Adam Henry and Emily Mae Smith present Neon Sigh: a new collaborative exhibition between the New York based artists on view for the first time in Nashville. Working through diverse media such as painting, sculpture, drawing, and collage, the artists manipulate found objects and imagery to reorder the perception of expectation and desire.

Smith is currently Lecturer in the Art Department at Vanderbilt University. She is a graduate of Columbia University’s Visual Arts MFA program and has exhibited nationally and abroad, most recently at Portugal Arte- the Biennial international exhibition held in Lisbon. Henry holds a MFA from the Yale School of Art and is Visiting Artist-in-Residence at both Vanderbilt University and Watkins College of Art and Design. His work was recently shown in New York’s Blackston Gallery and was also featured in Portugal Arte in Lisbon. Both artists have been prominently featured in publications such as the New York Times and The Village Voice.

The show runs from April 2- 23 at the combined spaces of COOP and Twist Etc Galleries, presented as Twistcooparcadia for the duration of the exhibition in Downtown Nashville’s Historic Arcade Building. # 75 & 77.
