Moesse Art Show at The MaD PLaTTeR April 17-May 31 Former military mom Maura Satchell, a.k.a. Moesse sent sons off to war in Iraq five times from 2003-2008. In the waning days of their service, she discovered painting was a great way to alleviate the stress. On April 17, The MaD PLaTTeR Restaurant in the Historic Germantown Neighborhood will begin exhibiting her paintings, through May 31. “Maura’s Art Work is lovely and the restaurant walls will be uplifted by it,” said Marcia Jervis, co-owner of the storied restaurant. A landmark in the fast-growing Germantown neighborhood, The MaD PLaTTeR is known for launching the careers of a few budding artists over the eatery’s 20-year history. The show will feature a wide range of paintings in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media and draws from Maura’s extensive experience behind the lens as a professional photographer and her enthusiastic experimentation on canvas. The result is a mix of whimsy, drama, and unabashed use of color. “I have experimented with various styles from the start,” said Satchell. “And now, under the training of the greatly talented Hazel King, I have the freedom to explore, unfettered by convention. She and the Centennial Arts Center, where I study and paint along seasoned professionals and newcomers alike, have been such a wonderful blessing to me and have helped me immeasurably in developing my craft.” Check out the Moesse Art Show which runs through May 31 at The MaD PLaTTeR Restaurant, 1239 Sixth Avenue North, Nashville, Tel: (615) 242-2563, http://TheMadPlatterRestaurant.com.
