Sarah Houston Reeves: Oil Paintings

Learn a little more about featured gallery wall artist, Sarah Reeves, this month. Her work will be displayed on the gallery wall across from The Brentwood Room all May.

Sarah Houston Reeves was born in Ohio and graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in education. She taught school and worked in the banking industry before concentrating on her two loves: oil painting and tennis. Her love of art was inherited from her father who was an excellent artist and enjoyed painting especially after his retirement to Hilton Head, South Carolina.


Finding art classes inspirational, Sarah started taking art classes while living in AShland, Kentucky. In 1977 she moved with her husband, Bob, to Brentwood, Tennessee, where she has studied under local artist, Shirley Pharris, the last twelve years.

Reeves has exhibited and sold her paintings at the Martin Masters Show at the Fifty Forward Martin Center, Artisans in the Belfry at the Cathedral of Incarnation on West End Avenue, Sisters in Brentwood, Peartree Shops, Nashville Junior League Parade of Homes, and the Brentwood City Cafe.

Presented by The Friends of The Brentwood Library:

Each month, The Brentwood Library hosts two local artists on the Friends of the Brentwood Library (FOBL) Gallery Wall and Showcase Display. Please take a few extra moments the next time you visit to pause and savor these artists’ creations.

Each artist who displays their collection on the FOBL Gallery Wall contributes one piece to the our Art Lending Library. With over 230 pieces to choose from, patrons are able to check them out for ninety days. This artwork is a beautiful addition to the library that includes original artwork in acrylics, oils, pen and ink, pastels, photographs, and water colors. A full, detailed description of most items can be found in the Digital Collection on the library’s website.
