NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Artists who have had to cancel shows and close studios because of COVID-19 are getting a hand-up.
Advertising and billboard companies are displaying artwork for free, including on Blackbird Media's The Nashville Sign.
The downtown art crawl in Franklin on Sept. 6 will feature Brentwood artist Alison Fullerton’s encaustic guitars, deer heads and paintings, according to a release.
Fullerton just returned to Brentwood “after living overseas for three years, where she spent her time traveling and learning about the lives and rituals of the people she met.”
Fullerton paints what she calls visual anthropologies — in the release it says that while anthropologists explore different cultures and people by collecting photographs, she “expresses what she observes in her paintings.”
