June in the Galleries: Exhibits Feature the Work of The Tennessee Watercolor Society and Lolly Swicegood
The Janet Levine March Gallery will feature, “The Beauty of Watermedia," exhibit presented by the Middle Tennessee Region of the Tennessee Watercolor Society (TnWS). The artworks represent many styles and techniques of watermedia artists' paintings on paper. Watermedia includes watercolor, acrylics, water based inks and gouache. Paper choices are as varied as the many brands offered, each providing different textures and surfaces that meet the preference of the artist. The Tennessee Watercolor Society, currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary, is an open non-profit volunteer organization for watermedia artists. TnWS has been impacting the visual arts and culture of Tennessee since 1971 through watermedia exhibitions, programming, outreach and educational opportunities.

The Sig Held Gallery will feature an exhibit of work by artist Lolly Swicegood. Lolly’s paintings experiment with texture and she finds her inspiration through music. It is this exploration that informs her use of LPs, CDs, and recording tape in her pieces. This is Lolly’s third exhibit in the Gordon JCC galleries.
The J House Gallery features the ongoing exhibit, Under One Roof. This exhibit is a collaboration with other city organizations and focuses on social themes with the purpose of fostering understanding and healing societal injustices.
The exhibitions are free and open to the public. Any attendees will need to wear masks and sign in at the front desk. For more information, contact the GJCC at 615.356-7170, Curator Carrie Mills at firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to www.nashvillejcc.org
