BOTH SIDES NOW: PLEIN AIR PAINTING BY KYMBERLEE STANLEY AND ELLEN PARKER BIBB

The Parthenon and Centennial Park Conservancy are proud to present Both Sides Now: Plein Air Paintings by Kymberlee Stanley and Ellen Parker Bibb in the West Gallery of the Parthenon from Saturday, October 12, 2019 through Sunday, January 26, 2020 with a free gallery opening event on Thursday, October 17th from 6 to 8 PM.

Both Sides Now features the art of Kymberlee Stanley and Ellen Parker Bibb, and explores the immediate creative process that is central to their work. Literally translated as “open air,” the French term “plein air” refers to a style of outdoor painting with roots in the Impressionist movement of the nineteenth century. As experienced artists and members of Nashville’s Chestnut Group alliance, Stanley and Parker Bibb engage in the plein air style, making spontaneous, paint-what-you-see art, all done in the great outdoors.

Parthenon admission is free for Centennial Park Conservancy Members.

Interested in attending the free gallery opening? RSVP below.

Thursday, October 17th from 6 to 8 PM at the Parthenon. Light hors d'oeuvre, beer, and wine will be served.
