Untitled Artist Group unveils winter show

Nashville's Untitled Artists' Group invites art lovers to mellow out and relax with the "Live Art" inspiration of "Chill."

More than 60 cool, innovative and upcoming Nashville visual artists will make your eyes shiver with interactive 'Live Art', dope paintings, rad photography and frosty mixed-media. "Chill" is the latest in a series of successful quarterly exhibitions that promise never to leave you pale while supporting artistic innovation and alternative visual arts in non-traditional spaces.

"Chill" will take place Friday, Dec. 14, from 6-10 p.m. at Layl'a Rul, 909 20th Ave S. in Nashville. Admission is free, and guests are invited to hang out, meet and socialize with the artists, all while viewing art and partaking in the creative energy dubbed as 'Live Art'.

Untitled has introduced new artists to the community since 1991, is comprised of several hundred artists and has left an indelible stamp on the burgeoning Nashville art scene. Untitled members include staff and exhibiting artists from Zeitgeist, Dangenart, Plowhaus, Twist Gallery and (fov) gallery. 

Untitled members also include art faculty, students and graduates from Watkins College of Art and Design, Belmont University, Vanderbilt University, Savannah College of Art and Design, Lipscomb University, TSU, Fisk University and MTSU.

'Live Art' will be a special feature of the "Chill" show, promoting creative interactivity between artists and audience. All in attendance will be welcomed to participate in this one of a kind engaging art experience. As well, you may get a chance to be a part of filming for the upcoming Untitled Documentary. Filming of the latest exciting Untitled project will feature the upcoming Spring show in 2008, and Untitled members are actively recruiting, discussing and planning this project, which will be submitted to local and national public broadcasting stations.

Patrons may purchase artwork by cash, check or credit card and may take their pieces home with them at 10 p.m. that evening.

Untitled is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting artists, reaching new art audiences and offering alternative visual arts experiences in the Nashville community. The group's meetings and shows provide opportunities for artists to connect, collaborate and learn from each other. All artists at all levels and in all media are invited to attend weekly meetings at Kazu in Cummins Station and to participate in quarterly exhibitions.

The deadline for artists to register for "Chill" is Dec. 9.  New artists are encouraged to show.  For more information about "Chill" or the Untitled Artists' Group and its programs, visit www.untitlednashville.org or email info@untitlednashville.org.

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
