Mary Addison Hackett became an adjunct faculty member at Watkins College of Art after a recent move from California brought her back home to Nashville. While we’ve never seen her work in person, we’ve been enjoying an ongoing Google+ correspondence about the state of the arts in the city. Hackett’s website features a digital gallery of recent work, including many examples of the oil, acrylic and mixed-media paintings that she’ll be displaying at Track 13. The best time to see Hackett’s Acts of Moral Turpentine will be tonight’s opening, because after that, the gallery — a couple of old train cars that have been transformed into an exhibition space — only allows visitors by appointment. Hackett makes figurative pieces, but her process seems best suited to her abstract work, and we’re hoping a piece titled “Motel Parking Lot” will make it into the show.
