Deeann Rieves is the featured artist for the concert series poster. She loves the juxtaposition of luscious brush strokes with carefree chalk contours and subtle colored pencil lines. In all of her paintings, she uses a sewing technique called free-motion machine embroidery on top of painted papers and then incorporate those papers as collage. Deeann says “she always working on a few paintings at a time – some days are for messy beginnings, others days are for more refined finishing touches”. She attended Memphis College of Art and now resides in Marietta with her husband.
