Fourteen Tennessee Artists address the issues of waste and consumption in Paper, Thread, and Trash by constructing art books from discarded or unwanted materials.  Artists explore the relationship we have developed with trash, using our excess to push the boundaries of what makes a book.  Every Artist approaches the challenge of creating books from reuse differently.  The Artist chosen for the exhibit work in a range of mediums, some create books literally, others sculpturally, through installation or a conceptual idea, all with personal exploration.  The Downtown Nashville Public Library’s Art Gallery will host the opening of Paper, Thread, and Trash on Saturday, December 6th from 2pm to 4pm.

Artist include: Aletha Carr, Nance Cooley, Meredith Eastburn, Kelly Cass Falzone, Katie Gonzalez, Emily Holt , Courtney Adair Johnson, Megan Kelly, Kit Kite, Cynthia Marsh, Lesley Patterson-Marx, Nelson Meadows, Lisa Rivas, Jamaica Shaw.

Opening reception: Saturday, December 6th, 2014, 7-10:30 pm
Eastside International

Eastside International is pleased to present artists Dan Regenstreif Axe, McLean Fahnestock, Nicholas Johnston, William Lamson, Barry Markowitz and Ben White in a group exhibition conceptually grounded in the nature of voyages.

These voyages range, some in a literal sense of leaving one’s home to pursue the unknown, others a more philosophical voyage- trying to expand mental horizons and going beyond what is comfortable. Often living on the thrill of pursuit versus the end destination, these artists take this mental space and apply to their art practice. 

The Sun Taught Me How to Set, a new video installation by McLean Fahnestock will make its debut in this exhibition.

PELPposter

Professor Barry Jones had the opportunity to teach Leadership Issues II in the President’s Emerging Leaders Program (PELP) this semester. The course focused on the way that art can address and create social change and engage an audience in participatory ways. 

The semester is culminating in a student initiated project titled “Bridge Across College St.” The artwork explores APSU and Clarksville’s relationship through interviews with members of both communities. From 10 am – 3 pm on December 2, the class will present the work on College St. near the APSU campus with speakers on either side of the road.
