The Frist Center opened in Nashville, Tenn, April 2001, and since that time has hosted a spectacular array of art from the region, the country, and around the world. The vision of the Frist Center is to inspire people through art to look at their world in new ways.
On view in the Upper-Level Gallery July 12–October 13, 2013, is Jack Spencer: Beyond the Surface
A Nashville resident whose work has been exhibited and collected internationally, Jack Spencer alters the surfaces of his photographs with techniques suggestive of painting—rich tones and colors, softly-focused or veiled forms, slight imperfections and painterly textures. Jack Spencer: Beyond the Surface is composed of approximately 70 photographs that exemplify the relationship between these compelling surfaces and Spencer’s interest in myth, mystery and the ephemeral nature of existence.
This exhibition is organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and curated by Frist Center Chief Curator Mark Scala.
