Last minute Nashville Visual Arts Events November 2009
I thought this was going to be the month the listing died, but here I am with a few minutes to spare and we’ll see what we can get done tonight. And I’ll see what occurs to me as I type this up, but a couple of highlights this month are Gregg Schlanger’s installation at Twist, which I have high hopes for, and the concert at Sri Ganesha on Nov. 13, which has all the makings of one of the really transcendent ones.
As always, if you have an email list of your own, feel free to forward this.
If someone wants to get added directly to my list for the email, send me an email at email@example.com. To get taken off the list, email to that effect at the same address.

Twist, Gregg Schlanger, Monica Quattrochio, and Kelly Bonadies. I love Gregg’s politics and the issues he deals with—he’s dealt with water in a few different ways, including pieces that address the preservation of local rivers and the life in them. This piece is about the need for water around the world, which is a charged topic, taking you into worlds of development and corporate predation as well as environment. Monica is a photographer and Gregg’s wife and she’s contributing a photographic series on water. http://twistartgallery.com/

Downtown Presbyterian Church, Installation Causation. Installations around the church building by most of the resident artists: Jodi Hays, Liz Streight, Beth Gilmore, Tasha French, Aaron Doenges, Richard Feaster, and Tom Wills.
Estel, Sean O’Meallie. I have not fallen for O’Meallie’s sculptures, but people whose opinions I trust are passionate about his work, so take their better informed recommendation, not mine, and check it out. This is a closing show. Estel will have something else together for Artrageous.
Zeitgeist at Terrazzo, group show. Patrick DeGuira, Brady Haston, Hans Schmitt-Matzen, and Manuel Zeitlin. Also, Zeitgeist opened a show by Lars Strandh at their main gallery on Thursday and his stuff is really compelling and it looks good from the street. I need to stop by there. So do you.
