Resident Artist Opportunity at Dahlhauser Gallery in Edgehill Village

Resident Artist Opportunity at Dahlhauser Gallery
located at Edgehill Village

1200 Villa Place Suite 105
Nashville, TN 37212

My name is Nancy Dahlhauser. I recently opened a gallery in Edgehill Village (east end of Music Row). We’re located in a renovated industrial building (formerly White Way Cleaners). I have an 800 square foot space with high walls and an open ceiling. The facility houses three restaurants, a coffee shop, a bakery, a gelato shop, a children’s clothing store, three artist’s studios, a hair salon, a spa, and several other small businesses. It’s an eclectic setting with amazing potential.
The gallery supports local artists and crafters. I currently have fine art by Nancy Dahlhauser, Timothy Tyler, and Katherine Saporiti. We also carry pottery and jewelry.
I am seeking a resident artist who will pay $725.00 a month and 10% commission on artwork sold at the gallery. There is a studio/work space which is located in the back of the gallery. It has amazing natural light.
The benefits to a resident artist includes the following:

    Insurance for fine art that is housed at the gallery
    ¼ of the wall space that rotates every six weeks to include window space
    public gallery which is open five days a week (Tuesday – Saturday)
    advertising (such as a ½ page ad in “Nashville Arts” magazine)
    participation in the monthly Edgehill Village Art & Music Crawl
    participation in gallery shows
    participation in special events (such as the Edgehill Artisan Fair, Franklin Jazz Festival, and Oktoberfest in Germantown)
    a space to conduct workshops
    a space to teach private lessons in the studio area
    participation in the “Mad Mimi” Email Promotion System and Dahlhauser Gallery’s website

Brenda Stein – Woodturner: March 22, 6 pm – 7 pm

Kim Barrick – Painter: Tuesday, March 27, 1 pm – 2 pm

Currently exhibiting their works inMetro Parks’ Centennial Art Center’s gallery, painters Kim Barrick and Carolyn Riess-Dodson and woodturner Brenda Stein will each present Gallery Talks atMetro Parks’ Centennial Art Center’s gallery. The artists will discuss their works that are on exhibit, their artistic motivations, inspirations and techniques.

Centennial Art Center’s Director, Brenda McSurley says, “We know the public will enjoy hearing Carolyn, Kim and Brenda discuss their art in a relaxed, informal setting. These talks also offer a great opportunity to ask the artists specific questions about individual works.”

The first Gallery Talk takes place on Tuesday, March 13, 6 pm – 7 pm and will feature Murfreesboro, Tennessee painter,Carolyn Riess-Dodson. Inspired by both the natural world and her inner, imaginary world, she says, “I want to share my version of the potentially colorful countryside that surrounds us. It's not just brown and green any longer. Then there's that inner world of fantasy, archetypes and ancient prototypes fueling my mental, right-brain engine that I've just got to get on canvas!"

Nashville, Tennessee woodturnerBrenda Stein’s Gallery Talk will be held on Thursday, March 22, 6 pm – 7 pm. She describes her approach to her art form, “Combining the perfect curve with the richness of our Tennessee trees brings me great joy… Every tree has a story. Each piece is the voice of the tree inspiring deeper connections with our natural world.” Brenda appeared as the featured artist in a Nashville Public Television program,Tennessee Crossroads: Brenda Stein, Woodturner. Additional works by Brenda Stein have been added to this exhibit since its February 2nd opening.

PainterKim Barrick of Nashville, Tennessee, will present her Gallery Talk on Tuesday, March 27, 1 pm – 2 pm. A champion of plein aire painting (painting landscapes while outdoors), she foundedThe Chestnut Group, a nonprofit alliance of landscape artists. “Nature is my True North…” Kim shares, “There is always something that evolved from the earth that draws my attention... Nature is chaos in motion. I just try to paint it and get the exquisite pieces – be engaged and humbled by the rare – and attempt to not miss anything.”

The Art Center’s gallery manager, Lena Arice Lucas, says, “We are so pleased with this outstanding exhibition and the public’s enthusiastic response. There are so many talented, creative people in the Nashville area, and it is such an honor to exhibit works by these three exceptional visual artists. I am so excited that they have generously offered to conduct Gallery Talks and share their time discussing their art with the public.”

The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority

About the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority’s Percent for Art Program

The Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority pioneered the Percent for Art Program in 1959, becoming the first program in the United States to make the commissioning of fine arts an integral part of the urban renewal process. The

Percent for Art Program requires that redevelopers who build on land acquired from and assembled by the Redevelopment Authority must budget at least one percent of the total building construction costs toward the commissioning of original, site-specific works of art. The Percent for Art program encourages Redevelopers to conceive of innovative applications for public art, and to create work that engages the public and challenges them to think about their surroundings in new and exciting ways. Each art project is more than a single or isolated work – the public space in its entirety is considered, in order to make the greatest contribution to the urban fabric, the streetscape, and the places that citizens populate. Each project is completely site-specific.

Over the next few weeks, when you visit the Frist Center, arm yourself with a sketchbook and a pencil (only pencils may be used in the galleries) or with your iPad using an app such as Penultimate. Take a look around while you dine in the Café, peruse the galleries and lobby, or sit in the Turner Courtyard. Select something that stands out to you at the Frist Center and sketch it!

 Once you return home (or to your studio), choose from one of the 10 thematic groups from the current exhibition To See as Artists See: American Art from The Phillips Collection and listed below and create a two-dimensional work of art that depicts what you, the artist, sees when you visit the Frist Center.

           In it's fourth year, the Arts Council is proud to present this evening series for 2012.
Some of the most renowned local artists will share an up-close and personal glimpse into their lives and their work.

Harmon's art education began early in his childhood. He recounts, "My Grandmother was a painter...a really great one....and as she lived in the same neighborhood as my parents, I spent a lot of time as a child in her home and studio." He also took a few summer art classes as a child. "That's about it for art education, but it was a good one," he comments. 

For 11 years, from 1986 to early 1998, Harmon divided this time between permanent studio/residences in Paris, France, and Brentwood. The Harmon work is well represented in numerous galleries, museums, major corporate and private collections in Europe, Asia and the United States. His work is in collections in the Tennessee State Museum, the Tampa Museum of Art, the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the Museum of the Principality of Monaco and the city of Caen, France.

In 1994, Harmon's major exhibition of his work at the invitation of officials of Caen, France, was curated by Galerie Dėprez-Bellorget of Paris for the official art show of the D-Day 50th anniversary remembrances.

Harmon is the recipient of many major international painting awards, including the Prix de la Ville de Monaco and the Prix de la Sociėtė E.J.A. at the XXIV Prix International D'Art Contemporain de Monte-Carlo.  The Harmon painting, Walking Man, from this exhibition/competition was chosen by Her Serene Highness, Princess Caroline of Monaco for her private collection. In connection with the Prix de las Ville de Monaco, a canvas was commissioned by the Principality of Monaco for its permanent collection.

A comprehensive book, “Paul Harmon: Crossing Borders,” is now in print. This 360-page color volume covers canvases from 1961 to mid-2009. Over 526 paintings are featured along with an essay by Art Historian Robert L. McGrath, professor of art history, emeritus, Dartmouth University.

Harmon's work is featured in the Elmore Leonard Showtime movie, "Pronto," directed by Jim McBride and starring Peter Falk, Glenne Headly and James LeGros.

Today, Harmon lives and works in a 1793 National Register of Historic Places farmhouse and studio in Brentwood. To see Harmon's work, please visit www.paulharmon.com.
