Rebecca Waring-Crane, artist

Using experienced furniture as my canvas, I summon visual laughter from familiar objects and turn them into functional art. Chairs and tables dance with vibrant color and lively design to reflect my fascination with using something as common and accessible as paint to make the ordinary extraordinary.
The work on the walls reveals an intimate version of my personal journey to transformation. In these more traditional paintings I continue my love affair with color while I explore the re-framing and redeeming of my narrative as a woman who was once the erased child, a woman who was once at odds with her body, as a woman who is now a redemptive artist.
Handicapped accessible (elevator). View the exhibit booklet with images and prices here. A portion of all proceeds goes to support the programming of the WRC.
