Stephen Graham:

Has been selected to create a public art piece for Hermitage to be dedicated in October 2013.

“I’ve always been enamored with the concept of block printing. In 2006, My initial purpose for carving woodblocks was to make t-shirt prints but quickly realized the blocks themselves are works of art. Since that time, I’ve dedicated all of my time to fine-tuning my skills and am currently working on commissioned works for individuals around the world.”

Myles Maillie:

Myles Maillie’s colorful and ubiquitous work has adorned everything from buses, box towers and room size murals to tee shirts and ties, making him one of Nashville’s most recognizable and enduring artists. Maillie’s style is energetic, often full of frivolity and nevertheless articulate and well conceived. Maillie’s new pieces reflect the caliber and the confidence of a well-seasoned artist.

Phil Ponder:

For over thirty years, Phil Ponder has painted historic structures in Middle Tennessee. His unique style is accomplished through a combination of pen and ink/watercolor techniques emphasizing great detail and warmth of color.

Randy Purcell:

The creator of “In Concert” the Donelson Hermitage community mural project.  The dedication of this mural will be the official kickoff to “Artober” 2012.

Randy L Purcell is a creative artist working in Middle Tennessee. He is currently working on a series of unique encaustic paintings, using a method of transferring ink from magazine pages onto a bed of beeswax. The subjects of his current series explore memories and the paths they can take us.
