A Brand-New Juried Show

Lightfall is an 18x24 oil done from life by Shirley Fachilla.

I’m very happy to be included in a new national juried show being held in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. This is its inaugural exhibit. There will be about 100 juried pieces from artists across the country plus new work by the originators of the show, the Cumberland Society. It promises to be a beautiful show.
It will be up from October 3 to November 1 with an artist reception from 5 to 8 on Thursday evening, October 3. The place is Richland Gallery on the second level, 4009 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville. Everyone would love to see you at the reception. Or you might plan a day to come while it’s on display. (There’s a very good restaurant next to the gallery.)

Peggi Kroll Roberts is the judge of awards; here’s a link to most of the pieces in the show.

  4. How exciting, Shirley. I truly wish I didn't live so far away as it would be nice to see the show in person. Lightfall is beautiful. I love her outstretched leg and the backlighting!


Is it too early to send an invitation?
