Zeitgeist Gallery Zeitgeist is a contemporary, fine art gallery that emphasizes local artists and does so in the context of what we see happening locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

Founded in 1994, Zeitgeist is a beacon of art in the Nashville community.

"And now for something completely different: Vadis Turner opens Window Treatments at Zeitgeist on Saturday. Zeitgeist continues to opt out of evening receptions while these Omicron numbers are still dropping, but they’ll be open from noon until 6 p.m. for visitors who just have to be the first to see this display of massive sculptures from one of Nashville’s most accomplished creators. That said, visitors who are choosing to hit evening receptions on Saturday should still plan for an after-hours run by Zeitgeist: Turner won a Current Art Fund/Tri-Star Arts grant to help fund this exhibition, which also includes lighting and projection mapping by Mike Kluge and Jonny Kingsbury, with sound design by Emery Dobyns. Visitors can enjoy the illuminated display and hear its hissing and cracking soundscape from the street, and the installation will be visible through Zeitgeist’s windows 24 hours a day through March 19." Joe Nolan in Nashville Scene

“But the most magical piece in the show is June 22, 1633, a roughly 10×4 foot light box Allison covered with a huge cyanotype photogram of a star map that recreates the night sky on the day of Galileo’s recantation of his heliocentric model of the solar system before the Inquisition. Allison painstakingly used a pin to poke holes through the paper to represent every individual star on the map, allowing the light box to illuminate them from below. The result is an exquisitely moving work that speaks to the vastness of space, the tremendum of time, and the miraculous beauty of our still strange and mysterious world.” @mightyjoenolan for @burnaway on Caroline Allison’s Behind the Moon. On view through Saturday.

Crawl Space: November 2021

"We gave Caroline Allison’s A History of Snow a Best of Nashville nod in 2020, and the photographer’s latest display at Zeitgeist expands her explorations of environmental themes in a display that blurs the strange and the serene. Allison’s work once focused on documenting idiosyncratic interiors in unique spaces, but since she’s taken her camera outdoors her images have become much more abstract and compellingly mysterious. Allison shoots on film using a large format 4-by-5 field camera, and she manipulates her images of oceans, moonrises, rivers and trees in-camera, sans Photoshop. She also uses cyanotype prints to capture dewy spiderwebs and to record the light leaking through the splat of exploded snowballs. It’s all gorgeous stuff, and we couldn’t be more excited to see Allison continuing to broaden this beautiful body of work in Behind the Moon. Zeitgeist will host an opening reception on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m., and Allison will be in attendance after 4 p.m." Joe Nolan, Nashville Scene.

“Zeitgeist Gallery will open In the Gallery, Looking at the Past, Present and Future on July 10. Zeitgeist’s space-sharing with Manuel Zeitlin’s architecture studio makes reopening the space to public events extra challenging, but it won’t feel like the old days until we can begin our crawling at Zeitgeist just like we used to. Nashville native, artist and curator Carlton Wilkinson’s In the Gallery art space was a staple of the North Nashville art scene from 1987 to 2007. Wilkinson’s curatorial ambitions have now morphed into his Wilkinson Art art brokerage business. Wilkinson is a founding figure of North Nashville’s contemporary art scene, and his decades of work as an artist, curator and educator give him an insider’s perspective on what the Jefferson Street art scene has been, and where it might be going. In the Gallery is both an overview of Wilkinson’s work as a curator and community builder as well as a creative commentary about one of Nashville’s most vital creative scenes by the people who built it and continue to evolve it. The show includes work from a long roster of artists including Samuel Dunson, David Driskell, Barbara Bullock, Sammie Nicely, Sam Gilliam, Craig Brabson and more. The show also includes a display of works representing the broader spectrum of the art of the African diaspora — a thoughtful addition that brings clarity and context to Wilkinson’s visual storytelling. Zeitgeist will be open for a preview of the show this Saturday from noon until 6 p.m., and the show will officially open during those same hours on Saturday, July 10. The gallery can also be visited by appointment. Masks are required.”
