Mike Calway-Fagen’s Story Breakers at Lipscomb

What I love about Nashville is this: the more you look, the more there is to see.

I reviewed Saturday’s art crawl in Country Life yesterday, standouts being Watkins senior Marlos E’van, COOP Gallery member Robert Scobey, and James S. Weinburg’s installation “Just Add Water” at Crystalwood Studio. Check out Country Life for the full report.

Wednesday┬ánight, Mike Calway-Fagen presents “Story Breakers” at Lipscomb in the John C. Hutcheson Gallery at 6 pm. He’ll give a talk followed by the opening reception for an exhibition that asks us to “Suspend disbelief. Postpone belief. Delay the gratification of each.” Calway-Fagen is versatile: I remember when he borrowed 52 mirrors from people in the Southeast and positioned them beneath the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo, lighting up the bridge’s underside.

“Story Breakers” is an installation of objects, sound, collage, and photographs. Check out some images of his past work.

The gallery is in the James C. Hughes Center, best accessible from the entrance on Belmont Blvd. Looks like you can enter across from Glen Echo Rd.
