Are there many outlets for an artist (paint/canvas) in Nashville, e.g: retail art galleries, exhibitions?

One of my favorites is Garage Majal in East Nashville. Abby, too, is 100% correct...Artrageous is a great sampling of the Nashville visual arts community.

Some good things have been mentioned here. You should try the Parthenon and Centennial Art Center for exhibitions. There really is a growing arts scene in Nashville. Help us make it better when you get here!

Nashville has a growing artist community that is really starting to thrive. Many years ago, I worked for the Greater Nashville Arts Foundation and it was a pretty strong community then, and ten years later, there are more galleries in Nashville than ever. I actually have a friend who just opened an art gallery. I will talk to him and see what I can learn for you.

Next month is our 20th annual Artrageous which is a huge event, held to benefit a local organization, Nashville CARES. The event is basically an art gallery crawl through about 15 galleries in town, followed by a huge blowout party at a themed location each year. This year’s theme is The Wizard of Oz. You can find info about this at

kefran, There is a strong artist community in the Neashville area. Obviously it is more music driven however there are numeorus galleries and shops where local artists sell their paintings, sculpture and other designs. The central area of town is primarily where this business / work occurs. nashville is trying to break the shckles of being just a Contry Music mecca.

One of my favorite art festivals is coming soon in the next months. It's called the Tomato Arts Festival and is centered around the Garage Majal gallery in urban East Nashville.

For some reason, the link I supplied just a few minutes ago, is difficult to access from Trulia. You almost have to double click it when it goes to the address bar using the arrow key and press go... but it is the correct address. You may just have to type the address in instead of using the link.
