I Can D.I.G. It
This Saturday, February 2, is the First Saturday Art Crawl in downtown Nashville, and I am part of one show that is opening. I have a piece in the group show - D.I.G. Through Art- hosted by Downtown Presbyterian Church. On First Saturday, at 6:00, Downtown Presbyterian also holds an "Art - Luck" dinner that is open to any art- loving, gallery- hopping, hungry Nashvillian. So, at 6:00 bring your covered dish to take part in the pot- luck dinner AND preview the D.I.G. Through Art Event !
I'm copying an article (see below) that I found on Beth Gilmore' s blog to give you a better idea what the event is all about. Thanks Beth!
