We're getting back to our beginnings in the New Year: we're bringing back the art gallery shows!
We're re-opening the gallery with local artists that have been the essence of Raleigh through their works. We also have some new wipper-snappers breaking through and showing a different take on our city. Together, these artists will make you take a second look at the scenes around you.
Celebrating local artists ties us back to our community and our original vision for Rebus Works.
THE GALLERY @ REBUS WORKS
These paintings are part of a series that Gerry Lynch made five years ago. In this work her goal was to “justify” compartmentalizing the canvas into different moods and brush strokes. It was also a temporary return to color.
For most of her career she has been an abstract painter, inspired by Asian calligraphy and haute couture, but in the last few years her work has become more personal, more conceptual, and less abstract.
Gerry, a painter for more than fifty years, came to the Research Triangle area in 1990 from New Jersey. She worked at Artspace for many years before moving to her studio on West Lenoir St.

ELIZABETH GALECKE'S STUDENT PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
FRANK'S WORK ONLINE
For the New Year, we're re-opening our gallery with local architect and artist, Frank Harmon. We're celebrating his new book, Native Places: Drawing as a Way to See.
Native Places is a collection of sixty-four watercolor sketches paired with essays about architecture, landscape, everyday objects, and nature. The sketches convey the delight found in ordinary places. The short essays, inspired by the sketches, offer fresh interpretations of what we might have taken for granted.
The goal of Native Places is, in fact, to transform the way we see. Through its pages, barns become a guidebook to crops and weather; a country church is redolent of the struggle for civil rights; a highway rest stop offers a glimpse of egalitarian society.
Native Places also promotes the belief that hand drawing is not an obsolete skill — that sketching offers us an opportunity to develop a natural grace in the way we view the world and take part in it.
Native Places: Drawing as a Way to See is being sold locally and online by Raleigh's favorite bookstore, Quail Ridge Books. We love how supportive Quail Ridge is of local artists, and we thank them for providing copies for you to buy at Rebus Works.
