Glenn Taylor – When Heat Meets Rust
Sept. 4, 2017 - Nov. 26, 2017
Art Case, C Waiting Lounge

Glenn Taylor was born in Nashville, Tenn., and grew up in rural East Tennessee. Creativity and a vivid imagination were necessary in a town where arcades and movie theaters didn’t exist, and children were responsible for their own entertainment. The great outdoors became Glenn Taylor’s canvas, while scraps of metal and other discarded items became his medium. One could definitely conclude that his childhood beginnings played a pivotal role in the artist he would later become. After serving in the U.S. Army, Glenn settled in Nashville, Tenn., and became a trusted name in the commercial construction industry. After long-ignored injuries from his time in the military finally demanded his retirement, Glenn found renewed strength and purpose in creating unique pieces of art from scrap metal. All his work is one-of-a-kind using antique discarded parts.
 
Taylor’s work is exhibited at Harpeth Art Gallery, located on highway 70 South in Pegram, Tenn. Having never met a stranger, his love for sharing the history behind his unique pieces will surely bring a smile to your face, if you ever have the opportunity to meet him.
