Southern Artist Showcase Gallery

The Southern Artist Showcase Gallery features some of the best-known painters, photographers, sculptors and other fine artists to come out of the south. Rotating frequently to expose visitors to the widest variety of art possible, shows feature works produced in a variety of mediums.

Currently on display in this gallery are works of Red Grooms on loan from the Tennessee State Museum and the West Tennessee Regional Art Center.

Red Grooms was born in Nashville in 1937 and now lives in New York City and still producing art. He emerged in the 1960s to become one of the most important figures in the world of contemporary American art. He has captivated audiences with a creative genius that has expressed itself through a wide variety of media, including sculpture, film, drawing, and painting. With an irrepressible sense of humor, Grooms pokes fun at cultural icons in a good-natured way.

The works of Red Grooms will be on display through April 30, 2020. 

Coming May 14 – Sept. 28, 2020 to this gallery is “The Southern Artist Showcase: Works by Southern Self-taught Artists.”
