Friday: Two Chestnut Square Art Openings

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2012 at 8:41 AM

Matt Christy: Arguing Alone is Lonely & Nicole Baumann: Fortune Holiday
When: 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 29
Where: Threesquared and Seed Space Galleries, 427 Chestnut St.

I’ve been singing the praises of the Chestnut Square building near Greer Stadium for a while, but just in case you haven’t been listening: It’s home to art studios for some of the city’s best artists, like Emily Clayton, Adrienne Outlaw and Kit Reuther. Two of the studios also house Seed Space and Threesquared, side-by-side galleries owned by vetted artists and operated by fresh-faced curators. This month’s dual gallery openings are the best excuses yet to check the place out.

Matt Christy, a lifelong Nashvillian and local art world heavy-hitter (he’s published reviews in Number and Art Papers, shown work at Twist and studied at Watkins) is packing up for grad school in Oregon. Threesquared is hosting his last exhibit as a full-time Nashvillian, and it’s called Arguing Alone Is Lonely. The exhibit focuses on a series of Christy’s paintings, drawings, textiles and collage works that revolve around the idea of the masses.

Next door at Seed Space, Nicole Baumann will be exhibiting Fortune Holiday, a piece that’s made up of small hand-embroidered cutouts arranged on a wall to create a larger image. The makeshift after-party, I’ve been told, is the Noa Noa show (see this Critic’s Pick for more on that), so if you’re down for a full night of emotional goodbyes, thoughtful art, electronic music and faintly musty sawdust smells, start your night at Chestnut Square.
