Renée Fleuranges-Valdes, is Founder and CEO of Quilted Artistry by Renee, a Black-owned contemporary fiber art business that is taking Charleston, South Carolina by storm. The first quarter of 2022 has seen Quilted Artistry by Renee featured in a solo show at the Park Circle Gallery in North Charleston; as the monthly artist feature in the February issue of Charleston Magazine; in an online magazine South Carolina Voyager; and in Griots: Cotton, Indigo & Clay, an exhibit at City Gallery at Waterfront Park by approximately 40 African American female artists honoring land ownership in Black America. Renée then kicked off April 2022, with a local small business spotlight in the Charleston City Paper; followed by a Lowcountry Live Spotlight on ABC News 4 Charleston.

This latest exposure comes as Renée Fleuranges-Valdes moves south from her hometown of Mt. Vernon, NY to North Charleston, SC, where she is working to bring greater exposure to fiber art as a fine art medium in itself, but also in a broader sense as she educates the market on the use of the medium in home and office decor. “Folks are constantly asking how to use my fiber art in their home. My goal is to help clients build art collections that they are proud to hang in their personal spaces, that show their own sense of style and brings joy to the room. I look forward to building relationships with curators, gallerists, art collectors, interior designers, and home stagers as we work together to educate their clients and the southern market," says Renée.

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here
