JRenée

JRenée (b. 1965, New Orleans, La.) practices the technique of reverse glass painting. She has had solo exhibitions at Benedict College in Columbia, S.C., and the McKenna Museum of African-American Art and the International House Hotel, both in New Orleans. Her paintings have been in group exhibitions in New York City; Charleston, S.C.; Washington, DC, and New Orleans. JRenée’s work is in the collections of the Southern University of Louisiana in Baton Rouge; the W.E.B. DuBois Museum in Ghana; and the McKenna Museum of African-American Art. She holds a BFA from Xavier University of Louisiana, New Orleans, and lives in Lexington.

Statement of support:

JRenée is one of the best and most dedicated artists working in the state today.  She works in reverse glass painting, which dates back to ancient times but gained traction in this country in the 1990s. She is one of a handful of artists in the state working with this technique. Many years of dedication and perseverance have given JRenée an outstanding mastery of this medium.
