An Imaginary Life
November 1 through December 3 • Viridian (Downtown Lofts in the Mezzanine area)
Tennessee State student Ashley Mintz is taking a short break from songwriting to present her new exhibition An Imaginary Life. The show includes paintings and drawings which correlate with one another to create a timeline from childhood to womanhood. Small passages next to each work give the exhibit the feel of a short story.
Ashley says that the show is somewhat autobiographical, because the same girl keeps showing up. “I don’t know what I am going to paint or draw before I begin, but by the time I get done, I realize the subject is something I’ve been going through.”
An Imaginary Life opens with a reception during the November Art Crawl, on November 1 from 6 until 9 p.m., and will remain on view through the month of December. For more information, please visit www.ashleymintz.weebly.com.
