First Thursday Art Walk will be held June 5 from 5-8 p.m. at the DAC Gallery and the shops and galleries on Public Square, Strawberry Alley and Franklin Street.
The June art show at the DAC will feature Beverly Parker’s work, “Alternative Perspective,” a collection of Polaroid manipulations, Polaroid transfers, and Van Dyke Brown.
Parker uses Polaroid film, no longer manufactured, to create the excitement of exposing the film, separating the negative from the positive and transferring the image to watercolor paper. Parkers uses a vintage Polaroid camera to create the mixed media images, and a slide printer is used for the Polaroid transfers. The window show will feature Dorothy Thomason and Leslie Campbell. The combined show is entitled “Elements of Nature.”
ArtWalk also features Larry Martin, a local artist of regional and international prominence, who will display his work during the June First Thursday Art Walk at Edward’s Steakhouse, 107 Franklin Street. Known for his signature “Keyboard” jazz paintings, he will additionally be showing some abstracts and other subjects in the form of originals, giclees and prints.
Collaborative Artwork by Melanie Davis and Miranda Herrick will be hosted by The Framemaker on North Second Street and Georgia Avenue. Melanie Davis is a designer, photographer and marketing consultant living and working in Nashville. Her affinity for large structures and night photography led her to start her current project, Horse Trails to Highways, a photographic exploration of the intersection between highways and byways around Nashville. Miranda Herrick’s current artwork involves detailed, pattern-based mosaics made from recycled aluminum cans. She works at Bennet Galleries in Nashville and lives in a quirky farmhouse in Clarksville.
The Peg Harvill Gallery at the Roxy Regional Theatre will host artist Brad Reagan. The gallery will be open only until 6:30 p.m. due to a performance of Little Shop Of Horrors.
Trespass Gallery at 139A Franklin Street will host the closing of “Uncharted” during Art Walk. “Uncharted” explores many facets of our daily cultural experiences through visual arts. Trespass will be holding a new opening reception for its next exhibit on June 14th from 5-9 p.m.
