Untitled Artists Group Presents the 2011 Winter Show ANTI-FREEZE

Nashville's UNTITLED Artists Group welcomes you to its 2011 Winter show "ANTI-FREEZE," Friday, December 9 from 6 to 10 p.m.  This free, all-ages, one-night-only art event will take place at Marathon Village, located at 1305 Clinton Street near downtown Nashville. 

It's time to enjoy great art, cocktails, and fascinating people in a relaxed non-traditional environment and unique venue. Join Nashville's emerging and innovative artists for the group's last show of 2011. "ANTI-FREEZE" is the latest in a series of successful quarterly exhibitions that support artistic innovation and offer alternative visual art in non-traditional spaces.  Untitled charges no commission to exhibiting artists and offers the opportunity for patrons to view and purchase original art by local artists.  Patrons may purchase artwork by cash or check and may take their pieces home with them at 10 p.m. the evening of the show.

Untitled is excited to partner with historic MARATHON VILLAGE as the location of the winter show. ANTI-FREEZE will take place in the 3,000 square foot event space located on the third floor with spectacular views of the Nashville skyline.

Serving as a model of adaptive reuse of historic structures, Marathon Village is one of Nashville's most creative communities -- with more than 45 tenants representing fine, commercial and performing arts.

The shuttered Marathon Factory was languishing in weeds and neglect when urban visionary Barry Lyle Walker recognized its potential and bought it in 1986. Walker has overseen development of his Marathon Village into a 4 block complex housing artists' and photographers' studios, offices, radio station, a fitness center, a gallery, Corsair Artisan Distillery and Antique Archaeology. The redevelopment of the 32,000 square ft. administration office building/130,000 square ft. factory into commercial studio space is in its twenty-fifth year of continual renovation.

In addition to art by many local veteran and emerging artists, complimentary drinks, and mingling, live performances are scheduled throughout the evening as well as music by DJ Get Better. Performers include: Blue Moves Modern Dance Company and Umbra A'Shadi.
