    Art Creates a City

    T wo fabulous exhibits kick off the busy February art scene. The Phillips Collection from Washington, D.C., opens February 3 at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts with works by Rothko, Homer, Hopper, and Gottlieb, among others. Please check out our story on this historic collection starting on page 38. The Frist also plays host to British artists John Wood and Paul Harrison, who bring their sometimes-zany but always thought-provoking creations all the way from England. Read about this dynamic duo on page 55. Both shows again confirm that Nashville is capturing the attention of the international art world. It goes without saying that these are shows not to be missed. Kudos to the Frist.

    Jim and Janet Ayers of FirstBank wanted to adorn their new offices in the Baker Donelson Building on Third Avenue with Tennessee art. Long appreciated for their support and patronage of the arts, the Ayerses called upon Anne Brown to curate an extensive collection of Tennessee artists. Anne put the call out to galleries all over the state, and the result is a staggering collection of art numbering over 150 canvases, and that number will no doubt continue to grow. Thank you, Jim and Janet, from all of us for this thoughtful and meaningful gesture. You can read how the collection came together on page 27.

    We welcome Deborah Walden to our team here at Nashville Arts Magazine. Deborah has been with us from day one as a freelance writer but now joins us full time as our staff writer and just about everything else that we can throw at her. We are delighted to have her talents on board.

    On February 10, David Lipscomb Campus School will transform its gymnasium into a bustling art gallery. Over 1,000 works of art by 53 professional artists will be displayed as part of the schools eighth annual Art Event. The fine art sale and exhibit is a weekend-long celebration of local art that is free and open to the public. A silent auction of art donated to the school will be up for bids. DLCS Director of Advancement Debbie

    Lambert says, We are thrilled that the Nashville community has embraced this fine art sale benefiting our schools academic programs. The opportunity to visit with the artists makes selecting artwork a very personal and unique experience. Leatha Frost, the featured artist for this years festival, is a native West Tennessean. Frosts imaginative, lush paintings use vibrant colors to interpret her travels throughout

    Europe. A portion of the Art Event proceeds benefit school programs and facilities at David Lipscomb Campus School. Friday, February 10, through Sunday, February 12.

    We introduced readers to Danielle Duers art creations in our January issue. Fans of her work can now adorn their homes with printed pillows that feature her artwork. Duers paintings are printed in saturated colors on linen cotton canvas with a medium-weight, cotton-blend fabric on the back. The artists whimsical, haunting images are complemented by fanciful, layered details. Seamstresses at Duers studio, Simple Syrup Design House, which is co-owned by Mandy McNeil, finished these lovely little gems. Duer says, We are dedicated to creating lush and emotion-driven art in unique ways for artful people around the world. The pillows are currently sold at Nest Interiors, Art & Invention Gallery, and Simple Syrup Design House.
