Melbourne, FL—Several photographs by Indialantic artist and photographer, Rene Griffith, have become a part of Applebee's restaurant renovations. The restaurants include the Eau Gallie location at 3001 W. Eau Gallie Blvd., one in Panama City, and now the Palm Bay Applebee's at 1545 Palm Bay Road NE in Palm Bay.
Four of Rene's photos of Sebastian Inlet, Melbourne Beach, Lake Washington, and Viera were used in the murals and a photo of a Melbourne Beach pier and boathouse at sunset was framed as a standalone piece. “It was exciting to walk in and see my work on their walls,” said Rene on the day of their grand re-opening last week. “Three of the photos were scenics and the other was a White Ibis in flight. Nice that they used a variety of the outdoor images to show off our little bit of paradise here.”
Rene has a studio in Indialantic and travels throughout the US and abroad to photograph nature and landscapes. She is an avid abstract painter as well. Locally, her paintings and photographs can be found at Clay Stephens Lifestyles at 1399 Highland Avenue in the Eau Gallie Arts District. In addition she licenses her images to fine art publishers and manufacturers in the US and Canada. To see more of her work, visit her website at www.renegriffith.com.
