Renée A. Fox, Artist
Fox's work is inspired by traditional botanicals and nature. Her work addresses the ability of natural beauty to simultaneously be perceived as grotesque, taboo or cliché. She objectifies natural subjects, removing them from their natural context of landscape or still life by drastically enlarging them and placing them on spare grounds. Fox is represented by K. Saari Gallery in Steamboat Springs, CO and in California, shows and sells her work to private collectors, independently and through select professionals.
Beacon Arts Creative Director, Inglewood Open Studios Organizer, Art Archivist
Renée Fox, a contemporary artist working in mixed media painting and drawing, was tapped to run the Beacon Arts gallery space based on her success organizing Inglewood Open Studios. The Open Studios project grew quickly from 7 to 39 participating artists, attracted large crowds, and got great press in just a few short years under Fox's leadership, providing a nexus for the blossoming art community in the area. The firecracker mover-shaker was born in Frederick, Maryland, attended the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington D.C. and graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in 2002. She is an experienced curator and owner of art-related businesses (archiving and decorative painting). She has participated in and curated art exhibitions in Washington DC and Los Angeles. Fox currently directs the new Beacon Arts gallery space in Inglewood, CA and continues to organize Inglewood Open Studios.
