Mount Vernon Volunteers

We had eight wonderful students from nearby Mount Vernon Presbyterian School come to the Gallery for volunteer work last week. As part of their Interim Week, all students participate in community outreach. At the Gallery, the weather limited our outdoor plans. Ultimately, the students helped clean inside the Gallery and some posed for a picture with the 'Everything Will Be OK' sign. 

Thank you for your contribution!

Exhibit Annoucement! Skimming the Surface: Works by Deeann Rieves

We're thrilled to invite Deeann Rieves for a solo show "Skimming the Surface" at the Spruill Gallery.

Skimming the Surface: Works from Deeann Rieves
February 5 – April 4, 2015
Reception: February 19, 6-9 PM

The exhibition of mixed media emphasizes the minute beauty found in the natural world. Organic forms shaped with bold colors and brushstrokes contrast with delicate embroidery and subtle textures to create multi-layered abstract works.  While enticing the senses, Rieves’ invites the viewer on a journey into nature’s cycle of growth and change.

Deeann Rieves has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, galleries, and juried shows across the United States. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Memphis College of Art in December 2007 with an emphasis on painting. Her abstract paintings combine mixed media and machine embroidery to capture transitional forms derived from nature. View her work and learn more at
