A Season in the Southwest & other New Work
By artist Meg Garrett
Through July 20
This is Garrett's second solo show at the Art Center's Berger Gallery. While her first show focused on Tennessee landscape images in pastoral shades, her newest work draws on a recent visit to New Mexico and Arizona. Having gone there to see the landscape and the work of other artists who captured that environment on canvas, to be inspired and instructed by those preceding arts, Garrett "saw and felt the Southwest more intensely" than on prior visits - seeing now with her educated art eye. The images range from painted portraits of the landscape to pencil drawn portraits of people. Garrett's work displays an intimacy with place and person.
The Arts Center is located on 1424 John Bragg Highway, just west of the Woodbury. The Berger Gallery is free and open to the public. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. For more information check our website at or call 615-563-(ARTS) 2787.

One day while sneaking to the surface, Ariel witnesses a shipwreck and rescues Prince Eric, with whom she become instantly smitten.
