February’s First Thursday ArtWalk

 

New date: Thursday February 4th, from 5PM TO 8PM

The APSU Downtown Gallery on Strawberry Alley will feature artist Mike Mitchell.  Mitchell, a.k.a. mikewindy, has been known to equate his calling to that of an athlete. The physical exertion required to create a complicated sculpture or painting isn’t all that different than the effort put forth by a baseball or basketball player.

“The moves I make in the studio often feel like the moves I make on a court,” he said in an artist’s statement. “Performing/exhibiting in a square gallery or playing on a rectangular field. Letting the hammer do the work is much like letting the golf club swing itself. Babe Ruth and Pablo Picasso are twin giants separated at birth.”

He went on to receive an M.F.A. from the University of Memphis, but next month he’ll return to Clarksville to exhibit his work in a new show, “Rise and Fall,” at the Austin Peay Downtown Gallery. The show runs from Feb. 4 – 27, with an opening night reception from 5 to 8 p.m. to coincide with the area’s First Thursday Art Walk.

The show will also feature work by Brotherhood of the Harvest, a collaborative sculpture/performance art duo made up of Mitchell and Steve “Uncle Stevo” Marrazzo. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Underground 9 exhibits at the Poston Gallery

 

talNashville, TN – A rogue group of artists, The Underground 9, present their themed exhibit, Sanctuary, at the Tennessee Art League’s Poston Gallery during the month of December. An opening reception with the artists will take place Saturday, December 5th, as part of the Nashville Gallery Crawl.

Terri Jordan, founder of the Underground 9 says “the group is a gathering of creative spirits who not only want to exhibit their art, but also to give back to the community.” While there is a core group of members, the participating artists in each show will change. The 9 invite a select number of artists from the host city to exhibit with them each time. Jordan states that the unique things about the Underground 9 are that each show will have a central theme and the group donates of a portion of sales to a local cause. For the Nashville show that cause is the Tennessee Art League’s community outreach programs.
