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.
This weekend, Greenwell has joined forces with The Handmaidens, the producers of The Handmade Market, to combine love of their community and the talented people that live in it. Come by on Sunday to the first ever Handmade Revelry at Rebus from 11 am to 4 pm to do some shopping, listen to some great music and have a drink at the new coffee bar located inside Rebus.
