I want to thank everyone involved with the South Light Salon juried exhibition at The Arts Company last Saturday. It was a very productive and rewarding experience, and the crowd that night at the First Saturday Art Crawl was even greater than we had hoped for, considering the rainy weather. I am very encouraged and excited by all the well attended arts events here in Nashville! I am a native Nashvillian but have been away since college. Coming back after all these years to find a thriving and growing arts community here is a pleasant surprise, and it’s organizations such as The Arts Company, hosting these innovative events, which make it an essential part of this dynamic community. And what a great way to be introduced to so many fellow photographers!
