Rieves is a mixed media contemporary artist working on wood, paper, fabric and canvas. She works full time in her Marietta, Ga., studio and her mixed media paintings have been featured in numerous solo exhibitions and juried group shows across the United States. Her abstract paintings combine mixed media and machine embroidery to capture transitional forms derived from nature.
Her series “Spills and Coverings” was featured in six solo exhibits, the first at Memphis College of Art’s Alumni Gallery in October 2010, later at The Renaissance Center in Dixon, Tenn., and more recently at Downtown Press Gallery in Memphis’ gallery district in October 2012.
Individual pieces from this series appeared in multiple group exhibits across the United States – “Fiber Plus” in New York, “The Elegant Line” in California, “Fantastic Fibers” in Paducah, Ky., the Dogwood Regional Fine Arts Exhibit in Knoxville, Tenn., “Fiber Focus” in St. Louis, and consecutive years at Metro Montage XI and XII at Marietta Cobb Museum of Art in Marietta, Ga.
Rieves received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Memphis College of Art in December 2007 with an emphasis on painting.
