Leadership Donelson-Hermitage hosts the sixth annual ARTable at The Clay Lady’s Campus. Bringing together artists and art enthusiasts is the centerpiece of the event, and when combined with delicious wine, food and conversation, an unforgettable experience is the likely result. Phil Ponder, Randy Purcell, Larry and Tracey Rogers are the four incredible artists returning as a throwback to the first years of ARTable.
Best known for his prints of skylines and historic buildings, Phil Ponder has been influencing the development of Middle Tennessee’s artistic style since 1979. Ponder will share a demonstration of water color techniques at the event.
Randy Purcell is a Mixed Media Artist who uses a unique Encaustic process. He will demonstrate his intricate work of transferring ink onto beeswax, which is combined in a mosaic-like effect to create a larger picture.
Larry and Tracey Rogers create unique pottery with various firing techniques. They will collaborate to demonstrate Aluminum Foil Saggar, Horse Hair and Raku firing.
We are celebrating six years and offering tickets for $25 – the same price as the very first ARTable.
ARTable 2017 attendees can expect to arrive at The Clay Lady’s Campus [1416 Lebanon Pike, Nashville] around 4:30 p.m. for a preview, with demonstrations beginning at 5:30 p.m., and an auction with wine, dessert and drawings to follow.

ARTable is presented annually by Leadership Donelson Hermitage and is sponsored by Arts at the Airport, Apartment Selector, Nashville Arts Magazine, The Clay Lady’s Campus, Picture This Creative Framing and Gallery, and Holladay Properties. ARTable was created by Matt Fischer, owner of Picture This.
“Across town ARTable was in full swing at the Clay Lady’s Campus. Four artists – a potter, a glassmaker, a painter and a poet – were engaged in a form of art speed-dating connecting these four artists with eager participants. Four groups spent half an hour with each artist watching, listening, and participating in the creation of art. At the end of the night, the artists’ four pieces were auctioned off to a very enthusiastic crowd. Kudos to Matt Fischer for creating a fun and informative event.”
