Nashville Scene..critic's pick Twist Art Gallery

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick

The Last Roll and Elizabeth Alley
Two to Twist
Joe Nolan

Having just celebrated its third birthday, Twist Gallery isn’t willing to rest on its colorful laurels. Delivering another one-two-punch, the gallery brings a pair of new shows to the Arcade this month, both of which find their connections through photography. The Last Roll is a diverse group show of local photographers shooting rolls of Kodachrome 64 film, offering their own unique insights on the end of the discontinued medium. The show features work by Elizabeth Streight, Scott Simontacchi, Jonathan Rodgers and Anthony Doling. While this darkroom dirge plays out in Twist’s Arcade 58 space, the gallery’s Arcade 73 space will play host to work by Elizabeth Alley, whose narrative paintings are informed by a photographer’s sense of composition and perspective.

Opening reception 6-9 p.m., Sept. 5, as part of First Saturday.
