I’m ridiculously happy to discover that there’s a circuit bending workshop happening in Nashville on Sunday, March 13th at 2 p.m. Little Harpeth Brewing is hosting “Circuit Bending: Exactly What Your Mom Told You Not To Do As A Child.” The workshop is led by multimedia artist McLean Fahnestock and presented by Gallery Luperca.

If you want to attend the 3-hour event, order your tickets now. Space is limited, and they need time to know how many parts to order.

Here are the details from the event page.

Circuit bending is the creative, chance-based customization of the circuits within low voltage battery-operated toys and gadgets to create new musical or visual instruments and noise-makers. Bring an old, used toy that still works, open it up, and learn how to make it into your own sound machine.

This workshop will get you started. We will cover the basics of circuit exploration, soldering, and switches. The $25 class fee covers an assortment of parts for you to try. Basic tools will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own kit if you would like. Bring a toy or two and make sure you have batteries!

Sunday, March 13th, 2 p.m., 3 hours, $25 in advance

East Nashville’s Gallery Luperca has some cool shows coming up, including a Michael Nott photography show in December and the Lindsay Goranson directed play Manuscript November 6 through 14. I interviewed Goranson about the play and her move to Nashville in the October edition of Nashville Arts Magazine.

Gallery Luperca also recently opened a call for artists for the January show No Skyline Nashville. Here’s an excerpt of the press release:

Gallery Luperca invites artists who currently live in, have lived in, or have been influenced by time spent in Nashville to create work about this place that we love.  For this show we want to celebrate all the aspects of life in Nashville WITHOUT referencing the skyline.

When you think of art about Nashville, do repeated images of the skyline flash through your mind? Perhaps rainbow tinted batman buildings?  What does art about Nashville look like if it doesn’t look like the downtown skyline?  We’re set to find out.

Gallery Luperca is located in East Nashville, a creative, thriving neighborhood of artists and musicians. Accepted work will be on display January 9 through January 30, with an opening reception in conjunction with the East Side Art Stumble on Saturday January 9 from 6 to 10 p.m.

This call is open to all 2 and 3 dimensional art forms, including but not necessarily limited to painting, drawing, illustration, mixed media, photography, sculpture, and digital media.  With reasonable exceptions for photography and digital art, no reproductions will be considered.  Unframed canvases must be gallery wrapped and wired. Art must be properly wired and ready for display.  Please keep artwork under 18” on the longest side.  You are welcome to submit up to 5 pieces.
