Susan Goshgarian McGrew, Dan Quest & Deb Arter at Renaissance Center 

Three's Company

Three's Company
These three exhibits at Dickson's Renaissance Center provide the perfect excuse to take a one-tank road trip before it gets hotter than a two-dollar pistol 'round here. So roll down those windows, make the 40-minute trek and gitcha some culture. Susan Goshgarian McGrew's current series of lush oil paintings is inspired by scenes along Tennessee's Fiery Gizzard Creek. Jack Daniel's acolytes will enjoy a showing of Dan Quest's renowned woodcut prints, which capture scenes around the famous distillery and surrounding Lynchburg. Quest's serene, detailed images almost manage to make whiskey seem wholesome. The aptly surnamed Deb Arter uses a variety of media (including bacon, soap and felt) to create sculptures that explore mundane habits and domestic rituals such as cooking, washing dishes, weaving and sewing, while questioning gender roles and stereotypes. Speaking of cooking, while you're out there, check out Papa Boudreaux's Cajun Cafe in the Ramada Inn at Highway 46 and I-40.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: May 15. Continues through June 12, 2009
