Frist Center for the Visual Arts
Artist's Forum: Off the Wall Art Group
Thursday, August 13, 6:30 p.m.
Rechter Room, FREE <----new website

Artist’s Forum is a program in which Nashville-based and regional emerging and recognized artists discuss the thoughts and processes behind their work. Participants are encouraged to come and be a part of the dialogue about the artistic process.

The five members of Off the Wall Art Group (Janet Heilbronn, Mahlea Jones, Jenny Luckett, Jaime Raybin, and Iwonka Waskowski) met and formed their group while they were students at Watkins College of Art and Design. The members all share a similar artistic language, involving a foundation in conceptual art, a curiosity about materials, and an interest in making work with personal resonance.

Off the Wall shows are curated, installed and promoted by the artists.
These shows were initially held in alternative spaces as one-night community events that included an open dialogue between artists and viewers. In recent years, the group has begun to exhibit in more established galleries, such as Dangenart Gallery and Twist Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tennessee.
