Opening this Saturday May 4th 6-9 PM, a special two-part exhibition: The Altered Image & Giving Up the Ghost

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 into albums and frames—allowing the opportunity to ponder the images’ backstories.

Using a variety of artistic techniques—collage, paint, embroidery, weaving and more—the artists featured in The Altered Image exhibition have taken the history of these vintage photographs into their own hands, altering the images to produce new narratives, new ideas and new ways of seeing.

Back in July of 2014, Greg Bryant + Paul Horton + Elijah Holt + James DaSilva brought the Greg Bryant Expansion to the downtown art crawl, performing outdoors in front of The Arts Company. Take a look back on the set with these photos:
"Children with Ci******es'' A BIG oil painting with a heavily carved frame. The carved ornaments reflect the theme of the painting: which is children facing eternal adult temptations. This one has never been seen in Nashville.
"American Jesus"
He is a product of the American "conservative" imagination. He basically cares only about money and only the USA. Pictured nearby is my wife Anna [in black dress]. Nearby her sister and brother- in-law are present. This is a large painting not completely visible here. Unshown, there are many hand carved ornaments for the frame. The presence of Anna and her family give an idea of the large scale of the painting.
Thank you Anne Brown, for all the hard work and dedication to the arts you have poured into Nashville with The Arts Company. We will miss being your neighbor! ❤️
With Anne Brown at its helm, The Arts Company was one of Nashville's most influential galleries. Recently, the gallery changed owners. We spoke with Brown about her recent departure in this week's issue.
Opening reception for "The Storied South" at The Arts Company is THIS SATURDAY, October 5th from 6-9PM. Featured artists are Ke Francis, Charles Keiger, and Johnny Nelson.

Show hangs from OCTOBER 5-24

As we close TALES OF HOFFMANN, we also say goodbye to our 2019 Mary Ragland Emerging Artists; Chelsea Friedlander, soprano, Sara Crigger, mezzo-soprano, Darius Terran Thomas, tenor, and Brent Hetherington, Bass Baritone.

It has been a pleasure to work with these talented vocalists! We are happy to say that we will welcome Darius and Brent back to the stage in our next production, The Cradle Will Rock.

Songwriter/composer/photographer Stacy Widelitz captured these beautiful images of the 2019 Mary Ragland Emerging Artists in rehearsal (you can catch Stacy's work this June at The Arts Company).
Here is my latest painting entitled Emergence Oil 40x30 Please tell me what you think about it and please visit my web page at michaelmccreless.com.
