See Utopia: Can it Stay Dream? before it’s gone…
August 2nd 7:30-10p
942 4th Ave South
Join us for some cheap wine, chocolate and Lucky Charms!
This Saturday, July 5th, 7:30-10:00pm, will be our 1st show at 942 4th Ave South called Utopia: Can it Stay Dream? Curated by Brian Jobe and Ryder Richards.
To me this show has been as much about mystery and anticipation as it has been about an idea of a perfected society (unintentionally fitting since we booked this for the old space). Co-Curator Ryder Richards has been an “artist-in-residence” of sorts, coming in early to help with the build out–we needed a sheetrock wall instead of a concrete one–be sure to ask him about the large, “Home Depot Orange” square he painted underneath the new 12×20′ wall he built in a matter of a couple of days!
Boxes and tubes have been coming in from all parts of the US from the other members of the Culture Laboratory Collective and as this show was accepted based on their reputation as a cohesive, professionally operating artist collective, an idea, and only a couple of images released so far, the show will ultimately be a celebratory surprise. Please join us!
Czann’s has generously donated a delicious beverage and has now opened their own tap room.
Please welcome our newest painter, Wendy Walker to our new space! When Wendy told me she would join our space I was transported to a zen-like place. Aside from the exquisite paintings she’ll bring to our space, her presence alone gives off an elegant, calming affect.
In my work, I am trying to capture-and on some level make tangible-those rare transcendent moments when I feel completely present. I find that these moments are often inspired by a strong sense of place, and objects from the natural world which hold a personal meaning.
B.F.A., Studio Art, Louisiana Tech University Wendy Walker grew up in the piney hills of North Central Louisiana, and has called Nashville, Tennessee home since 1999. She spent several years as a muralist and decorative painter and was the sole proprietor of Fetching Studio. Her art has been featured on four album covers to date. Her paintings have been described by artist and gallery curator Laura DeVille as “delicately dramatic.”
It’s been a terrific two years at the Chestnut building but it is time for Ground Floor Gallery + Studios to be moving on up–the street that is, our new address will be 942 4th Ave South. Please come to visit one last time before the big move to see “Meet of the Matter” by Jake Weigel before it comes down on the 24th. As before, we will be participating regularly in the Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston events and reopening with “Utopia” by Culture Laboratory Collective in July. We are adding 1200+ sqft and have more studios available to like-minded artists. Contact Janet @ 615-478-1467 for details.
Opens at GfG Saturday May 3rd from 6-9pm during
Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston
Artist talk at 6:30p
Hope to see you all there!
