Red blackberry vines once covered the property where Lori Putnam built her studio in 2015. This studio painting is part of Lori Putnam: Close to Home, a solo exhibition of 24 new works on exhibit and available at LeQuire Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee, through Dec. 31st.

Painting the landscape near Putnam’s home meant rediscovering her artist’s eye for all things familiar. In the exhibition catalog, she expresses how childhood memories came flooding back as she explored, painted, and gathered resource materials for her show, two years in the making.
