Homegrown hands:

Mother-Daughter Art Exhibit

at the historic Buchanan Log House November 5, 6pm-9pm & november 6, 12pm-8pm


Betty Turney-Turner, Artist/Owner of This Little Light Glass Art Studio, and daughter, Maya Turner, wood carver at Maya Papaya Art, will present a Mother-Daughter art show at the historic Buchanan Log House November, 5 and 6.

The show, entitled “Homegrown Hands, Art of The Turney Women,” will showcase the talented duos mastery of the non-traditional fine art of glass, and portraiture in carved wood.  Both women are lifelong residents of Nashville, TN, with a five year residency in South Korea for Maya, and national and international travel and study of glass art creation and techniques with world renowned glass masters for Betty.

Although both women have shown their art in numerous art exhibits, they have never shown their work together. “We felt it was time to showcase our work, and our love of unconventional art processes together,” said Turney-Turner.

Both women feel that the Historic Buchanan Log House, with its deep roots in the Nashville community, is a perfect venue for two hometown women with equally deep Tennessee roots, to display their love of creating artwork that is both demanding and oftentimes extremely difficult on the hands tasked with bringing their passions to life.

The Artists’ Opening Reception is Friday, November 5, from 6 to 9 pm, and on Saturday, November 6, from 12 noon until 8 pm.   The public is invited to attend this free exhibit of unconventional fine art by two of Nashville’s very own homegrown artists.
