Edgehill Muses features works by John Baeder, DeFord Bailey, William Edmondson, Skye Gilkerson, Jodi Hays, Courtney Adair Johnson, Alan LeQuire, Andrew O’Brien, Mark Schlicher, Macon St. Hilaire, James Threalkill, Scott Wise and Louise Dahl Wolfe.
The curator is Rachel Bubis, gallery manager of E.T. Burk and gallery director of Seed Space. “I grew up very close to Edgehill and have observed over the years the multitude of changes for this historic neighborhood,” Bubis said. “Edgehill Muses offers a glance into the future within the context of Nashville’s struggle to manage the problems that come with explosive growth.”
Works by Jodi Hays address this, including “Untitled” (oil on panel). The colorful paintings of buildings delineated by imagery of flags, fences and grids demarcate borders of built environments. Hays describes her artistic process as a “negotiation of restraint and abandon.”
