Twist turns 3 years old...Nashville Scene

You're Not Helping and Twist's Birthday Bash
It's Your Birthday
Joe Nolan
Nashville Scene

Time flies when you are having fun, and Twist Gallery founders Caroline Carlisle and Beth Gilmore have been having a blast growing their presence in the Downtown Arcade and becoming one of the must-see spaces on the First Saturday Gallery Crawl. To celebrate their third birthday, Twist will feature two new shows in each of its Arcade spaces. 73 Arcade will feature paintings by Angela Burks whose latest paintings have introduced graphic elements into her realistic portraits. Twist's space at 58 Arcade will feature a mail art show called Love Letters to the Post Office that is dedicated to the Arcade's 106 year old post office which has recently been threatened with closing. Try to snag a copy of Laura Baisden's great birthday poster and get there early for cake!

Reception, also celebrating Twist's anniversary, 6-9 p.m., Aug. 1.
