Warehouse 521 in Nashville had a 3 day workshop with Catherine Kehoe I couldn't pass up! It was great working with Catherine again and meeting new artists. Interesting that many of them had a math or science background. Catherine's "Kehoe method" of drawing does lend itself to straight lines, angles, and shapes.
Reducing, subtracting and abstracting the drawing is my kind of art.
The Frist Art Museum in Nashville was really a delight in a variety of ways. The building itself was historic with great details. I think originally a post office. Although 2 hours of parking cost more than admission to the museum.
A Dorothea Lange show made me realize how much I can relate to her work and activism. Her record of the dust bowl, Japanese internment and a town that was flooded for a dam project.
There was also an impressionist show, made even better by a group of 4th graders who each wrote about a work in the gallery. What a treat. They were enthusiastic and insightful. It made me miss my Art in Motion days in Pennsylvania.
