The book can be ordered through a monthly membership subscription with Locate Arts, a nonprofit promoting contemporary visual art in Tennessee.
LOCATE Arts presents: mysterious flight of the peacock including the work of Mika Agari, Eleanor Aldrich, Devin Balara, Coriana Close, Jennifer Danos, Elysia Mann, Christopher Miner, Corkey Sinks, and Tad Lauritzen Wright. The impetus for Calway-Fagen’s selection process was the synchronicity of the artists work with a poem by contributing artist, Elysia Mann entitled anticipation.
Mike Calway-Fagen is an artist, writer, and curator. He received his BFA from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and an MFA from the University of California in San Diego. In the past year Mike opened solo exhibitions at Ditch Projects in Oregon, Lipscomb University in Tennessee, and a two-person project at the Soo Visual Arts Center in Minneapolis. His recent curatorial projects include, Sounds Like, State Park and First Person in Indianapolis, IN, San Diego, CA and Nashville, TN respectively.
The show opens 6 pm, May 7 at Coop Gallery (507 Hagan Street) in Nashville.
I also had the opportunity to interview Nashville-based Paul Collins about his work for the LOCATE Arts website. LOCATE Arts focuses on and promotes contemporary artists working in each region of Tennessee.
