Rinee team teaches “mail art” workshop with Sally Ishikawa. She has a long term love of the Mail Art genre (also known as postal or correspondence art). Sending work through the USPS as Mail Art initially developed in the 1950s and 60s, but has since developed into a global movement. From making mailable ice cream sandwich cookies, unique postcards and delightful postal surprises, to mailable slices of (fake) chocolate cake, mail art has been a favorite indulgence of Rinee’s for many years.
Rinee also teaches paper collage and assembly, and silk-screening on glass.
Rinee says, “A continued investigation into horticulture and science engages my conversations in kilnformed glass. I frequently include the language of graphic design to focus my communication and messaging. Using glass silkscreening, glass kiln forming and glass casting, I use the light and color to direct my studies in texture, shape, and species.”
Rinee’s glasswork has been included in numerous shows. Her work can found at the Coos Historical and Maritime Gallery, the Samaritan Pastega Regional Cancer Center, many privates homes, Imogen Gallery, and The Art Center Giftshop.
