Greetings, SNAP members!
Remember, our March meeting will be this Friday, March 11th.
We will be taking a field trip to the Frist Center for the Visual Arts for a new photography exhibit entitled “The Power of Pictures: Early Soviet Photography and Film”. Susan Striepe, a new SNAP member, is a docent at the Frist and will lead a personalized tour for us. First, we will attend the curator’s presentation, “Broken Promises: Soviet Photography in the Age of Stalin” (see below) and after the tour, we plan to meet and discuss the exhibit.
We’re excited to open the call for entries to next SNAP Photography Show to be held at Provence Bakery in Hillsboro Village in April. This show will have the theme: “patterns“. Interpret this however your creative mind sees it – no restrictions on color, subject, processing or viewpoint. The patterns may be natural or man-made, evoking rhythm and maybe a sense of harmony (or disharmony, if the pattern is broken).
This is open to SNAP members only — easy to become a Snap Member just attend a meeting — and we encourage everyone to participate!
The show will be hung in early April, with an Artists Reception soon thereafter. Our juror is Noah Saterstrom, You can read more on his work at http://www.noahsaterstrom.com.

It was a dark and stormy night…and many more people than expected braved the elements to see John Guider’s photographs and to hear his discussion of the last leg of his “Great Loop” voyage. Thanks, John…great presentation (with apologies for the projector SNAFU).
Still another opportunity to see some good photography in Nashville. An exhibit by Nashville native Jessica Ingram, “Road through Midnight: A Civil Rights Memorial”, is at the TN State Museum. This Saturday, Feb. 27th, from 1-4, Ingram will discuss her work and moderate a distinguished panel of artists and historians who will speak about this very important time in American history. For more information, click here.
For our first member spotlight we chose Kay Ramming who recently finished a lengthy term as our President and beloved leader.
I lived all my life in Los Angeles and Southern California until moving to a very small town in Wisconsin. Shortly after arriving in Baraboo I realized even though my husband ran one of the biggest manufacturing plants in town, no one was really interested in me!. This was something I was not used to, so I took myself off to the University of Wisconsin to see what I could find. After trying many different art classes I found photography. Wow! It seemed like magic when the print would appear in the tray in the darkroom, and I still love seeing that today!
The Arts Company announced an opportunity for you to see a new exhibit by Fred Dusel and meet the artist on Friday, March 4th, 5:30-7:30pm, at the Arts Company. The special event will be hosted by hosted by Michael Burcham, Paul Polycarpou, & Anne Brown. Click to RSVP.

Exhibition Runs January 9 – January 30, 2016
Reception: Saturday, January 9, 2016, 6-9pm, in conjunction with the East Side Art Stumble
What does art about Nashville look like if it doesn’t look like the downtown skyline? We’re set to find out. Gallery Luperca invited artists who currently live in, have lived in, or have been influenced by time spent in Nashville to create work about this place that we love in celebration all the aspects of life in Nashville WITHOUT referencing the skyline.
The resulting exhibition brings together work from artists working in mediums that range from folk art to photography to digital film. Artists include Black & Jones, David Morel(SNAP member), John Warren, Paul Collins, Lisa Haddad, Donna M. Kilkelly, Randy Toy, and Gary Johnson. More artists TBA.
An email went out today from Seedspace announcing calls for submissions for 2016. They have 3 different opportunities. Check out the information below and their website: Seedspace
