Twist Art Gallery in the Nashville Scene

We Are Going to Spend the Night at Meemaw and Pop-Pop's at Twist
Sleepover With Stolle
Joe Nolan

Inspired by a friend's online post, local artist Nick Stolle decided that We Are Going to Spend the Night at Meemaw and Pop-Pop's was a fine name for his new show of work at Twist Gallery's space at Arcade 58. The idea of Stolle spending the night anywhere that may afford him a sound night's sleep is probably a good idea for a young artist who has spent the last several months throwing his hat into the ring for the Nashville's Hardest Working Artist Award. Hot on the heels of a Watkins senior show that featured an exclamation point of a short play that he wrote, directed and acted in, Stolle has regularly cranked out new work that is sarcastic enough to sucker the hipsters, but sincere enough to move those with eyes to see.
