Picasso at Monthaven Art Center


Do you ever feel like Picasso is looking at you with a bit of disdain? 
What did I ever do to him!?!?!

It is fall break in Metro Nashville Public Schools.  My friend Julie and I made our way up to Hendersonville,TN to Monthaven Art & Culture Center to see Picasso: Master in Clay.  Now I've lived in middle TN since 1997, but I've never been to or even heard of Monthaven until this exhibit came.  WHAT A DELIGHTFUL DISCOVERY!!! This will not be my last visit.  They do not charge to enter, but do take a donation.  For a $10 donation, you receive a book that has all the images and information from the show (BEYOND WORTH IT!!!).

I loved these plate faces!!!

The bird vessels were beautiful! 

Now I LOVED the Picasso clay pieces, but I think I enjoyed the paintings by Marcel Mouly even more!  You can see the influence of Picasso & Matisse in his work, but he brings something distinctly different to his paintings.... COLOR!!!!  His colors seem very unlike those of Picasso.  Take a look & let me know what you think!
