The third installation of SIREN, a recurring arts series curated by artist Wendy Walker Silverman and hosted at White Avenue Studio, will feature "Reverence," a never-before-exhibited body of work by prolific nature photographer Byron Jorjorian, the paintings of country soul singer/songwriter Andrew Combs, and paintings by Wendy. We are thrilled to share the work of of these artists with Nashville in a FREE public event. NECAT Network will be on site as the event beneficiary.
Fine art photographer Byron Jorjorian has been capturing the natural world for over 35 years. He is considered by many to be one of the nation’s premier fine art nature photographers. With over 475,000 images in his files, his photographs have appeared on nationally published greeting cards, magazines, posters, murals, fine art prints, books, brochures and advertising. Byron has had over 11,000 images published and has had over 22,000 fine art prints installed all over the United States and around the world, working closely with interior design and art consultant teams on a daily basis.
You may know Andrew Combs for his music, but his recent surreal and dream-like paintings caught the eye of Wendy as she was beginning to conceptualize SIREN 3, and Combs' work often parallels the themes in Jorjorian's "Reverence" portfolio. Andrew says, “I want to create for the rest of my life — writing, singing, painting. I also want my life to include a family, a house, and kids. Seeking out other artists who’ve been able to keep the lights on without compromising their art – that keeps me inspired.”
Wendy will also have selected pieces included in the exhibition which tie in thematically with the natural symbolism in the work exhibited of Jorjorian and Combs. Her work has been described as atmospheric, ethereal, and delicately dramatic.
