Works by Gregg Schlanger, Monica Quattrochio & Kelly Bonadies at Twist
Three Is a Magic Number
Joe Nolan
Nashville Scene

Twist Gallery welcomes three unique artists working in diverse media to their twin spaces in the Downtown Arcade. Gregg Schlanger and Monica Quattrochio will fill Twist's Arcade 73 space with food for the mind and spirit alike. Schlanger's conceptual installation work usually includes community involvement or a public component. Expect to see a project that might look at home across the Arcade in the Blend Studio space. Quattrochio's meditative photographs of water present the viewer with sea-green abstracts that are as much studies of motion and change as they are reminders of a precious resource. Kelly Bonadies will be displaying her first solo show at Arcade 58. Bonadies seems to have an ambivalent relationship to scale: she can paint very small and (recently) very large. We're not sure what she has in store for tonight, but she is certainly one of the most promising young painters in Nashville and this stop should be a top priority for any art-crawler in the know.

Opening reception 6-9 p.m., Nov. 7.
