Call for Works -Belmont Mansion Annual Fashion show

Belmont Mansion hosts an Annual Fashion show each fall and this is our 30th anniversary. We have the longest running fashion show in Nashville! There is always a popular and well-known designer at each show. We have had Carolina Herrera, Gustavo Cadile, Tuleh—just to name a few. This year we are trying to shake things up a bit and thus holding TWO shows. One will be sponsored by Gus Mayer and take place in Belle Meade Country Club and the other will be hosted by Posh and hopefully will be at The Standard Restaurant. We are doing away with the usual silent auction and replacing it with an “open market” type environment. There will be vendors for all over Nashville as well as a few service booths. This year we are trying to help the local Nashville economy as well. We are looking for at least 25 donated works of art ranging in price from $50 to $500. This will be great exposure for any new artist. Their name will be mentioned on our website (which will be newly designed by the time of the show), in the program which will be handed out during both shows, and in the invitation if the works are donated by August 31st. Also, we will offer a FREE membership to those artists who participate and a special reception held at the mansion (date TBD.) We will take 2-D, 3-D and everything from paintings to sculpture to photography.

All proceeds from the show benefit the mission of the mansion which is the continued restoration and preservation of this Nashville landmark.

Please email if you have additional questions.

P.S. This is also a tax deduction.
