Fusion 2008 an urban chic showcase of local culinary, visual and musical artists will feature an impressive roster of Nashville musicians, budding visual artists, trendy culinary delights, a must-see fashion show and a silent auction. This event, organized by The Foundation’s Young Professional Board, will benefit the annual Young Adult Cancer Survivor Retreats.
We are looking for artists who might want to donate a piece to be in the silent auction at City Hall and all the money made goes to the Foundation. Also, we will be taking submissions for a show at Project A gallery. They only have enough room for 25 pieces, so the artist will have to pick one piece to submit for review (by Project A owners and curators) and will be contacted if they are in that show as well.
If anyone is interested, please have them email me with their name and web site at email@example.com
Friday, February 8, 6:30 p.m.
Rechter Room, FREE
Be inspired and take this opportunity to hear from artists Pradip Malde and Greg Pond as they discuss the thoughts and processes behind their work.
Both artists have exhibited around the country and the world, and are currently teaching at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
Pond, assistant professor of art, conveys ideas through unexpected combinations of images and media seeking to engage the viewer to recast perceptions of the world by making new measuring sticks out of sound, light, and objects.
Malde, professor of fine arts and author of Poetry of Form, is a photographic artist who melds experience, focus, time, movement, and space to create compelling views of the world.
