It's Time...opening April 2

Who controls art?

Who controls art? a video, paintings and installation pose that question, along with some possible answers, among them government and capitalism. (Did you know light-colored paintings sell better than dark-colored ones?) In addition, this pugilistic piece of streaming provocation beseeches us to check out a new exhibit at Blend Studio, featuring works by Andee Rudloff, Lindsay Bailey and Allie Sultan, and vote for our choice during this months' Art Crawl. That would mean we control art, then? Go deeper this Saturday.

Floats Like a Butterfly Stings Like a Bee: Who Controls Art? in the Nashville Scene

Blend Studio co-founder Ben Vitualla has taken on more of his gallery's programming duties, and now he finds himself with a fight on his hands. This month's collaboration between local artists Andee Rudloff and Lindsey Bailey and filmmaker Allie Sultan is a return to form for Blend, and these ladies are ready to rumble. Composed of a number of multimedia pieces and a video installation, Floats Like a Butterfly Stings Like a Bee: Who controls Art? fits in nicely with Blend's community-conscious ethos, engaging viewers in a dialogue about creative control. Saturday's audience can purchase specially printed wooden nickels to cast their vote. The nickels can be kept as souvenirs or donated to a number of creative causes.
