Nashville, TN, November 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Robyn Morshead has been painting since she was little. Her growing love of not only art, but also the artists themselves, brought her to create an art show with a twist: fund the arts by promoting the artist. Now, for the second year in a row, she’s done it again and pulled together an awe-inspiring art show replete with art from legends like Michael McBride, James Threalkill and Juliana Ericson. The show: Artlightenment.
“If you elevate the artist, you elevate the culture—that is what this art show is about,” says Morshead, “it’s also about artists inspiring other artists and helping the artist to do better in his career.”
The show featured a workshop delivered by local artist Michael McBride. He was very impressed by the art show and what it did for the artists attending—“I can see a positive change in them from this,” he said. Morshead was very impressed by McBride’s workshop, “he is probably the best artist we could have gotten,” she continued, “this is giving people the opportunity to hear from experienced artists who are mentoring them and helping them… no one else does this.”
Artlightenment was held in the historic Fall School Building, which has now been beautifully renovated by the Church of Scientology. “Artlightenment is about the artist and the Church of Scientology is about helping artists overcome their individual barriers so they do better in their career,” said Morshead, “we couldn’t have picked a better location.”
“The whole show was elegant and classy; that’s what people really noticed—it wasn’t just thrown together with artwork hanging from chicken wire,” Morshead continued, “we had many well-known artists featured… and their work was presented very professionally and looked great.”
The Artlightenment artist showcase takes place annually in November at the Church of Scientology, 1130 8th Avenue South. For more information, visit www.artlightenment.com.
