Tennessee Tech University visiting art professor Kimberly Winkle’s “Flying Solo Exhibition,” entitled “A Squiggle and a Dot,” is on display now until Sept. 6 at the Nashville International Airport.

Winkle’s exhibit includes works that combine furniture and sculptural elements through the use of mahogany, poplar and hard maple as well as milk paint with drawing on the surfaces.

“The exhibit features a combination of tables and furnishings such as mirrors, bowls and candlesticks,” said Winkle. “Employing traditional furniture making-techniques and materials, I build forms and structures with results that are, often times, untraditional.”

Travelers and art enthusiasts alike can find the exhibit located near the Starbucks at the meet-and-greet area before security at gates C/D.

“Flying Solo” is a quarterly exhibition series featuring art in the airport terminal in order to provide a venue for contemporary artists with a connection to Tennessee.

Arts at the Airport receives funding for the visual arts from the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority and the Tennessee Arts Commission.
