ABOUT REBUS WORKS

SEE OUR HISTORY & MEET OUR STAFF

HOW IT BEGAN

Rebus Works began in 2003 as a community oriented gallery run by artists, for artists. A joint project of local photographer Shonna Greenwell and printmaker Lee Moore, Rebus Works focused on media and artists that were less frequently featured in other Raleigh galleries at the time.

The gallery filled an important niche in the Triangle, exhibiting edgy, thought-provoking pieces that challenged the viewer. Rebus Works also combined high craft with fine art to showcase the work of North Carolina craftsmen through a collaboration with Penland School of Craft.

Today Greenwell, the owner of Rebus Works and proprietor of PH7 Fine Art Framing, upholds the original vision of Rebus Works as a space rooted in the local community. Rebus Works regularly features the work of area artists, and also hosts The Saturday Market, where farmers and crafters show off their wares every weekend.

MEET OUR STAFF

MELISSA MUNSON

When not working on the Rebus Works' website, creating newsletters, or posting on social media, she's doing the same thing with other clients under her business name, MM Design.

After working as a web developer for 20 years, she wanted to add more art to her daily life by segueing from coding into design: creating websites, product labels, social media content, and logos.

DINA JIRIS

A massage therapist since 2007, she went to UNC Greensboro for Exercise and Sport Science focusing in Pre-Physical Therapy and Fitness Leadership. It wasn’t until several years later that she pursued massage therapy.

Combining the knowledge she attained in both instances, she found herself looking for a career that would be a perfect fit. She researched many different healthcare facilities as well as modalities and approaches, which led her to believe that healing should stem from the inside out. This is why she is a massage therapist. Dina works on a referral basis only, as she works from home.

SHONNA GREENWELL

After receiving a BFA from the University of Arizona with an emphasis in photography, she opened Rebus Works and pH Seven Frame Shop in 2003. She has 23 years experience in framing art.

She loves working with customers of all kinds to make their world a little bit brighter.
