From also known as David Maddox's really cool art blog

Update: Beth's show has been pushed out to Sunday May 10. One of the more unusual things this month will be Beth Gilmore’s installation at the Belmont Mansion. Beth works there (and is sometimes called on to channel Adelicia Acklen) and has used images from Ward-Belmont College in her work. She’s getting a chance to bring things together in a one afternoon/night show in an unused room at the Mansion on May 10.

May 10
Belmont Mansion, Beth Gilmore. As I said in the intro, Beth is getting to install her art in an unrestored room of the mansion, which is so appropriate since that’s where a lot of the images come from. Her whole approach is based on appropriating and absorbing images, and then looking for a home that allows a vivid sense of historical presence to express itself. This show will let a couple of ways of telling history reside together. And I think it’s been a while since Beth has shown her work on its own, and I’ve probably never seen it with this opportunity to occupy a space. The show will run from 5-9 on the 10th.
