The Artlightenment festival, now an annual tradition in Music City, combines several art forms into one breathtaking event in November. This is the seventh year of the festival which continues to grow and change while inviting even greater participation from the community. The 2015 theme is Music City Mystique: Behind the Art.
Saturday, November 7th at 5:30pm is the opening reception. Guests will be able to view the art on display and meet the artists.
Robyn Morshead who founded the Artlightenment festival says, “Each year local artists submit their art for the show and each year I am absolutely blown away by the artistic skill and expression we have in our community.”
The art show is hosting 47 local artists this year including the three featured artists: celebrity photographer Raeanne Rubenstein, whose photographs have recently been added to the catalogue of the prestigious Gagosian Gallery in New York City; Anne Goetze, a prolific artist whose Annecey, France Nun Series is scheduled to tour the United States; and Roy Laws, whose bold and expressive art hangs in private collections in the United States and Internationally.
Additionally, Laws will deliver a Live Painting Event of Rubenstein’s celebrated photograph of Martina McBride during the Artlightenment festival. Also during the festival, comedian and artist Bob Hutcheson will be creating a Community Coloring Experience, followed by his hilarious comedy show.
Artlightenment this year will be chock-full of inspirational talks, workshops, film screenings, a fashion show and much, much more.
Morshead said: “I am thrilled to give our local artists and filmmakers an opportunity to share their art with the community. I invite everyone to come out and enjoy the experience.”
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.
