The best and most unique pieces are often found in the smallest towns and the most unique are found in big cities, according to an annual art market that has drawn more than 100,000 people to Nashville in recent years.
Nashville is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, drawing more than 1.4 million visitors annually, according the Tourism Marketing Association.
The city is home to several famous landmarks including the Tennessee statehouse, the state fairgrounds and Vanderbilt University.
Art in the city is often based on themes or symbols, and there are plenty of examples.
There’s a huge array of hand-painted paintings in the historic downtown, some dating to the 19th century.
Artifacts are also often found at local museums, and it’s not uncommon to see a large, decorative sculpture hanging from a tree in one of Nashville’s most famous landmarks.
But it’s a little surprising to find so much in one place.
Art Market Nashville, held at the Art Center of Nashville, is a big draw.
The event attracts tens of thousands of people each year and has sold more than $5 million in merchandise.
Art is usually bought and sold by people in the market, and many are collectors who are seeking out items for display.
In addition to selling the artwork, people also offer advice, tips and other information on what’s new in the art world.
One of the highlights at the market this year was the sale of a $20,000 painting by British painter Charles Babbage.
The artist’s wife, Lillian, purchased the painting from a local art dealer who was offering it for a large sum.
She said the seller offered to take the painting to London to have it restored, and that the buyer offered to help pay for the restoration.
But it’s all about finding a unique piece of art that’s perfect for your collection.
It can take years to create a piece that’s the perfect fit for your home or collection, said Emily Hensley, executive director of the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau.
She said there’s a certain amount of luck involved with buying art and it all comes down to how good of a match you’re looking for.
If you’re searching for something that’s unique, she said, you’ll be more likely to find it.
Some of the items on sale at the Nashville Art Market included a 16th century painting of a woman and a horse, a 18th century bronze bust of a blacksmith and a 1649 portrait of a young woman, all of which were sold for $1,000 each.
Other items included an 18th-century statue of a bear with a large red nose, an 1868 18th and 19th-Century painting of an African-American, a 15th- and 16th-Catherine de Medici portrait of Queen Mary and an 1853 portrait of an angel.
Hensley said the market was especially popular in the spring and summer, when art is still on display and people are taking it easy.
It’s a time when people want to make their mark on the history of Nashville and the region, she added.
“It’s really great to see the art market continue to grow and thrive, and to see how people are making their mark,” she said.
