May 2023 Art Exhibit

In the Martucci Gallery at the Irvington Library


Weddings & Wildflowers

by Renee Shamosh


Artist’s Statement and Biography

In my show “Weddings & Wildflowers,” I have explored the wedding ritual in our culture as it celebrates love, unity and hope for the future. My focus has been on the lines, colors, textures and shapes we find in flowers, and the inspiration they provide.

We incorporate flowers in momentous occasions not only because of the joy and beauty they bring, but as a symbol of renewal.


Renee Shamosh is a multi-media artist with 40 years of art teaching experience.  An avid gardener, member of the Garden Club of Irvington, and The Irvington Beautification Committee, Renee uses elements of nature in her work.

Renee and her family have lived here for over 35 years.
