December in the Galleries: Featured Work of SNAP Photographers, Nashville Collage Collective
Bubbles at the Standing Stones
The Janet Levine March Gallery and JLMG2 gallery will feature the work of the Society of Nashville’s Artistic Photographers. SNAP has become known for its excellence in fine art photography, creating images that make the viewer smile, think, question or wonder. Members’ work has been shown not only in local and regional exhibitions and collections, but also in national and international forums.

The current exhibition at the Gordon JCC is curated by Jonathan Trundle, an associate professor in MTSU’s department of media arts in the photography program. Trundle selected 40 images that “explore various emotions, feelings, experiences, ideas and styles that are engaging, stimulating, creative and are sources of imagination for the viewers.”

In 2004, a small group of Nashville photographers met to form an informal group that concentrates on the creative aspect of photography. Today, SNAP provides a forum for discussing the work of members and notable photographers. Building on the advantage of being small and informal, SNAP enables members to have active conversations with one another as well as outside experts – sharing wisdom, projects and insights.
In short, SNAP is dedicated to promoting fine art photography in Nashville.

The Sig Held Gallery will feature the work of The Nashville Collage Collective. The Nashville Collage Collective is a unique forum where local artists can share materials and ideas while they support each other in the exploration of collage techniques, collaboration and exhibition of work. Members have gathered regularly for the past 12 years to work side by side at free-form workshops which have taken place at venues such as Turnip Green Creative Reuse, Zeitgeist Gallery and the home studio of organizer Lisa Haddad.

Artists come from a wide array of artistic backgrounds – assemblagists, sculptors, fiber artists, painters and collaborators – all bringing their unique techniques and processes to collage. This year, they present a great variety of wall-collages as well as 3D items that are more gift-oriented in the Gordon JCC’s Sig Held Gallery – over 20 artists will be participating, and the range of experimentation and variety of materials is stunning!
The Senior Lounge continues to feature the work of Marilynn Derwenskus.
The House gallery will feature the Under One Roof collaborative exhibit.
The exhibition dates are Dec. 1 to 30.
The exhibitions are free and open to the public. Attendees will need to sign in at the front desk. For more information, contact the GJCC at 615-354-1699, curator Carrie Mills at email@example.com, or go to www.nashvillejcc.org.
