Donelson Station: Art That Speaks April 24, 2009. Deadline: April 17

Donelson Station will be hosting a new exhibit Art That Speaks. Pieces
must be in by Friday April 17. There will be a special reception for all
artist, Friday, April 24, 5 p.m. Wine and appetizers will be provided.
The exhibit will display contemporary mediums where artist have brought
a voice to that particular piece. People say that art speaks to them in
ways words cannot. When words fall short, a work of art can tell a
story, express a feeling, recreate a memory and serve as a vehicle of
expression. Art allows for validation of emotions and a way to
communicate with each other. This exhibit will display local artist from
the Nashville area. If you would like to participate in this exhibit or
future exhibits call 883-8375 or bring your pieces in during operating
hours, Monday-Thursday 8am-7pm, Friday 8am-3pm, and Saturday 8am-12noon.

The exhibit will be displayed in the halls during our production of The
Producers, which bring over 1,000 people to our center! The exhibit
dates are April 24th-May 31st. You can pick up your pieces the following

Please bring your pieces (if they are pictures/paintings, we ask that
they be framed/mounted, ready to hang) to the center and deliver them to
the director Jane Schnelle or program director Mel Shicks. Artist can
enter more than one piece in the exhibit.

Be sure to have on the back of each piece: Your name, (name of your
studio or business name, if you have one), your phone number, the name
or title of the piece, the work or artist that inspired this piece, and
the price you want or put "not for sale." Also a short bio is
appreciated (if you would like to hang our bio next to your piece,
please bring it framed and ready to hang).

If you do wish to sell your piece, 75% of the total sale goes to the
owner, the other 25% will benefit the FiftyForward and Senior Center for
the Arts. Remember, this is a great opportunity to become more known as
an artist, as the plays have sellout crowds every week!

Art pieces will be hung by Jane Schnelle, Mel Shicks, and Roberta
Steinmetz. Each piece will be given an identification plaque with
information about it. There is no limit on the number of submissions as
long as there is space in the hallways (first come first serve policy).

Thank you for your consideration, and we hope that you will participate
in this exhibit!
