Galleries to offer dazzling displays
As "Transform — Gems & Jewels" gets underway on Nov. 13, many local art galleries will be putting their best works forward for thousands of revelers’ enjoyment.
In addition to participating in the gallery tour portion of the evening, each of the participating venues will be donating 10 percent of all gallery sales made that evening to Nashville CARES.
Bennett Galleries, a family-owned business, has long been – and continues to be – associated with fine art.
The gallery’s focus is to show works of contemporary paintings, sculpture, and ceramics by local, regional and international artists. Additional features of the gallery include custom and archival framing, unique gifts, handmade jewelry, and home accents.
The gallery’s exhibition schedule features individual artist shows as well as theme shows that include the works of several artists.
The sleek, sophisticated interior and stylistic breadth of artworks make Estel Gallery stand out in the Nashville contemporary fine art market.
Patrons and collectors enjoy exceptional artwork of new and emerging national and international contemporary artists. Estel is the exclusive dealer of Nashville favorite Harry Underwood.
Best known for Athena Parthenos, the largest interior sculpture in the Western world, owner/sculptor Alan LeQuire feels there is a major trend among contemporary artists toward a more narrative, figurative art. LeQuire Gallery heavily promotes the original works of these New Figurative Artists as well as other well trained, contemporary sculptors and painters. A longtime supporter of the atelier movement, LeQuire’s sculpting studio is also housed in the 5,000-square-foot building and is available for tour during regular gallery hours.
Showcasing a variety of paintings and sculpture from our current stable of artists, LeQuire Gallery Green Hills features a wide selection of handmade work, including everything from whimsical ceramics to organic, contemporary jewelry. Complimentary gift-wrap and registry.
The Rymer Gallery is the largest contemporary gallery in the heart of Nashville’s arts district. The objective of the gallery is to continue the legacy endowed by The Betty Rymer Gallery at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago by supporting the best of what the contemporary art world has to offer. Our goal is to foster artwork that entices, engages and lures artists, collectors and enthusiasts to Nashville’s expanding art scene.
Tennessee Arts 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 more than 50 years.
In 1965, the Art League started the annual South Central Art Exhibition, one of the oldest, continuing 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 Arts Company
Established in 1996, The Arts Company continues to be an arts cornerstone in downtown Nashville and a prime destination for fresh, original, contemporary artwork in photography, painting, and sculpture, by artists from emerging to legendary.
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.
