Nashville is home to a wealth of creative talent and we love to feature work from TVC’s own artist in our Gallery from time-to-time. Our current art show features the work of Brent Hunter. The work displayed in his new show Travel Sketches: To Carry and to Leave Behind focuses on the ephemeral nature of our memories. As Brent puts it, “taking time to observe and draw allows a person to truly experience and remember a place.” The Gallery is located in the Living Room at the Hillsboro Village Campus.
Nashville is a creative town, with many Music City residents making a living in the arts. While music is the most obvious example of that, there are also many writers, visual artists and other creative types who use their talents to create a career. Here at TVC, we make a concerted effort to help these creative individuals connect, share their talents, celebrate the work of others and gain support for the unique challenges of these professions.
From art shows and Creative Arts Potlucks to “TVC Arts Presents” special events, there’s something for everyone. And you don’t need to be a professional artist – or even an amateur one! – to participate. Anyone interested in exploring issues of faith and creativity are welcome.
The Village Chapel community is a diverse and talented collection of individuals, many of whom are artists. The Living room provides an inviting canvas, serving as a seasonal gallery to showcase the eclectic talents of creatives who call TVC home.

TVC Art Shows Mission Statement
In a continued effort to integrate the aspects of a flourishing life, we believe artists have the opportunity to contribute a visual narrative, expressing a thoughtful theology of beauty. The art shows we present exist to:
Glorify God, support the disciplined efforts of artists, and display works for the benefit and enjoyment of our community
Inspire and express a sense of awe, wonder, astonishment, and watchfulness
Give voice through visual medium to those who pursue a long obedience, in the same direction
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. – Philippians 4:8
