1. How did you get started in photography?
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!
An interesting exhibit at The Arts Company is set to open in March, Nashville Streets Then and Now, featuring images from Ed Clark(1946) and Michael Ray Nott(2016). An interview with Nott has been posted on The Arts Company’s website, check it out.

February Meeting: Dury’s, Tuesday February 23rd, 6:30 pm. We are honored to have as our (return) speaker, John Guider. John is a world class photographer and a man I would call an adventurer. Several years ago, John set himself the goal of sailing “The Great Loop”, beginning and ending at his back door on the Harpeth River. And, just to make things interesting, he decided to build his own sailboat for the 5500 mile voyage. John will present his photographs and center his discussion on the final leg of his journey. http://johnguider.com/Guider_TheGreatLoop.pdf
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.
