‘Surfaces’ By Rhea Reeves

Mixed-media artist Rhea Reeves introduced herself to me as “a 40-year-old female emerging artist.” We often think of emerging anything as young and brand new, but art can grab you at any time. Actually, I would describe Reeves more as a “returnee.” She graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design but a car accident in 2000 limited her abilities. Now, she’s back at it with furor and has created three series in three years. Reeves said she’s “ready to show the world my expression of emotion, texture and the transformation of the soft materials to beautiful strong gravity defying work.” Welcome back.
