Re: “The December Art Crawl offers gift-giving grab bag

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,

Re: “Adrienne Outlaw talks Flex It!, Seed Space and her decision to leave Nashville

Art is precious for any community. Such things matter a lot.

Re: “Adrienne Outlaw talks Flex It!, Seed Space and her decision to leave Nashville

Back in the early 2000....I was all gun ho to be an Artist.....which I thought was ""SHOW and TELL".....I am so still so naïve I want to share time and stories....Did not know it was business{cut throat}......Anyway, I give Adrienne Outlaw to evalue my work. And write a criticize of my work......I gave her$300.CASH for this chore.....What I got back, she made a personal appointment in his office...Which was enjoyable visit but no suggests about me being an Artist....That was nothing he could do being Folk Art Director.of Tennessee......and letting me talk to him was worth more than $300..... more than enough she could do.....

2-3pm this Saturday (Nov. 22) MeetUp with me at the Parthenon for a Capoeira lesson where we put together Athena-like skills of war and peace! I hope everyone can visit the show to see what I've been doing for the past few years and visit with me before I go.

Re: “Downtown Presbyterian Church celebrates 20 years of supporting artists

Hey John! Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts. A really remarkable story about a remarkable building and the remarkable people who continue to defy expectations in their energy and creativity.

Re: “Downtown Presbyterian Church celebrates 20 years of supporting artists

To Joe Nolan: thanks for highlighting the "art monks" at Downtown Presbyterian Church. What a great reference you made to David Lynch about the "setup". I remember the empty 3rd and 4th floors were pregnant with possibility with its wonderful lighting and curved plaster walls. To invite artists into a Presbyterian church with its theological lineage tracing back to John Calvin and his dim view on any worship space other than gray walls and clear windows for fear of idolatrous worship was a bit risky. But, then again, Strickland's Egyptian revival church was already a detour from the conventional. What energy the artists brought and thanks go to Tom Wills for his early and continued efforts. My son Aaron took art lessons as a young kid with Todd Greene. Now years later, he is smitten by the elusive muse and works with Herb Williams and leaves tomorrow to Shanghai, China to rejoin Herb's current show there. - John Hilley, Pastor from 1994-2000

Re: “Are Wedgewood-Houston and Fifth Avenue strange bedfellows or a perfect match?

Thanks for reading, Manuel. As an Inglewoodian I'm particularly interested in knowing when the east side of the river might catch that spark that leads to a long sustained explosion of galleries and studios.

Great article Joe. This is a way to help get Nashville on the national and international arts map - building first Saturdays as an across the city arts event! In a few years we all may be surprised at how this grows.

Re: “The Frist's animation exhibit is both overwhelming and extraordinarily satisfying

"...viewers can watch each film individually, headphone-less..."

Do you mean *just* watch, as opposed to watching and listening? Because otherwise this is certainly not a true statement. There are many films for which it's necessary to wear headphones in order to hear the soundtrack.

Re: “When time doesn't always get away from us

I loved this exhibition and am very excited to see what Sherrick and Paul bring to the city once their gallery launches. Kudos!

Re: “When time doesn't always get away from us

Thanks for your response. I think the operative word here is FROM. What you have written above is that the artwork is actually from a private lender, or in your case, a consignor, who intends for you to sell it. It is not from the Tate Modern. At best you could say that it is FROM an exhibit that was originally organized by (or for) the Tate Modern before it traveled to your commercial gallery. Minor point perhaps, but it is important to be clear about these things. My guess is that the the TM would agree. In any case, it is quite a wonderful show of photos.

Re: “When time doesn't always get away from us

The Klein/Moriyama exhibition was a show that took place at Tate Modern from October 12, 2012-January 20, 2013. This exhibition was consigned to the Tate Modern like any other museum institution around the world when they are hosting an exhibition of this caliber. The Tate Modern does not own these prints. Like it does not own the John Baldessari exhibition True Beauty or any other exhibition that has come through its door. When an exhibition is over the work goes back to the artist's perspective galleries or private collections that it was borrowed from. I hope this answers your comment. Susan Sherrick

Re: “When time doesn't always get away from us

Just curious - what exactly does 'Selections from the Tate Modern" mean in the context of this exhibit? The photos are for sale, so presumably they are not from the Tate's collection, as the title would imply.

Re: “The start of an ongoing oral history of Nashville's art scene since 1989

Thank you for the article and thank you Lain York for your comment. I do not think anyone could have explained the group and it's motivation any better. We have an impressive list of artists that ran through the untitled gauntlet, but why drop names. I see original untitled core members [family] around Nashville still giving as they always have. untitled was in your faces for a reason and the Glow Shows were brilliant and epic. Nashville took a kick in the pants forward thanks to the untitled folks, you guys know who you are...

Re: “A talk with artist Patricia Piccinini, whose disquieting yet appealing works explore the bond between man and animal

Sculpture is as artistic as oil painting which is always credited regardless of where the concept came from. I love Patricia concepts but most people think she is a sculptor because she doesn't credit any of the artist. I believe the sculptors should at least be credited in the show. In the fine print if nothing else.

Re: “The start of an ongoing oral history of Nashville's art scene since 1989

Thanks, Laura!

Did have one point I wanted to clarify. The comment about Untitled being untalented was very much the perception of few more established artists outside the group (not mine); it was labeled by others as UN-talented, UN-bridled, UN-professional, etc.. There were SO many talented folks there that were talented in SO many areas and were flatly uninterested in the available channels at the time. I believe there will always be a place for that group esthetic in Nashville.

That group worked VERY hard because we all believed we were doing something different that mattered. It was very disappointing to have “professional” colleagues that were that clueless as to what the nature of the group was about. I believe the group went a long way in providing tools/opportunities to its constituency that the other industry hubs were not and thanks to that group, I personally had a better understanding of what I was doing.
