MBA Fall Art Show

Join me for the opening reception of the 2015 Montgomery Bell Academy Art Show presented by the MBA Mothers Club on Sunday, September 13th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Hors d'Oeurves and Wine included. So excited to be one of the featured artists for this years show. 

MONTGOMERY BELL ACADEMY

Nashville, TN 37205

Featured Artist: Hector Frank Heredia

Born in Havana in 1961, Hector Frank first trained as an electoral engineer. After years of working for the Cuban government, he quit his job to pursue art. Through his works, Frank expresses his inner creativity and depicts the influences, colors, textures, sounds, and landscapes of Cuban life. 

Now widely acclaimed, he has exhibited throughout Cuba and internationally in France, Mexico, Belgium, Malaysia and the United States. Bill and Tracy Frist encountered Frank on their travels to Cuba. This fall, Frank will be the Artist in Residence in Sinking Creek, Virginia, as part of SCORE's Mountain Artist in Residence initiative. White there, he will draw upon the natural environment and Appalachian setting to create a series of pieces in paint and in a material medium. 

- From "Cuban Summer Features"

I became enamored with Heredia's work while visiting: "Cuban Summer: A Night of Art and Culture" presented by Jackson Life Insurance and Pierce & Co. The art studio was a transformed open house, an incredible way to display the home for sale as well as it's interiors and the designers. One of his pieces now resides in my residence. 

Featured Artist: Brent Wadden

He might still call his work "paintings." But Brent Wadden's newest collection aren't the oils he's produced in the past. Instead he embellishes raw canvases with hand-woven yarns, wool, cotton, and acrylic sourced from Craigslist, eBay, and thrift stores.

Brent Wadden was chosen as our featured artist for his expertise of turning previously used materials into incredible works of art, featuring incredible textures and lines with a simplistic eye. 
Wadden's artwork adds natural elements to a modern space, tying in the perfect marriage of tradition and modern together. Take a look at some of our favorite pieces below.
