Curator's statement:

Andee Rudloff's modern depictions of mountains, hills, pastures and clouds are expressively characterized by her use of color and composition.

Her passion for painting, and the majestic flow of nature, are evident in the bold and unconstrained choice of bright colors. Rudloff's paintings carry the spirit of the place where she paints, also reminding us of a strong sense of vitality; this is especially true of her pictures depicting clouds bursting, prismatic skies and channels of water.

The artist explains, "When creating the works for this exhibition, I was influenced by the feeling of flight and the perplexity of life. As I fly in an aircraft, I am constantly in search of the horizon line. As I go through life, I am also searching for the "horizon line," as I deal with things that are out of my control. In this series of works, I investigate my emotions, feelings and happenings within each landscape while allowing the unpredictability of life to play a role."

In recent years, Rudloff has visited places all over the US and far western China. She has had solo and group exhibitions and participated in several cultural and academic exchanges. Her work can be found in corporate collections, private collections as well as exhibitions throughout the US, Great Britain and Japan.

She also serves as the Curator of the well-known Arts at the Airport program at Nashville International Airport. Rudloff decisively leads the program while ushering through exciting changes coming with the new multi-million dollar terminal renovation.

Exhibition runs through April 13th, 2007.

The Quiet World-photography by Stacey Irvin

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: Saturday, February 3, from 6-8 p.m. FREE and open to the public.

The Parthenon's East Gallery will exhibit the work of Nashville photographer Stacey Irvin from February 3-April 14, 2007. In this exhibit, Irvin explores the people and landscapes of two seemingly different places: Beaverhead County, Montana, and the Xinjiang Province in Northwestern China. Rather than emphasizing cultural differences, Irvin's photographs underscore the similarities that make us all human. Susan Shockley, Curator, notes that "in the face of devastating worldwide news about our earth's inhabitants, Irvin captures a contentment about her subjects, even as they face difficult living conditions. That is her strength. She finds something deeper in her photographs than what we see on the nightly news."

Irvin is an award-winning photographer and graphic designer living in Nashville, Tennessee. She has traveled worldwide in pursuit of new experiences, recording them with her camera. In 1999, after graduating with a B.A. in Philosophy from Vanderbilt University, she received the prestigious Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet Award from Vanderbilt's Fine Arts Department. With funds from the Hamblet award, Irvin embarked on a four-month photographic journey through parts of Asia, and returned to Northwestern China five years later. In 2003 she spent a month at the family-owned and -run cattle ranch in Southwestern Montana.


I wanted to express my respect and admiration to the The Basement Gallery in Knowville, TN, for Alterscape. I also respect the choices of Curator T. Michael Martin. The exhibition was intensely exciting and full of excellent images. If there is not a catalog of this show, there should be. (Maybe I will try to work to help put something together.)
I would also love to see this exhibition travel to other the gallery!

Heck...a review may follow.
