REBUS WORKS' ART GALLERY
THE GALLERY @ REBUS WORKS
Rebus Works first opened our doors as an alternative gallery for artists who weren't finding representation in bigger galleries.
This year marks our 20th year anniversary! To celebrate, each month we're highlighting some of our past artists who've helped make Rebus Works an amazing space for local makers.
Rebus Works is turning 20 this year, and in honor of our start as an art gallery, we're creating a
COFFEE + ART CROSSOVER.
Each month, we'll have a new artist on the wall, and we'll be creating a special coffee bean blend that will capture their art and style.
In each bag will be a special piece created by the artists. It's way better than a prize in a Cracker Jack Box!
Scroll down to see the artists.

Created from reclaimed samples & remnants of upholstery fabrics and stitch, Cary’s meticulously detailed fabric collage Needleprints are brilliant & textured representational depictions of the buildings and iconic streetscapes that make (or perhaps we should say “made”) Raleigh, well, Raleigh.
This series includes a few still-extant landmarks, along with many that have fallen to “progress,” or whose facades have been updated or downgraded: Hillsborough Street’s “bulldozer in the sky,” the doomed “hair curler Holiday Inn,” the Piggly Wiggly that now houses NOFO, and the Planter’s Peanut shop turned used car dealership are just a few of the dozen pieces that will be on view.
“It is wondrous, the way that fabric works to make our beloved buildings become even more sentimental because of the way cloth makes us feel,” says Cary. “Cloth is softness, protection and comfort, and needlework is love passed through hands and into cloth. Needlework is such a vital and time-honored way to capture and hand down history; I just love being a cipher for that.”
Caitlin Cary is an artist and songwriter/musician who has called Raleigh home for the past 27 years. She was awarded the Artspace Regional Emerging Artist residency in 2015, and she currently runs a small gallery and working studio in Oakwood called The Pocket Gallery. Her work has been shown in numerous juried shows and galleries throughout the country, and is widely collected, especially by those who know and love Raleigh, NC! She is also an acclaimed musician as a solo act and member of Tres Chicas, Small Ponds and Whiskeytown.
