Woman, by Jennifer Hinson

Abstract, by Roberta Winjum
The JLMG2 Gallery will feature the work of Roberta Winjum. Her work is based on a love of nature, often featuring trees, flowers, and water. Her traditional college-based training includes oils, representational and abstract themes, and a type of batik that uses melted colored wax in place of dyes for its colors. A candle flame melts various colors of crayons, which drip onto cloth, followed by a black dye bath. The lack of control of the dripping wax creates abstraction, but the inspiration is nature.
Water Lilies, by Roberta Winjum
The Sig Held Gallery will feature the work from of Turnip Green Creative Reuse (TGCR). TGCR has served Nashville for over 11 years, by taking donated material from individuals, organizations, and businesses and providing a storefront where customers “name their price” for material. TGCR believes everyone deserves access to education and materials, opportunities for creative experiences, and inspiration in a safe and welcoming community.
This exhibit features 13 artists united by their passion for sustainability. All the artwork in this show incorporates up-cycled or repurposed material. Sustainability, education and art are the cornerstones of TGCR, which also hosts monthly art exhibits featuring local artists, offers free workshops to the public, and provides aftercare art programming to children at several metro public schools.
Since its inception in 2011, TGCR has diverted over a million pounds from the landfill and into the hands of creative individuals. Stop by the new location at: 1014 3rd Ave S, Nashville, TN 37210
