Free Art and Reuse Lead to Painter’s First Gallery Show
Rami Singh Bell’s Re-growth, Opens January 14, 2017 at Turnip Green Creative Reuse’s Green Gallery
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (January 4, 2017) – Rami Singh Bell, a life-long flower arranger, reignited her passion for painting after discovering both Turnip Green Reuse and Free Art Movement Nashville. Those discoveries lead to a creative burst that culminates with Re-Growth, Bell’s first gallery show. Re-Growth takes place at The Green Gallery at Turnip Green Creative Reuse (TGCR) on January 14, 2017, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., at 945 Woodland St, Nashville, TN 37206. This community event is free, open to the public and features the artist reception, snacks and drinks. The show will be on display in the Green Gallery through February 7, 2017.
“I was going through a tough time when I discovered Turnip Green Creative Reuse,” says Bell. “I spent all the money I had at the time on canvases, paint and brushes. That got me to painting again. About the same time I discovered the Free Art Movement here in Nashville. There’s something about creating art and sending it out into the world that was and still is therapeutic for me. I love the sense of community that I found.”
Bell resides in Middle Tennessee. Her inspiration is derived from the beauty in nature and she captures the abstract color and textures of living things. She recreates these colorful recreations on reused canvases and vinyl records. The Green Gallery at Turnip Green Creative Reuse is proud to be involved in Bell’s first gallery show.
