Art Hive on Friday, September 1st, from 6 – 8 PM for the opening of Renee’s month-long show “Indigo Reflections” at Art Hive, in Staunton, VA.

In her “Indigo” series Renée Stramel seeks to recreate the look of Batik textiles while sidestepping conventional wax-resist techniques. Inspiration led to an innovative process: a reimagined wax resist process. The result is a heavily textured surface that reveals the hand of the artist while harkening back to the wax-resist tradition. The glazing media retains a bit of glossiness adding subtle sparkle and shine amidst the dark blue matte finish background. This series is then custom framed in beautiful maple wood frames to complement the richness of the indigo.
