Christ the King School • October 3 to 4

by Bassam Nessim

The Belmont Community Art Show and Sale will open with a reception on Friday, October 3, at 5 p.m. at Christ the King School, with Lisa McReynolds as this year’s featured artist.

“I look forward to presenting my new works reflecting the Southern lifestyle,” says McReynolds, whose work is a celebration of Nashville skylines, rustic barns, and her Southern roots found through palette knives, paint, and multiple layerings of colors and textures.

This year’s show features 32 artists, 3 jewelers, and 3 potters, including Ron York, Bradley Tyler Wilson, Lee Hamblen, Ginger Oglesby, Lauren Dunn, and Jade Reynolds. The artists will donate to Christ the King School thirty percent of their sales, which will go towards arts and music scholarships as well as overall operating expense.

The show will continue until 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 4. Admission is free, and the event is open to everyone. The show coincides with the Historic Belmont-Hillsboro Home Tour, which takes place on Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
