Where: Zeitgeist, 1819 21st Ave. S.
When: Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 28

Year after year, Zeitgeist consistently puts on some of the most artistically satisfying and thought-provoking art events in Nashville. Even the title of this show — highlighting work by more than a dozen artists who will be featured in shows later this year — seems pointed, as if to push a button or start a conversation. Judging from the pieces featured in the press release — among them a slyly ironic photograph by Caroline Allison, a curious meditation on religious transportation by painter Patrick DeGuira, and a terra-cotta statuette by John Donovan that suggests ancient Chinese dynasties might have been watching the Cartoon Network — it should be a great way to shake off the post-holiday malaise. (Check out Sara Estes' write-up at ArtNowNashville.)

Other artists featured include Richard Feaster, Brady Haston, Alicia Henry, Megan Lightell, Vesna Pavlovic, Greg Pond, Terry Rowlett, Hans Schmitt-Matzen and Brent Stewart — not to mention Lain York, the gallery director, and architect Manuel Zeitlin, whose wife Janice owns the gallery. No telling if the exhibit will include a presentation by York and Zeitlin on the psychological toll of always being listed at the end of alphabetical artist rosters, but here’s hoping.
