A book, René Romero Schüler: Life and Works, showcasing images of the artist’s thick impastos and striking figural canvases in addition to providing readers a look into her artistic process, was released in 2013 by Jennifer Norback Fine Art.
René shares her artistic talent and passion by teaching at the Illinois Institute of Art and Chicago City Colleges and lecturing at Northwestern University. Her work is on display in public collections inside the Prudential Building, the Chanel boutique at Neiman Marcus, Hyatt Hotels, and in the permanent archives at the Art Institute of Chicago. René’s work has been exhibited internationally and continues to be permanently represented in the United States and in Paris, France.
René Romero Schuler is one of the most important and well-collected contemporary artists to emerge out of the Midwest in the last 10 years. This Chicago-based artist is creating powerful images of strength and vulnerability that are capturing the attention of gallerists, collectors, corporations, museums, and the media worldwide. Her work is in several public and private collections, and in the permanent collections of Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA), Chicago, and St. Thomas University Museum of Art-Sardiñas Gallery, Miami. Last summer, her work went international, with shows in Rome, Paris, and Paxos, Greece. Her work has been exhibited during Art Basel Miami since 2011, and in 2014 at Art Beirut and Art Singapore. Also in 2014,The Artist & Artisan Series was created between René and John Terlato of Terlato Wines International. René was commissioned to hand paint a limited number of bottles of Terlato Family Vineyards wines, which sold out quickly and received much critical acclaim. To celebrate the partnership, René exhibited her work at Chimney Rock Winery for over six months.
