Looks Great , ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF: ART NASHVILLE


ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF:
ART NASHVILLE

The latest annual destination for the international art world: Nashville, Tennessee.
Art Nashville 2018 will be the city’s first annual international art fair, drawing art lovers and buyers from around the globe, expanding Nashville from Music City to an Art City. 
Art Nashville 2018 will be held downtown, steps away from Broadway, Avenue of the Arts and Music Row!

Art Nashville will host 60+ international art galleries.  Our mission is to host a cross section of Nashville, the old and the new. We want to bring all aspects of Arttogether. 
Art Nashville 2018 will showcase both Nashville the city and Nashville the creative center and highlight its ascension as a blossoming center of the arts and culture.
Music City is becoming globally recognized as a hub for the Arts.  From Nashville’s long history as Music City to its rich culinary scene.  From the Nashville Symphony to the new Ascend Amphitheater, Nashville is Art.

Downtown Nashville keeps blooming, collectives and artist projects and new galleries are popping up. Surrounding areas like East Nashville and Wedgewood/Houston are becoming hubs of creativity. The handful of established galleries on North 5th Avenue as known as Avenue of the Arts showcase international renowned artists as well as emerging local talent.

There is much more to come.  @art_nashville

CULTURE

Nashville has been ranked as the 2nd most vibrant arts city in the US by the National Center for Arts Research at SMU.  The Frist Center for The Visual Arts and Fifth Avenue of The Arts both have visual art as their major focus, and places Nashville as a steadily growing art market. 
The Tennessee Symphony, Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Nashville Opera, Nashville Ballet, Tennessee Repertory Theatre, Ryman Auditorium, Belcourt Theatre,  all anchor performing arts in Nashville, and demonstrate the value Tennesseans place on high culture and art.

The Art Gallery at Vanderbilt University recently acquired these works to broaden their collection of internationally known artists:

The prestigious Vanderbilt University. 

Arion Press’ Biotherm by Frank O’Hara with lithographs by Jim Dine; Louise Bourgeois’ and Arthur Miller’s Homely Girl, A Life, published by Peter Blum Editions; Paesaggi by Mimmo Paladino, published by Waddington Graphics; Leslie Dill’s A Word Made Flesh and her Homage to N.S., published by Landfall Press; and Enrique Chagoya’s The Enlightened Savage, published by Trillium Press; as well as graphics by artists such as Tjeu Teeuwen, Peter Foolen, Hans Waanders, Kees Verbeck, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Richard Long, Joseph Kosuth, Roni Horn, Mona Hatoum, Hamish Fulton, and Sol LeWitt.

ECONOMY

Nashville is booming.  It has seen job growth outpace population growth, enjoys a real estate market second to none, with luxury housing at a fraction of the price of other markets, thereby affording high income earners a larger proportion of disposable income.  Nashville has done quite well by the leadership of city and civic leaders, as it continues to grow in its major business sectors of health care, professional sports, music, finance and tech.
  • 63 percent of Downtown Residents make $100,000 - Up 16% from 2014.
  • 47.1% of the Nashville Population is between the ages 30 and 64 – an ideal cohort for the average art collector.
  • Real estate data for Nashville trends indicate an increase of $12,400 (5%)in median home sales of the past year.
  • Average price per square foot rose from $160 to $177 in the past year.
Downtown Nashville: Broadway (Nashville's hub of live music venues)

LOCATION

Saying nothing else of Nashville’s many charms, early autumn draws thousands to Nashville and its environs to enjoy perfect weather and dramatic fall foliage.  In choosing October 2018 we see an excellent opportunity in the art fair calendar and will attract regulars in the art fair circuit.  Art Nashville will be precisely situated between Expo Chicago, Frieze London and Texas Contemporary.

 

MAJOR INDUSTRIES IN NASHVILLE INCLUDE: HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT, AUTOMOBILE PRODUCTION, FINANCE, HIGHER EDUCATION, INSURANCE, MUSIC PRODUCTION, PRINTING & PUBLISHING, TECHNOLOGY MANUFACTURING, AND TOURISM.

GALLERY NEWS


David Barnett

David Barnett is featured in ODD BEAUTY: The Techno-Eccentric World of Steampunk, September 23 - November 12 at the Southampton Arts Center in the Hamptons. In the 10 years since this small, eccentric genre exploded to life on the internet, Steampunk has globally grown to influence virtually every form of the visual arts and design. Beginning with the re-imagined, visual language of the 19th Century Victorian Era, Steampunk now counts its inspirations as far back as the mechanical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci to the bold, streamlined locomotives of Raymond Lowey. But what gives this art form its singular identity is the artists’ visual and cultural fascination with mechanical, gear-driven technologies of the past.  

 
This exhibition presents works from the most notable Steampunk artists and designers in the field and features visual art, technologies, and contraptions extraordinaire, all of which richly illustrate the need for a messy vitality which allows the imagination to soar. ODD BEAUTY is the most ambitious International Steampunk exhibition since it made its wildly successful premiere at Oxford University’s Museum of the History of Science in 2009 and later at South Korea’s Seoul National Museum in 2014.
