Artlightenment takes place in November at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville and organizers have just announced a seminar line-up to help artists.
The Artlightenment festival is an annual tradition in Music City which combines modern forms of many arts into one explosive event in November. This year will be the seventh year of the festival which continues to grow and change while inviting even greater participation from the area. The 2015 theme is Music City Mystique: Behind the Art.
The festival begins November 7th and ends with an awards ceremony and fashion show on November 14th. The film festival will be Nov 12-14th, and the complete schedule can be seen at artlightenment.com.
Prior to the festival, organizers have announced a special seminar by successful artist Owen York on “How to Sell Your Art.” York has said, “My dream is to bring art back from the dead, by bringing the artist back to life.” York’s originals, commissions and portraitures have sold nationwide and internationally. He specializes in acrylics & watercolors and his influences include Impressionism, Rock & Roll and commercial Illustration.
The next talk will be on “Music City Mystique” and will be delivered by celebrity photographer Raeanne Rubenstein.
The Artlightenment festival is all about uplifting artists, and according to the Artlightenment website, the festival was created from one artist’s dream to help artists by giving them a festival dedicated to no other cause than the art itself. “This is a festival about them, the artists, and what they have to say,” says Robyn Morshead who founded Artlightenment and continues to organize the show each year.
The Church of Scientology and Celebrity Centre Nashville is the festival host each year, in accordance with Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard’s vision to help all artists. More information and the complete schedule can be found online at artlightenment.com.
