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!

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.
