Recent Work by Lori Field and Carol Gove

For her second solo show at Cumberland Gallery, Lori Field presents an array of delicately painted “miniature portraits,” silverpoint drawings, and “wearable sculptures” which she casts in various metals. Titled Small Saints and Silver Linings, this exhibit breaks down her art making process into small individual portraits while showcasing her fantastical narratives, ambiguous characters, and detailed compositions across multiple disciplines. New Hampshire artist Carol Gove presents recent work to Nashville in her first solo show at Cumberland Gallery, Shared Differences. As an abstract expressionist, Gove combines a fluidity and opacity of acrylic paint, collage, and personal memorabilia such as old letters, sheet music, and sewing patterns.
