The world needs more substance.
A fundraiser to support the emerging artists at Watkins College of Art
On Saturday, March 30, 2019, Watkins presented the third edition of Glimpse, the newest must-attend event on Nashville’s social calendar, which introduces art lovers and the art-curious to up-and-coming talents whose work they would be wise to know about and collect now.
Glimpse artists are chosen prior to the event and their identities and curated works are unveiled and for sale during the one-night-only affair. Past Glimpse artists have shown nationally and regionally, as well as received awards within the disciplinary fields Watkins represents (film, fine art, graphic design, illustration, interior design, and photography). The 2019 Glimpse artists were: Sarah Faith Taylor, Lauren Hood, Mary Gwyn Bowen, Natalie Briscoe, Lauren Rosenblum, Brady Haston, Jodi Hays, Maria Mancini, Karen Matkosky, Alison Miyauchi, Miranda Singleton, Leslie Valenzuela, Dan Brawner, and Huy Nguyen.
The 2019 edition of Glimpse adopted the theme of Andy Warhol, focusing on his Factory aesthetic and pop exuberance. In addition to sophisticated small plates, there were creative cocktails, interactive installations, funky art games, and a silent auction, not to mention the sale of work by the selected Glimpse artists.
The college thanks its generous sponsors, as well as its host committee: Glimpse Chairs Brooke Hawkins and Kristin Laine, as well as Collins Smith and Matt Reasor, Alison Burlage, Memree and Rich Roberts, Laura and Lance Carney, Pat and Marc Hollander, Ann Ripley, Lisa Toporek, Brooke and Will Hawkins, and Kristin and Alex Laine.
