With a solid reputation for showcasing both established and emerging artists, Artclectic lives up to its name with a diverse assortment of juried exhibitors in a lively setting. This annual fundraiser, celebrating 20 years in 2016, has evolved into a nationally respected art show and community gathering. Generous crowds of patrons from the greater Nashville area look forward to the rich mix of media, unique in style and price.
In addition to attracting thousands of visitors, the show provides valuable art education for University School of Nashville students and the Nashville community through such enriching experiences as demonstrations, class tours and hands-on workshops. And, most importantly, proceeds from the event are earmarked for the Artclectic Endowment Fund for Innovative Teaching. This fund supports curricular innovation and classroom excellence.
Our Education Day activities are sponsored by Advance Financial Foundation. All lower school students tour the show with their teachers and parent docents. They ask amazing questions and make thoughtful observations about what they see. Artists demonstrate the processes involved in their work and even allow for young assistants.
