Item Description

Hand-dyed silk chiffon jacket by Albuquerque artist Renee Brainard Gentz.

Renee was born in Albuquerque, and grew up in California. She received her art degree from San Jose State University and has done post-graduate work at the University of New Mexico.

In 1994 when her youngest child started kindergarten Renee then found the time to start doing art again. She dyes and paints all her fabric, working with cotton and silk. And then transforms her fabric into vibrant fiber constructions and collages that have been described as "pure visual joy".

Renee's work is included in the Art Collections of the Harwood Museum in Taos(NM), State of New Mexico, Bernalillo County (NM), and the Fisherville, VA Medical Center. Just recently Renee was honored to have a piece accepted into the Santa Fe Capitol Art Collection.
