East Side Art Stumble

If you have actually never been to the East Side Art Stumble, tonight is an excellenta good time to obtain acquainted with the visual scene on the east side of the Cumberland River. In addition to tonight’s openings, April’s Stumble marks the event’s one-year anniversary– a major accomplishment for a regular monthly occurring that organizes openings and festivities in numerous galleries, shops and dining establishments throughout Inglewood and East Nashville. This month’s highlights include Lindsy Davis’ Unfavorable Area: The Perception of Depth at The Red Arrow Gallery, which discovers the artist using shape, line, gesture and tone to question Renaissance-era concepts about visual point of view, and to interfere with the human impulse to look for out visual patterns. DADU gallery will host Christopher Roberson’s animation-inspired show of illustrations and sculpture, River Rat. The Modern East photography gallery has ended up beingturned into one of my favorite Stumble spots, and I predict Beth Gwinn’s Where Were You in the ’70s? will draw the night’s most significant crowd. The local photographer’s collection of Nashville performance photos from the disco decade consists of vintage portraits of David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Tina Turner, The Who and lots ofa lot more.
