The owners of Finer Things Gallery, Kim Brooks and Rusty Wolfe, lost almost everything in the historic Nashville flood. Their home, studio, workshop, and outside sculpture garden were all destroyed. Several member galleries of the Nashville Association of Art Dealers (NAAD) were quick to help out and get involved by creating fundraising events during Thursday Art After Hours in the months of June and July, donating a portion of all sales to Finer Things Gallery.
Kicking off the series in June were Cumberland Gallery, The Arts Company, and Gallery One. Starting Thursday, July 1, LeQuire Gallery will host Finer Things artwork during Art After Hours. The Local Color/Midtown Gallery event occurs July 8, and Zeitgeist Gallery will conclude the series Friday, July 9. All events are open to the public free of charge and run from 5–8 p.m.
Nashville Arts Magazine is honored to take part in helping Finer Things Gallery rebuild. Since Finer Things no longer has gallery space, we are selling these items on their behalf. The price listed is the reserve, so call us with your best offer, get a great art bargain, and help get Finer Things Gallery back on its feet.
We will auction these selected works to the highest bidder, and every penny will go to help Finer Things recover from the 2010 flood.
To place your bid on any item, please call 615-383-0278. Bidding is open now through Friday, July 30, 1 p.m. Happy bidding!
