“Her Path to Afro-Futurism” Exhibit

The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) presents Renata Philippe, the artist behind Black Squirrel Company. Renata looked to her past endeavors for inspiration in her first exhibit “Her Path to Afro-Futurism,” now on display through April 24. With pieces from various mediums like gouache, gold gild, and hand appliqued quilts, Renata felt set free from the restriction that once bound her as a network engineer.

“Peacock,” by Renata Philippe, is a quilt in varied colors of the bird abstract.

Each piece stands independent in the collection telling its own story along the path. The collection has sewn organic forms finding stability in African wax cloth and painted limbs fused with gold. Renata illustrates and celebrates the uniqueness and innovation of African American culture.

Many of the pieces in this small collection are for sale. FACES is located at 7 North Fourth Street in Denton and is open Thursday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Kathleen McCulloch at 443-448-4611 or info@fiberartscenter.com.
