University School of Nashville will host Artclectic, an annual art show and sale to raise money for the Artclectic Endowment Fund for Innovative Teaching. Artclectic has grown into a nationally acclaimed art show where over 50 artists come together to show off a diverse assortment of work. Earlier this year, the program announced Celia Walker, art historian and Director of Special Projects at Vanderbilt University Libraries, as the guest juror for the 2012 event. Walker individually selected artists that specialize in a wide range of media.
This show expresses the value and importance of art education to the USN students and the Nashville community. Artclectic attracts thousands of visitors, and there will be opportunities to meet with artists, buy art, sit in on art demonstrations, and create art in the Art Factory. Some of this year’s artists include ceramic artist Melodie Grace, mixed-media artists Jennifer Knowles-McQuistion and Lesley Patterson-Marx, painters Brian Nash and Tim Hooper, photographer Libba Gillum Miller, and printer
