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 yearâ€™s theme is The Wizard of Oz.
