6/2: James Perrin’s Heterogeneity Opening at Tinney Contemporary

Much like Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane, our favorite days of the month are the 15th and 1st. No, it’s not because that’s when we get paid (though that certainly helps). The 15th is when our magazines hit stands, and the 1st means the Nashville First Saturday Art Crawl is right around the corner.

This month, the crawl is happening Saturday, June 2, and there’s one show we’re particularly excited about.  James Perrin is unveiling his long-awaited Heterogeneity exhibit at Tinney Contemporary, and we are psyched. If you’re not familiar, brush up on him by checking out our September 2015 Artist Spotlight on the local painter. Perrin will also bring his atmospheric, textural pieces to the Frist on June 22 as part of the Chaos and Awe: Painting for the 21st Century exhibit. The man is having moment, y’all!

And as always, there’s going to be so, so much other great work shown this weekend around the city. Visit here or here for all the info.
