Connecting Through Art

May 5-7, 2016 at Harding Academy

Since 1975, The Harding Art Show has brought together the greater Nashville community for a weekend of art and celebration. Join us for this three-day fine art sale, which is open to the public. Proceeds from the show benefit Harding Academy student programs, facilities and arts education.



2016 Participating Artists

A unique mix of more than 60 local, regional, and nationally renowned artists will bring paintings, sculpture, photography, drawings, wood works, jewelry, and more. On behalf of the Artist Selection Committee, we’re pleased to present three featured artists for The 2016 Harding Art Show: Herb Williams, Alex Beard, and Adrien Saporiti. Please be sure to check back soon to see the other talented artists who will be participating!


Featured Artists

Each of these noteworthy artists works in a unique style and will connect and collaborate with attendees in meaningful ways. You’ll have opportunities to experience art in a whimsical and wonderful outdoor setting filled with sculptures made of crayons, participate in a painting class taught by the creator of abstract naturalism and learn about wildlife conservation, and be the first to see new works of art created by an artist synonymous with Nashville, who also happens to be a Harding alumnus.




Harding Academy is grateful to its donors and corporate sponsors, without whom The Harding Art Show would not be possible.
