QUAKE, an exhibition featuring works by David Anderson, Lisa Bachman Jones, and Moses Williams
WAG (Watkins Art Gallery) is pleased to present QUAKE, an exhibition featuring works by David Anderson, Lisa Bachman Jones, and Moses Williams. All of these artists are students, alumni, or faculty at Watkins College of Art, and their work represents a response to the current crisis at the college during its proposed merger with Belmont University. They portray this upheaval as a kind of “quaking.” Rather than unsettling the bonds of community, however, this quake solidifies them, and it reinforces the artists’ commitment to the power of art and collaborative resistance. Their work serves as a reminder to the larger community of the essential role that Watkins plays, and has played for many years, in expanding and enriching the arts in Nashville...
Watkins: The Other Side of The Story
This exhibition will feature portraits of Watkins students, faculty, staff, and alumni along with their stories about life at the school. It will pay tribute to Watkins and its contributions to the cultural life of Nashville as well as our hope that the legacy of Watkins will not come to an end. Watkins students will host conversations about the school and the importance of art in Nashville and beyond. This show was organized by students in the Public Art class at Watkins under the direction of Professor Moses Williams.
