MIR gallery hosts Miranda Herrick’s “Works and Days”


If you haven’t seen Miranda Herrick’s “Works and Days” exhibition at the newly opened MIR Gallery, you must schedule it into the remaining November calendar!  Amazing for a number of reasons and on many levels – not the least sheer beauty – the show is a visual tour de force that should not be missed.

The exhibition of 365 pen and ink drawings, a different design completed for each day in 2007, is entirely unique in design and color and a delight by any visual standard.  Each piece stands alone by its attention to detail, precision in execution, and impressive imaginative variety of geometrical play.  Hung together as a body of work, however, the impact is striking to any viewer stepping into this newly opened gallery in downtown Nashville’s Arcade Building.  The 7-by-7 inch drawings completely cover the walls of the upper balcony space in a tightly hung color-wheel representation of the year; the impact on the visual senses upon entering is awe-inspiring.  «Read the rest of this article»
