“Women Painting Women: A Room of One’s Own” Featured in
Nashville Arts Magazine’s September Issue

World-class photographer Joyce Tenneson is no stranger to magazines. Her insightful portraits have graced the covers of Time, Life, Newsweek, Premiere, Esquire and The New York Times Magazine. But this month, Tenneson has made history with the ethereal Bird Woman featured on the cover of Nashville Arts magazine.

The piece is part of the “Women Painting Women: A Room of One’s Own” show at Haynes Galleries. It is a striking cover and a first for Nashville.

Tenneson — who is known for her tender, emotionally charged and insightful portraits, is considered one of the most influential women in the history of photography. She is the author of 13 books, including Wise Women, which was featured in a six-part Today Show series.

The “Women Painting Women” exhibit — which gets prominent play in Nashville Arts, explores how contemporary women artists approach a subject that has transfixed painters — mostly male — for centuries. “Women Painting Women: A Room of One’s Own” will be on view through Oct. 5 at the Music Row Roundabout gallery. Viewers can also pick up a copy of the history-making issue of Nashville Arts.
