Excited as always Dear Listener to explore the aesthetic of whatever new town I'm in I sped over to the Plowhaus Gallery on East 17th to see what art was cooking and to speak to the locals about the scene here.
As per usual I didn't check the opening hours of the venue, so like my 'I Dream of Weenie' and 'Craft Fair' experiences I found myself outside of a locked building, alone. I've really got to do better planning.
Turns out the Gallery is only open on the weekends. But, they do have a sign on the door with names and numbers of people to call and open the place up if you really want to see the art inside; what a great idea! Kinda like doctors on call. Art doctors on call!
Anyhew, I didn't want to bother anyone so I didn't ring; just wandered around a bit.
The shot above is the gallery's back door; off an alley way on the side of the building. I, like you I suspect, was intrigued by that drainage pipe sticking out of the chain-link fence.
I especially like that 'goo'/sealant around the hinge. Good stuff.
Well, not many adventures to be had that day at the gallery am afraid - I'll do my best to attend the fund-raiser; I don't know these Plowhaus folks but the idea of an Artists' Collective sounds interesting and God knows the world needs art now more than ever. If you're in Nashville this Saturday why not go out and show your support?
I leave you with the fellow below - spied on the Plowhaus' alley wall. Have a good day everyone!
