Klaus Kallenberger

March 7 - June 4, 2006


Klaus Kallenberger resides in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and has been a designer most of his life. Whether teaching design at the university level or completing his next quilt, his work exudes an awareness of the systems of balance, contrasting colors, pattern, texture and shape.

Klaus recalls, "The quilt I slept with for many years became so worn it became necessary to replace it. As I loved this quilt very much, I opted to design and sew a new cover for it. Sewing this quilt got me interested in making more. Two years later, I have designed and made 16 quilts with number 17 under construction.

I am still sleeping each night with my old quilt, but now under a new cover, so to speak."

Mary Spellings

March 7 - June 4, 2006

Fine Dining/Bank Walls

Mary Spellings is a west Tennessee native and currently residing in Mercer, Tennessee. She received her BA in art from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. She is known for her limited edition prints of west Tennessee landmarks. In her more than 30 years of painting, Mary's focus has been watercolor and pastel. She is a member of the Germantown Art League, the Kentucky Watercolor Society, the Jackson Art Association, and a signature member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society.

Mary credits a strong connection to family, friends, faith and community filling her soul with the love of color, shape, light, music and life. "I paint a person's character - relationships between people and animals and places. I want to encourage people to share their lives and cherish each precious moment, for each of us are only ripples in the water of time."

Keith Harmon

March 7 - June 4, 2006


Keith Harmon busily works in his Marathon Village studio in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee. After receiving his BFA from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro in 1995, Keith quickly began showing art in restaurants and exhibit spaces. Keith is one of the founding members of Plowhaus Co-Operative and actively exhibits with the Untitled artist group. His work is not limited to painting, Keith also creates ceramics, furniture and stained glass.

"The work in this exhibit is an expression of Nashville through its people." explains Keith. "This is the Nashville I experience through the language of painting. Metaphorically speaking, I take ownership, far beyond that of a proprietor, of the places I frequent - as do others in the community. It might be a familiar face at bar, restaurant, music venue, coffee shop or any attraction to a specific place that makes Nashville home. Nashville is a wonderful place to be."

"Flying Solo" Photographs of Tennessee on Concourse C by Joe Allen Photography. Open only to ticketed passengers or those on a tour.

Joe Allen Photography
Concourse C
March 4th - June 4th, 2006

Joe Allen is a Nashville native who specializes in wilderness photography. Inspired by an experience in his childhood when his pocket camera simply did not adequately capture the magnificence in nature, he resolved to return to the same spot with equipment and knowledge to get it right.

Joe states that, "The challenge with landscape photography is to move beyond documentation. In my view, undisturbed nature is the most sacred of all places. Like the range of human emotions, so too is the range of textures, colors and details in nature. I hope my images can deepen the viewer's appreciation for our vital connection to nature."
