On Thursday, March 5 at 6:30, Nashville-based writer Joe Nolan will talk with abstract painter Dan Holland at Red Arrow Gallery in East Nashville. Joe is a terrific person and a fine writer who reports on everything from the arts to the oddities. I always welcome his fresh perspective and attention to wonder, plus he runs a great blog that has provided me with many a happy distraction. Dan Holland is an abstract painter, and Sara Estes who has (thankfully) been writing for the Tennessean says, “Holland’s work is big, bold and expressive. Influenced by Julian Schnabel and Cy Twombly, his paintings simultaneously nod back to the history of painting while hurtling forward in search of a new, brazen aesthetic for contemporary painting.”
Red Arrow Gallery is at 1311 McGavock Pike. If you’re like me and like talks, you’re in luck. This is the first in a new series at the gallery. They will serve light refreshments and have a donation bar.
