November’s Artist of the Month: Amelia Garretson-Persans

In an absolutely undemocratic landslide victory, we've chosen former Canadian and current Red State-loving artist Amelia Garretson-Persans as our latest artist of the month. She is a teacher at Firstlight Arts Academy, but she’s also a member of Coop curatorial collective, she’s made stop-motion animation videos for Nashville bands By Lightning! and Spoken Nerd, and she makes zines that are like a combination of Emily Dickinson, Maira Kalman and the Royal Art Lodge. All month long I’ll be checking in with her, posting photos from her studio in East Nashville, getting the inside scoop on what inspires her, sharing some of her stories, and letting you know what she’s got in the pipeline.

You can see some of her greatest hits below, or visit her work in person at The Belcourt — she has an exhibit opening there on Sunday, Nov. 11.
