We couldn’t wait to introduce you to our newest addition to our roster, Bob Bechtol. Here he is in front of his fantastic studio space. Bechtol’s debut exhibition, Contradiction to Coalescence, opens July 6th! His upcoming series incorporates gestural, expressive and abstract applications, as well as hints of representation, overlaid in grids. For him, the process is the most important aspect. Keep your eyes open for a little studio visit video to see it for yourself 🎥✏️✨

These artists might have just reinvented what it means to glow-up these found photographs 📸 Fun fact: We’ve extended #TheAlteredImage and #GivingUpTheGhost through next Tuesday, just for you. Come in and experience the clever and meditative joining together, embellishing, dissections and reconnections of these found images for one last time before it closes May 28th.
Details from #GivingUpTheGhost with these delightful Ghost Photographs by @angeladeane 📸 Stop by this month to see one of the last showings of this body of work that will be making an appearance in Deane’s upcoming book, “The Ghosts Within”
Engaging with these found vintage photographs, Deane covers the subjects with paint, subtracting the specific identity of each person and transforming them into anonymous hosts for the viewer to project upon. Deane states, “Through this haunting of the materials the ghosts become us, and we become the ghosts. We become the ghosts of our everyday.”
Catch us at 4PM tomorrow for a meet & greet on Nashville’s Art Gallery Day before FirstBank First Saturday! Two featured artists in #TheAlteredImage @holliechastain & @nick_deford will be here to meet with you—plus a little complimentary champagne, of course 🥂 This will be followed be an on-site filmed interview with the curator and artists for an upcoming promo video. Can’t think of a finer way to pre-crawl. See you there! @nashvillegalleryassociation
Special two-part exhibition The Altered Image opens this Saturday May 4th during FirstBank First Saturday Art Crawl _______________________________________
In our ever-increasing digital world, photographs have become a part of daily life. When people are not posting their own filtered photos, they spend hours looking into the digital lives of others. But there is something special about a vintage photograph. Instead of hitting a like, there was a time these images were collected and assorted j to albums and frames—allowing the opportunity to ponder the images’ backstories. Featured artists include @holliechastain @nick_deford @rkyhorton @lisakokin
The Altered Image is supported by Giving Up the Ghost, featuring the final showing of the “Ghost Photograph” series by @angeladeane
