Nashville art show FAMN Art Show | Anjeanette Illustration | Turnip Green Creative Reuse |

Excited my work will be a part of an excited Free Art Movement group show this week!

Here is the press release info

"Please join us in the Green Gallery Thursday, December 17, for a very special exhibit featuring friends of the Free Art Movement Nashville (FAMN). FAMN is a group that is committed to sharing art in Nashville. Artists in this group make art for anyone that is willing to seek it out. This show honors their dedication to making Nashville and art-filled city. The art featured was created with reuse in mind, and is reasonably priced, most below $100. Each piece supports the local artist that created it and Turnip Green Creative Reuse. Local educator and musician, Ryan Mullenix, will be providing music for us.
We will have a full artist marketplace, a make it and take it project, membership sign-ups, and as always, food, drink and great friends will be in the house. Our friends at Platetone Printmaking, Paper and Book Arts will host a fun art making open studio."

Whats FAMN? I have talked about it a lot beforehere and on my Instagram

Check out the other posts and the

FAMN Facebook page for more info.

I grabbed a bunch of stuff to create on at TGR- and was seriously overwhelmed with options. I felt like touching everything in the various bins and boxes. TGR is basically a magical thrift shop art store of tools and possibilities! I learned something about myself, which I pretty much do every time I create- but this time I learned about incorporating levels, made goals about how much more practice with different mediums and shapes I needed, and realized how much I loathe painting on ceramic. Love wood, sticking to that from now on!

Disconnection

2015, ceramic & glass tiles, acrylic paint, on wood. 

This piece is significant for me as it represents dependence on devices, and my disconnection from self, environment, and spirituality. What makes us always available and connected to each other results in rooms of silent people communicating only with their thumbs. Being active on social media and hyper aware of each others lives also allows people to trance out from reality. Service or battery disruption leads to a person disconnecting from their thoughts, feelings, memories or sense of identity. Its personal-the screen goes blank and the connection to life seems ‘unreal’ and is lost.

As always influenced by traditional Iconography style and colours.

Very soon an amazing young lady will be saying hello to the world. Sadly, I am unable to make Shamekas baby shower due to sessions- Saturdays are sorta my Tuesdays I suppose? However,  when I look back at these photos we took last year by the symphony I wonder if they did not already have a an idea of what happy magic was in store? Look at those smiles, that glow! Hmmm... best wishes and all the love you guys as you await your baby girl!!!

 

Shameka and Dakota are active members of their Hendersonville community at Lifechurch.tv as well astoastmasters, and Schermerhorn symphony volunteers. On the night of a special volunteer honorary dinner we met up for some photos in their adopted city!

I am not entirely sure what it is about them that appeals to me the most. The intricate tiny nature, the surprises inside, the history. As far as I know there is no Russian ancestry in my background, yet as a proud All American Mutt who even knows! I have always been reverent and enamored of Orthodox religious imagery, and of course of painting directly on wood or wooden panels. Maybe it is just the possibilities they each offer, the time love and craftsmanship in each one.
