Rebecca Reeves has been a part of our wonderful Venison community since our first year, 2014. When we did a full feature of her work which you can read here. Not only will Rebecca Reeves be exhibiting in Gathering, but she is also our guest curator for the show! We are so excited to have her a part of our wonderful show. Rebecca will be speaking at the Opening Reception of Gathering: A Venison Magazine Retrospective.
Rebecca Reeves was born, raised and currently resides in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Her system of living becomes the foundation for her work. Reeves's observations fuel the need to clean and organize in order to gain control over her environment.
In her current body of work, Reeves considers herself, the “Collector, Protector and the Keeper” of numerous family heirlooms. Similar to the meticulously detailed Victorian human hair wreaths which represented the family tree; Reeves uses miniature furniture as representation for the objects in her home, her family tree. She obsessively cocoons the miniatures in thread in order to contain and preserve. Nearly, suffocating them in the process.
Come Meet the Artist!
Rebecca Reeves will be in attendance at the opening reception on July 15th and be giving a brief talk with Amber Imrie-Situnayake!
In 2014, Bay Area artist Amber Imrie-Situnayake founded a quarterly online publication called Venison Magazine. Her vision was to highlight emerging artists whose experimentation with process and media created compelling work in an ever-evolving art culture. In fact, Venison Magazine created more than a platform for artist introductions; the publication created a family of artists with one common thread – the necessity to create. For this maiden voyage, we are gathering up the family for the very first Venison Magazine reunion.
Gathering: A Venison Magazine Retrospective is a multi-media, contemporary art exhibition consisting of 27 national and international Venison artists: Amabell Aguiluz, Sarah Ammons, Zoe Childerley, Eric Coppinger, Brian Donnelly, Kay Healy, Meline Höijer Schou, Amber Imrie-Situnayake, Bryan Kring, Skye Livingston, Bernie Lubell, Bonnie MacAllister, Spencer Merolla, Ankica Mitrovska, Jonathan Odom, Jennifer Pettus, Yulia Pinkusevich, Samantha Rausch, Rebecca Reeves, Danielle Schlunegger-Warner, Clare Szydlowski, Shannon Taylor, Jessica Tenbusch, Tyler Thrasher, Adriana Villagran, Chris Vogel and Amber Jean Young.
Our Venison team uses this blog page to post short articles about events, projects, journeys, and art adventures that we find relevant to the contemporary lives of fellow artists.
