Printmaker Bryce McCloud hand picks Nashville artists to tell the city’s history at the newly renovated Noelle

With 224 rooms, Noelle—formerly known as Noel Place—reimagines a historic hotel built in 1930. As one of Nashville’s first luxury hotels opened by the prominent Noel family, Noel Place was the most modern space at the time, gracing the city with beautiful Art Deco design. As Nashville evolved, the hotel transitioned away from its original purpose, but its strong architectural bones created a unique opportunity 78 years later for MAKEREADY to step in.

Venturing into Thin Air

Photography has always been Kathy Root’s first love. Ten years ago, she opened KMR Arts Gallery in Washington Depot and she has been mounting cutting-edge exhibits ever since.

Her latest exhibition features the work of Catherine Erb and it has a special meaning for Root.

The New Southern | Artist Spotlight: Catherine Erb

We find peace and stillness in the clouds, this is where we dream and this is where we take flight... and it was within her cloud series I was originally introduced to the talented mixed media fine-art photographer Catherine Erb, who seeks beauty, inspiration, and identity in changing perspectives, shifting landscapes, flashes of moments in time that allow her and her work’s admirers to break away from it all. Every piece of Catherine’s art illustrates a moment of reflection, creating a sense of hope and self-discovery, while capturing the essence of being present in the moment - a gentle reminder in the midst of our busy lives.

Anne Siems: Awakening the Spirit

Anne Siems considers herself a conduit of visual communication, as she says, “a visceral prophet.” She transmits inner and outer worlds as figurative artworks filled with feeling and intrigue. External factors such as her role in her family, her health, social political upheavals, the environment, spiritual practices, and technology affect her artworks unconsciously as she focuses her attention on making compositions that resonate on their own. She explains, “I like my work to be a mystery and that it expresses itself through discernment. It’s obscure, and I don’t really work from my brain, which allows me to make a bigger statement. I want it to really meet all of us at a level where we aren’t analyzing it. Where we are just letting it penetrate us.”

William Eggleston, at 78, in a New Key

William Eggleston is widely considered one of modern photography’s most influential artists. The prolific piano playing that’s been his other lifelong passion, however, has remained more of an insiders’ secret.

“People know my photographs because they’re published in books and shown in galleries and museums and so forth, and yet I don’t perform music in public, ever — only in front of good friends who really want to hear it and who really listen,” Mr. Eggleston, who is 78, said in a recent phone interview from his Memphis apartment.

Fall Guide 2017: Art

Mark Bradley-Shoup’s abstract studies of architectural spaces feature exacting brushwork in scenes permeated with Zen stillness. Wolf Kahn’s paintings are also noted for their sense of stillness, but the artist’s preoccupation with natural landscapes makes his work a perfect complement to Bradley-Shoup’s.
