Audacity, A Bennett Art Exhibit

Amanda Bennett remembers painting with her grandmother as a child, who used a spatula as her primary tool. However, it wasn’t until years later, staring at the blank walls of her loft in Birmingham, Alabama, that she rediscovered her passion for the process of creation. Though it began as a practical answer to the abject poverty of life after college, this act of thrifty outfitting inspired her to cultivate her own unique style, a place where process demands as much attention as its end result.

A Huntsville native, Amanda moved to Nashville seven years ago, where she finally got serious about her art. Her music inspired art gained local attention, and lately, you can check out her work in local digs such as Fanny’s House of Music in East Nashville, Two Old Hippies in The Gulch, and Local Taco in Sylvan Park. She was a featured artist in ReTune Nashville, a benefit to support local musicians who experienced loss in the flood in 2010. When RAW, an L.A.-based artist showcase, debuted in Nashville, Bennett was among the first artists chosen to participate.

Bennett has had one transformative year. This evolution is evident, as her work has transitioned from music-inspired pieces to transcendent abstracts; a reflection of her own complex simplicity. But, if you're wondering where you'll find Bennett lately, it's snapping crazy cool shots of familiar signage around Nashvegas and beyond. She has taken two things she loves, acrylic mediums and photography, and transformed them in to a funk style mash up on plywood for your viewing pleasure.

Bennett is never too far from her grandmother’s easel, creating art inspired by the technique and the soul of her teacher.
