Welcome, Raine

Raine Klover is the newest artist to join The Renaissance Art Gallery co-operative. She is an accomplished photographer and encaustic painter, combining two mediums in a really interesting way.

An itinerant photographer and artist, Raine is inspired by both the natural and man-made worlds. In the past decade she has lived in Seattle, Dallas, New Orleans, Dayton, OH, Albuquerque and currently resides in Huntington, WV. These diverse locales have all added layers upon layers of unique cultural flavors to her worldview. Her work is not about capturing a moment – but about capturing emotions and creating visual allegories. She is drawn to the darker side of life and loves things that simultaneously break her heart with their emotional context and lift her up with their unmistakable beauty.

In addition to hanging pictures at The Renaissance Art Gallery, Raine will also be teaching. Leading workshops in encaustic painting for adults and a combined workshop in jewelry making, open to children and adults.
Her work can be viewed at the gallery during normal gallery hours and on her website: http://www.raineworks.com/
