April Meeting Notes…

S.N.A.P. at Provence Cafe

Spring is sprung, the grass is riz…and so have the photographs in our “Night” exhibition at Provence. Again, I am blown away by the quality and variety of images in the show. Be sure to be there for the Reception next Thursday, April 20 to see the show and talk with the artists.

The juror for this exhibit is Heather Lose, a creative director and fine art photographer who helped co-found the Nashville Community Darkroom and, more recently, WXNA 101.5 FM. She will be discussing the photographs she selected for the exhibit at our next meeting at Dury’s, Tuesday, April 25 beginning at 6:30. See you there!


Our March meeting was a real treat…a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts to see the Irving Penn exhibit. Those who have seen it are complimentary of the quality and content of the show. If you haven’t seen it yet, this is an exhibit you shouldn’t miss. It remains until May 29.

Member News…

S.N.A.P. member Bill Hobbs has an on-going project photographing the construction of the 505 building…


“I have been photographing construction of the 505 residential tower for developer Tony Giarratana since the building was nothing more than a 70-foot-deep hole in the ground, for the purpose of creating a coffee-table book of art photography of the project that will be given to the initial residents. The 45-floor building will be the tallest residential building in Nashville and all of Tennessee. My photography is meant to capture both the beauty of the emerging building and the workers who are building it. The exhibit, arranged by The Arts Company, features 19 images from the forthcoming book and the artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Fifth Third Center through the end of the month.

Bill is interested in hosting a viewing event for S.N.A.P. members. His email says: “I’m not sure how to throw an event together quickly, and it wouldn’t be a big event, just a group coming to see them at the same time then go eat together.” So, if you are interested please contact Bill directly.


S.N.A.P. member Emerald Estock sold 2 (count ‘em, TWO) pieces from our Provence show “Inspired by Art”. They are titled “Woven Past” and “Repose”. Congratulations, Emerald!
