Artist Marisa Ray:
Marisa Ray lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and son. She was taught art by her grandfather, Harry T. Rainey. Supporters of her work describe it as dreamlike, comforting and peaceful. Her special interest is in painting landscapes and houses.
DJ Just Greg:
Just Greg is a DJ who wants to share his music with you. Like an effeminate boyfriend who labors over a mix tape as a gift for his special someone. Only this time he will make it on the fly… on a sidewalk… for a large group of passers by… for three hours. Just Greg will assemble and cross-pollinate special songs created by paid professionals. Just Greg selects sounds from a multitude of genres including Dancehall, House, Grime, Dubstep (not to be confused with brostep), and Drum and Bass. He prefers to pepper them sparsely with US top 40, underground hip hop, funk, and many sub-genres of rock (yes even psychobilly). Listeners are encouraged to dress casually and comfortably as they enjoy his performance. Please stay as long as you’d like, he understands that 3 hours is a long time.

HOT & COLD – artist – Eliza Hemmings.
RETROPOLITAN – artist – Janet Garner of Blue Nest Studio. After 25 years as a hotel interior designer in Atlanta, Georgia, I was faced with total career burn-out. A few painting classes at the Atlanta College of Art, ended three years later, with a BFA in painting and print-making. Moving to Nashville in 2004, to be closer to family, set the stage for my second career in art.
My art is very much influenced by my “designing” past. Patterns, ornament and decorative motifs are the starting place for much of my work. Vignettes of jars and vessels, room interiors, and overlapping decorative motifs are all reflected in my paintings.
I find it most exciting to work with various mediums and forms of expression. I began doing small works on paper using pen and ink, collage, markers, stamps and whatever else was at hand. All these works are still very much informed by ornament and geometric forms.
SEE EYEWEAR – artist- Olivia Samples (firstname.lastname@example.org), Trained in jewelry and fine metalworking at The Evergreen State College and the Savannah College of Art and Design, Olivia’s practice discovers aspects self exploration in combination with psychology, dreams, feelings, and surreal themes as well object making. Samples often utilize found objects combined with metals including silver, brass, and copper.
We will be offering $40 off one pair and a total of $100 off two pair, during the walk.
A THOUSAND FACES –artist – Susan Mason is an Occupational Therapist by vocation, and an Artist by heart. The same nurturing and giving spirit that led to a career of helping others, has now led her to create a new series of wall hangings she calls, “Road Signs for Life’s Journey.” Meant to inspire, strengthen, and encourage, profound but simple messages are created from the combined elements of wood and forged nails. To the artist; wood representing the changeability of life and nails representing the inner strength needed to weather hardships and trials. Susan’s artwork always speaks to the heart, and this latest series is no exception. Susan’s previous works have shown in galleries and boutiques in Salado, TX, Santa Fe, NM, and Nashville, TN.
FIDO – artist – November 1, 2011-December 20, 2012 FIDO is proud to be exhibiting the work of Jim McGuire and Lindsay Shepherd. McGuire is a Legendary Nashville photographer, highly regarded for his portraits of famous musicians. He has been honing his craft for the past 30 years. Shepherd, a collage artist, brings a whimsical, dreamy approach to the medium of cut and paste. Her imagery hits the maximum capacity on the cuteness scale. The black and white photography finds an unlikely companion with the bold colors of construction paper.
ZEITGEIST – artist – San Francisco-based artist and illustrator Ward Schumaker. Ward is an award winning designer and illustrator whose fine art work is being featured in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Shanghai. Ward Schumakerassembles a selection of his Geography works on paper and handmade/handbound books for his second solo show at Zeitgeist in November. The work offers a platform for free association with thought and emotion.
Those familiar with Mr. Schumaker’s work will immediately recognize his light, deft touch with inks and skeins of delicate washes. Work on paper mounted to birch ply along with three handmade books express graceful eastern sensibilities and mix abstract passages with hand-cut stenciled phrases and geographic reference points.

PANGAEA – artist – Painter David C L Noel was born in 1981 in Witchita, Kansas. His family soon relocated to Nashville, TN where he was raised, and after time in California and other travels, he now resides.
Primarily self-taught, David cites comic books and iconography as his earliest influences. His recent works are inspired by the modernist and surrealist painters Rothko, Frances Bacon, and Dali, as well as more contemporary artists Banksy, Bertho, Wayne Douglas Barlow, and Donny Smutz. Currently he splits his time working on the “Stencil Series” and reviving one of his earliest projects, “The Black Works.”
David’s work has been seen in group shows at Fido, Ruby Green, Springwater, and the Basement. In August 2011 he debuted the “Alphabet Series” in his first solo show at Sunset Grill, and most recently he was the featured artist at the ODC Artists Showcase.
PAPER LANTERN – Indie Acoustic Folk music. Anna Gabrielle, Alex Red, & Daniel Van Dyk A serene blend of acoustic guitar, ukulele, upright bass, harmonious voices and memorable melodies. Alex, Anna and Daniel were destined to be together. Their fate is reflected clearly in the seamless blending of their melodies and the electricity of their artistic chemistry.
PROVENCE – artist- Kay Ramming – I developed a love of photography many years ago while attending the University of Wisconsin. While living in Seattle I was fortunate to attend the Photograph Center Northwest where I became interested in Lith Photography, a wet darkroom printing process using traditional silver B/W fiber paper with a Lith developer. This process produces a grainy image with dark shadows and delicate highlights. Taking photographs of interesting places and people is what I really enjoy. Since moving to Nashville I am continuing to develop my photography skills. My goal is to provide quality photographs and continue to learn and improve my art.
– Musicians – Derek Pell and the Gypsy Cowboys
We’ll be sampling our fall oatmeal brown sugar and cinnamon bread and sweet potato pecan bread as well as our fall desserts
A VILLAGE OF FLOWERS – artist – My name is Jamie Wright and I’m a native of Nashville, TN. I discovered my love for photography over 17 years ago while in college pursuing a career in cinematography. I’ve been gaining experience ever since then shooting everything from weddings, children, and advertising to fine art wall décor with custom hand made framing. I spent my career using film as my medium until recently where I finally embraced the digital age. I will always have a love for film and cinematography has a huge influence in my photography. Combining the vanishing art of film with the current age of digital, I use my experience to give my clients what they need and also fulfill my creative needs. Please visit jmwrightphoto.com to see what I love to do.
Awesome Food Samples – Youlanda Peña. After a successful career in business & banking I decided to return to my love of cooking and graduated from the Art Institute of Culinary Arts. My love of food has allowed me to share fun and healthy ways of eating with friends and family, which led me to becoming my own personal chef. I feel that more people would eat healthy if they knew how good it really was
