Ground Floor Gallery is pleased to present Surroundings and the Self, an exhibition curated by Naomi Bartlett featuring the work of Ground Floor Studios artists. The work focuses on the position the artist holds as the bridge between the inner self and the surroundings in which we each find ourselves. This examination allows a poignant glimpse into each artist’s perception of both their private and more forthcoming selves. Drawn from a group of artists all living and working in Nashville, the works in Surroundings and the Self display what emerges as the result of this synthesis of the interior and exterior worlds.
Ground Floor Gallery is committed to providing contemporary exhibitions with depth and relevance in multiple disciplines for a diverse audience with the intent to connect artists with other art professionals, community builders and potential buyers. We present artists with the opportunity to exhibit their work in an alternative gallery and collective artist community, which allows artists to take risks that are not generally supported by commercial galleries.
