Anthology: Visual Narratives from Nashville’s Print Community Opens Friday
Nashville is renowned for its love of storytelling in words, images, and voices. For years, the city has been home to major publishing houses, printing presses, nationally recognized writing programs, and great authors, poets, journalists, and songwriters. Anthology: Visual Narratives from Nashville’s Print Community is a juried exhibition that celebrates this ongoing tradition by presenting the works of individual artists and small presses who use a variety of printing techniques to tell stories through images and text.
The work exhibited in Anthology was selected by a jury, consisting of Katie Baldwin, assistant professor of book arts and printmaking at the University of Alabama in Huntsville; Liz Coleman, reference librarian and galleries coordinator at the Nashville Public Library; and Mark Scala, the Frist Center’s chief curator. The exhibition opens Friday and will be on view in the Conte Community Arts Gallery through February 7.
