Finer Things Gallery was established in 1995 to showcase an eclectic mix of fine art, fine craft, studio furniture and antiques.

Located just south of downtown, the elegant interior of this large converted warehouse once housed an active furniture manufacturing plant. The 18-foot, domed ceilings create a sophisticated environment for the exhibition of contemporary art.

Tennessee Art League

Founded by a group of Middle Tennessee artists in 1954, the Tennessee Art League has enriched the lives of artists and the community as a cultural center, educational facility and art gallery for over fifty years.

In 1965, the Art League started the annual South Central Art Exhibition, one of the oldest, continuing and most important juried art competitions in Tennessee and the South today. In 2005, the Tennessee Art League moved to its new facility in the heart of the historical and cultural center of Nashville. There, it continues its mission of promoting the visual arts through changing exhibitions, workshops, classes and community outreach.

The various gallery spaces — more than 6,000 square feet on two floors in a historic building — include a downstairs gallery featuring an extensive inventory of artwork and books; and upstairs galleries designated for exhibits and projects for businesses and individuals.


National Margarita Day

A lot of us have really picked up an interest in tequila and it's no wonder. Its popularity is soaring in the U.S. and doesn't look like it'll be slowing down any time soon. The only contender would probably be whiskey. Meh, but they have their own day. Now, it's National Margarita Day and we put together some of the best margarita recipes around so you can pick one or maybe even all of them to try.

We have a few surprises in there too. Maybe it's not all about tequila but it certainly has a theme going on. Take a look at some of these great tequila brands and start making some amazing margaritas today!

Gender-Inclusive Universities and Student Privacy

For many students, attending university is a profound, often life-changing, transition. It is often the student’s first time living on their own without parental supervision. This lifestyle is also accompanied by a period of self-discovery, of defining and redefining a sense of personal identity largely independent of the influence of family and friends from home.

For students who are members of the LGBTQ+ community, this rite of passage can also be a deeply empowering one. Indeed, attending university may be the student’s first real opportunity to explore their gender identity in a safe, comfortable, and accepting college.

The trip was all about tequila, how to drink it properly, how to pair it with food, and of course, visiting various points of interest in Guadalajara while tasting tequila along the way.
