Nashville Flood Relief Art Show Next Weekend

Billups Art hosts the Nashville Flood Relief Art Show

The local art community is coming together this weekend to raise funds for the Nashville Red Cross and Hands On Nashville.

East Nashville art gallery Billups Art will play host to the Nashville Flood Relief Art Show next Saturday, May 15th, 2010. The opening will begin that night at 6pm and run until 10pm at Billups Art, which is located at 1008-C Woodland Street in the Five Points area of East Nashville.

Among the local artists who will be participating in the show are Meg Winston Macfadyen, Dustin Dirt, Deez Decks, Jessica Hill, Jeff Bertrand, Brooke E., Garrett Foster, Athena Workman, Abigale Horne, Heather Walker Cecil, Jodi Reeves, Charles Clary, Michael Bielaczyc, Ash Sivils, Janet Lee, AJ Illustrations and EastNashvilleBlog.com’s own Rachel Hall Kirk.

Come out and support your local artists' efforts to help our neighbors in need!

All of these generous artists’ work will be sold or auctioned off to benefit the charities working to bring relief to all our neighbors affected by this weekend’s flood. There will also be a food drive, so make sure to bring along any non-perishable canned goods that you can spare. Many of our neighbors who are either temporarily or permanently homeless also have pets, so the food drive at this weekend’s art show will accept non-perishable pet food as well.

If you can’t make it out this weekend to the Nashville Flood Relief Art Show, please consider sending a cash donation to the beneficiary organizations. For the Red Cross, you can donate online at www.nashvilleredcross.org, or by phone at 615-250-4300, or you can send $10 by texting ‘REDCROSS’ to 90999. For Hands On Nashville, click here to make an online donation or go to hon.org for more info on HON’s flood relief efforts.

UPDATE: The date of the show has been changed from the original night of May 8th. The show at Billups Art is now scheduled for next Saturday, May 15th, at 6pm.

  3. I am new to the area, unfamiliar with this group of artists, and quite truthfully don’t know if my offer is appropriate or not…BUT, I am a fine art photographer who would be very pleased to donate a piece to this charitable event. You have my Email address if you are interested in receiving a piece for this event. Thank you.

    Re: Song Release for Nashville Flood Relief, “Washed out in Nashville Tonight”

    Bruce L. Thiessen, Ph.D., a doctor who goes by his initials, Dr. BLT, has released a brand new, original song for victims of the flood in and around Nashville. The song, “Washed Out in Nashville Tonight,” came to Dr. BLT after Penny Marie, a friend and fellow musician who used to live in his hometown of Bakersfield, California and now resides in Nashville sent him word about the flood and corresponding footage.

    Dr. BLT will donate all profits from sales of the digital download version of the song to those afflicted by the flood via the Red Cross. The song can be sampled here:
