Art After Hours at Terrazzo. 12 galleries in the penthouse. September 16-17

From NashvilleArts Magazine. By Demetria Kalodimos

Whoever named the Terrazzo tower in the Gulch made a good call. Terrazzo is a lovely Italian word for an art form that creates a beautiful finished product from equally beautiful yet disparate bits. And the word will take on apropos symbolism over a weekend in September (16-17). They’re calling it Art After Hours. The Nashville Association of Art Dealers will show off more than one hundred works from a dozen galleries at the top of the fourteen-story Terrazzo in its penthouse residences.

This top-floor exhibit was the brainchild of one of Nashville’s top-shelf gallery owners, Janice Zeitlin. “When Terrazzo first opened, Zeitgeist [Gallery] went into the open units and used them as gallery spaces, and you got the idea, oh, this is what this piece could be like in my home.”

Zeitlin says, “Anyone who loves art and collects art will have a great opportunity to see a large selection in a beautiful setting.”And let’s boast just a bit about that setting. Terrazzo will forever have bragging rights as the first LEED-certified highrise building in Nashville. Up top, there are seven two-story residences with ceilings up to twenty-eight feet high, fireplaces, multiple terraces, and the ultimate skyline view through top-to-bottom glass walls. Architecturally speaking, it’s an elegant anchor piece to the rejuvenated Gulch. An artistic statement to be sure.

Galleries skimming the cream of their collections for the event include Bennett Galleries, Cumberland Gallery, LeQuire, Local Color, Midtown, the Arts Company, Two Moon, Gallery Simin, Richland Fine Art, Richter Gallery of Photography, and Gallery One Contemporary Fine Art.

The event is free and open to the public, and all art will be for sale.  > Read more…
