'My Tennessee Home' Art Exhibition To Occur At Parthenon From Sept. 9-Dec. 31
Event date: 9/9/2017 to 12/31/2017
Internationally awarded Nashville visual artist Camille Engel will celebrate her home state of Tennessee with an exhibition of original contemporary realism paintings at the Parthenon Museum of Nashville from Sept. 9-Dec. 31, 2017. "My Tennessee Home: the Paintings of Camille Engel" will kick off with a reception from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 15 (Friday) in the American art galleries section of the historic Parthenon Museum, 2500 West End Ave. in Nashville. Admission is free and open to the public. Engel has spent the past two and a half years researching, referencing and creating these contemporary realism, trompe l'oeil, and encaustic paintings that present unique and surprising depictions of state symbols such as the state beverage, cultivated and wild flowers, fruit, wild animal, insects, butterfly, gem, reptile, fish and more. The exhibition will also spotlight original artworks by the 12 winners of the "My Tennessee Home Student Art Competition." "I am thrilled to celebrate my beloved state in the 'My Tennessee Home' exhibition," said Engel, who has won dozens of awards from organizations such as Southwest Art Magazine, International Artist Magazine, and the International Guild of Realism. Each painting in the "My Tennessee Home" exhibition invites the viewer to momentarily step into her world and share in her joy of these subjects.
