NASHVILLE, Tenn. – David Lusk Gallery Nashville kicks off the summer with “Vestige,” a guest-curated photography exhibition displayed May 30-June 30.
Guest curators Sam Easley and Jason Owen have selected works showcasing Caroline Alison, Coriana Close, Kevin Cooley, John Duckworth, William Eggleston, Catherine Erb, Huger Foote, Kristi Hargrove, Shannon Randol, Kathleen Robbins, Jack Spencer, Jeane Umbreit and William Wegman.
The exhibition opening will be celebrated 5-8 p.m. June 2.
“Vestige” showcases photographs that successfully portray evidence of human impact while leaving out specific individuals. Overturned earth at a gravesite, a grass fire, four red cushions and a collection of worn newspapers is a reminder of people who passed through these spaces, leaving traces or altering them so much that the spaces disappeared.
Maintaining his studio practice between Los Angeles, California and Brooklyn, New York, artist Kevin Cooley focuses on sunrises, sunsets, moonrises and moonsets in his “A Thousand Miles An Hour” series.
Based in Nashville, Sam Easley is the president and founder of Crown Merchandise, a full-service merchandising company representing the brightest music brands on tour, at retail, through strategic licensing partnerships and online. Jason Owen is known for managing musicians such as Little Big Town, Faith Hill and Kacey Musgraves, in addition to Blackberry Farm and the estate of Johnny Cash as the President of Soundbox Entertainment. Owen’s most recent success has come from managing female artists in country music: Kacey Musgraves sold out Royal Albert Hall in London, Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” is a triple Grammy nominee and rising country star Kelsea Ballerini recently signed with Sandbox Entertainment.
David Lusk Gallery is located at 516 Hagan Street in Nashville’s Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
