Collages by Renna Abadi at guild

“Beautiful Dreamer” “Beautiful Dreamer” SHREWSBURY — “Up Close and Personal,” a show of collages by Renna Abadi, will be on exhibit at The Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury throughout the month of July. About her art, Abadi says “the juxtaposition of a recognizable image against a surreal or abstract one has always fascinated me. My inspiration comes from art sources, as well as from memories of places I’ve seen, read about, or imagined. For me, a love of color and form — in relation to the composition of a picture is an integral part of my art.”

A resident of Elberon, Abadi has exhibited at the National Museum of Sports at Madison Square Garden, the New York National Arts Club, Union Carbide, Pace University, Lincoln Center, Lever House, the Allied Arts Guild, and the Art Students League in New York.
