My Tennessee Home: the Paintings of Camille Engel

Art

Internationally awarded Nashville visual artist Camille Engel will celebrate her home state of Tennessee with an exhibition of original contemporary realism paintings at the Parthenon from September 9-December 31, 2017. Each painting in "Her Tennessee Home" exhibition invites the viewer to momentarily step into her world and share in her joy of these subjects. Engel has spent the past two and a half years researching, referencing and creating these contemporary realism, trompe l'oeil, and encaustic paintings that present unique and surprising depictions of state symbols such as the state beverage, cultivated and wild flowers, fruit, wild animal, insects, butterfly, gem, reptile, fish and more.

There will be a public opening on Friday, September 15 from 6:00-8:00 pm.
