I have been a part of Coop Gallery since the beginning in 2010, so what fun for DADU to get to host our fundraiser to bring great paintings to Nashville.
All works are $40, donated by the artists. Come buy one before I get them all.

DADU hosts first show (Sara Estes, Tennessean)
Also on Saturday night, the newest pop-up gallery space in East Nashville, DADU, will host an opening for its inaugural group exhibition, “Conversations.” DADU, which is the city code name for tiny homes on one’s property, short for Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit, is set to host quarterly exhibitions in conjunction with the East Side Art Stumble, an art crawl held on the second Saturday of each month. DADU’s first pop-up is a brick-and-mortar realization of a series of online exhibitions curated by galleryELL’s founder John Ros (NYC/London) in collaboration with director and artist Jodi Hays (Nashville). Notions of home, place and space are contemplated and examined in each artist’s practice. Artists include: Maria Christoforatou, Anna Freeman Bentley, Kariann Fuqua, Jodi Hays, Nancy Hubbard, Kei Imai, Kirsten Nash, Jaimini Patel and John Ros. DADU is at 1203 B Forrest Ave., in the alley between Gartland and Forrest avenues. Reception is 6-9 p.m. Admission is free.
