Artist Reception, June 2nd 7-9p
801 Percy Warner Boulevard
Nashville, TN 37205
On exhibit for the month of June 2011 at the GJCC Gallery in Nashville is a show that takes us back to our beginnings. Artist Kristin Llamas depicts traditional lullabies through paint and patch-worked canvas. The exhibit is meant to tap into the subconscious and reveal our most hidden, inner truths. It returns viewers to their core, back when the world faded away with the humble hum of a lullaby. Both children and adults alike inspire the work in this show. For Kristin, it stems from a comforting attachment to the lullaby her mother used to sing “Hush Little Baby,” which she now passes to her own children.
Llamas begins her paintings by tearing apart, then sewing together the canvas. Each piece is then layered with dripping color, mirrored-writing, sketches and delicately painted images. Llamas’ work will remain on display at the GJCC Gallery for the entire month of June, with an artist reception June 2nd from 7-9p.

In Memory of Norma Fischer
Last year at this time, Llamas’ grandmother, Norma Fisher attended her exhibit at the GJCC art gallery. It was the first time Norma visited the artist in Nashville, and the only time that she was able to view one of her grand-daughters exhibits in person. A week before the hanging of this show, Norma passed away suddenly. Kristin now shares her work once again at the GJCC in Nashville in honor of her beloved grandmother. The theme, returning to one’s roots becomes a poetic memorial to those loved and those lost.
