Dia Lo Gue: Symbolism In Abstraction says
David Lusk Gallery - Nashville is pleased to present the fifth installment of DiaLoGue, a series of art related conversations led by guest speakers and a curious audience.

This month's discussion is in conjunction with our current exhibition of new works by Hamlett Dobbins and Carlyle Wolfe. Dobbins's show, I Will Have to Tell You Everything, continues his fifteen-year practice of using abstraction to detail his experiences with particular people and places. Wolfe's show, Garden, stems from a desire to document a deeper understanding of the natural world around her.

Join us on Wednesday 18 January from 6-7pm for an open forum led by Mark Scala, Terry Thacker, and the artist Carlyle Wolfe.

Mark Scala is the chief curator at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Before coming to the Frist Center, Scala was curator at the Art Museum of Western Virginia, where he worked for ten years.
