Art Exhibits

The Ballroom Gallery seeks to encourage the appreciation of visual art and inspire our children, local artists and guests. 

Currently on exhibit:

The Dixie Carter Performing Arts Center Ballroom Gallery proudly presents a solo exhibition of fine art photography by Richard Barrow. The exhibition titled “Local Color - A Sense of Place” is a romantic look at the sublime, picturesque and beautiful landscapes across Tennessee inspired by early American painters from the 19th century to the abstract expressionists of the mid-20th century. “My art is a collaboration between artist and nature. I want to extend that experience by condensing everything I can of that moment into this two dimensional format of photography.” Barrow is a self taught photographic artist based in Nashville, TN. His work has been included in national group exhibitions, and his landscape and travel photography has appeared in publications including Lifestyles Magazine, USA Today, US News & World Report, and The Tennessean. 

The exhibition opens Feb. 2, 2019 and will be on display through Apr. 27, 2019. The opening reception honoring Mr. Barrow will take place on Feb. 16, 2019 from 5:00p.m.-7:00p.m. in the Ballroom Gallery. On the same date, “Shadows of the 60’s” will be performing in the Hal Holbrook Theatre at 2:00p.m. and a second performance at 7:30p.m. The reception takes place between these two performances, and we hope everyone attending will visit the gallery. The art gallery and reception are free and open to the public. Only ticket holders for the concert will be allowed in the theatre. Gallery hours are weekdays from 10:00a.m.-4:00p.m.  For additional information about this and other art exhibits at The Dixie, contact Laura at
