Wertham Mills Loft Tour and Art Exhibition

The Lofts at Werthan Mills to open for Loft Tour and Art Exhibition

Nashville – The public is invited to join the residents of The Lofts at Werthan Mills and members of Untitled artists' group for a free, one-night-only Art Exhibition and Loft Tour on Friday, November 18th, from 5 pm to 9 pm. The Lofts at Werthan Mills are located at 1400 8th Avenue North.

Experience Extraordinary Art in an Extraordinary Space, as the historic Werthan Mills Building is transformed into a multi-floor art gallery featuring the work of Untitled artists. Built in 1882 as part of a cotton mill, the Werthan building now holds some of the most innovative architectural design in Nashville while retaining many historical elements of the original building. Its gleaming restored floors, exposed beams and occasional remnants of heavy machinery make a dramatic living space and an outstanding context for art. Residents will open selected lofts for the tour, including contemporary lofts designed by GELYN, and one or two that are currently available for purchase. Over 25 Nashville artists will contribute paintings, sculpture, photography, and mixed media, and will donate 10% of art sales to a hurricane relief fund.

Lance DuPre of DuPre Designs, an interior designer from New Orleans and resident at Werthan Mills, conceived and organized the event by connecting the Untitled artists' group to his neighbors at Werthan Mills. Artists, residents and sponsors have worked together to create a truly unique event showcasing new art and design.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of DuPre Designs, the City Living Team and Mark Deutschmann of Village Real Estate Services, this event is free and open to the public.
