Juror Sharon Lee Hart, artist and lecturer of photography at the University of Kentucky, enjoyed the opportunity to view and choose from the photographers’ diverse submissions for this exhibit.

In addition to the talent featured on the gallery walls, Studio East Nashville is thrilled to welcome the musical artistry of award-winning indie folk Americana singer songwriter Louise Mosrie. Mosrie will perform during the artists’ reception on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The ƒ-Stops Here will be the final exhibition at Studio East Nashville, as the space will be closing to make way for renowned chef Hal Holden-Bache and business partner Cara Graham’s new eatery, Lockeland Table, a community kitchen and bar.
