Rose exhibits Rhythms of Jazz in Nashville

1/12/2017

Professor Ted Rose’s art exhibit, “Rhythms of Jazz,” at the University Club of Nashville’s Lott Gallery has been extended through March 31.

The brilliantly colored paintings are inspired by his appreciation of jazz, and the titles are reflective of the music genre as well. Nashville Arts magazine featured an article about the exhibit, with photographs taken by a CU alumnus, Micah Beard. [click here to see the article]

“Everyday is a gift, and everyday is a chance to create,” said Rose.

Rose also is the chairman of the art department at CU’s School of Humanities, Education, and the Arts. He was awarded the Joe W. Giles Lifetime Achievement Award by the Tennessee Arts Academy in 2016 for his work as an educator, artist, author and consultant. His art explores a diverse range of concepts and content, from highly-detailed works to more abstract pieces, is displayed in more than 300 private collections and more than 100 corporate collections, including the collections of several Fortune 500 companies. He has had 21 solo exhibitions in seven states, six international exhibitions, and has received more than 50 awards for his work.  

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
