Melodie Provenzano’s paintings land somewhere between Jeff Koons kitsch and Takashi Murakami cute. For this University School show, the New York-based artist has created 35 new canvases featuring her distinctive still-life paintings of ornamental statuettes. This is Provenzano’s first solo show in Nashville, and along with new works she’ll bring an assortment representing her career trajectory, from stop-motion videos to the objects she uses as subjects in her paintings. Effectively bridging the tricky gap between commercial and accessible, Provenzano manages to maintain an interesting edginess — probably due to her sharp eye and unwillingness to descend into Wes Anderson-esque quirk overload, despite a palette of swirling pink ribbons and tiny ceramic parakeets. Thirty percent of sales from the show go to USN.
