BFA 1980, Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA
The work of Renee Stout delves into the realm of spirit. The artist’s search for meaning, history and connection by way of the spiritual world has produced a body of work which encompasses the viewer in an amazingly beautiful, intriguing and introspective journey. “What stimulates my imagination is not actually knowing. Because there is a mystery, there are no rules set, I am free to use my own imagination.” Although primarily known for her assemblages and sculpture, Ms. Stout’s roots are in painting. Her skills as a draftspersons play a strong role in much of her work.
Stout’s solo exhibitions include the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Pa. and the Kornblatt and Chapel Galleries, Washington D.C. Group shows have included the Anacostia Museum, the Martin Luther King Public Library. Stout’s work is in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, Texas; Allegheny Community College, and many private collections. She was the honored recipient of the African-American Master Artists in Residency Program, Northeastern University, Boston.
