Jennifer Kaufman | jennifer.kaufman@lifestylepubs.com

All You Need is Love—and Art FEBRUARY IS OUR MONTH OF ART—MAKING, COLLECTING, ADMIRING AND LEARNING. We love art because it gives us a glimpse of someone’s heart, the part of them we don’t see on the surface. We are all drawn to art in different ways. We like to look at and listen to art that makes us feel something, art that resonates with us. Through art, we learn about ourselves.

As you read about the local artists in our community and their stories of passion and self-expression, we hope that you too are inspired to pursue what you love. After all, February is the month of love. So, Brentwood, while you fill your home with chocolate truffles and roses this month, remember to fill your heart too. Find what makes you feel alive—and don’t forget to share it with us. Today is always a great day to love yourself.

FREE CPR CLASSES AT THE BRENTWOOD LIBRARY During the month of February, the Brentwood Fire & Rescue Department will be offering free cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes at the Brentwood Library. CPR is a lifesaving technique that is useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near drowning, in which someone's heart has stopped beating. The classes will be offered on February 7, 14, 21, and 28, beginning at 6:30pm. Each class will last approximately two hours and is geared toward those ages 16 and up. Classes will offer training on infant, child, and adult CPR. Participants will be taught “hands only” CPR (no mouth-tomouth breathing). This class will utilize the American Heart Association’s Friends & Family curriculum; therefore no CPR card will be issued. More information can be found on the American Heart Association’s website. At Tailored Living, our designers are the local experts at maximizing your living space and getting your home beautifully organized with custom storage and flooring systems.

Classes are limited to 30 people per class. To register, contact Scott Barnes at scott.barnes@brentwoodtn.gov or call 371-2200 ext. 4523.

OPEN HOUSE (CONTINUED)

Rachel began her work as a ceramicist almost eight years ago by simply agreeing to take a class with a friend. Her goal is to make “extremely functional items” all while staying within a color scheme of whites, blues and greens; “peaceful and beachy”. Looking at her pieces they have a delicate and elegant look most pottery pieces don’t evoke. Her pieces are pragmatic and even her business cards read to her pottery ideology; “handmade pottery for everyday use.” Like most truly talented artists when asked about how she plans her work, Rachel says she usually has an idea but in the end she has to “follow what the clay is doing.” Early in her pottery career Rachel was an artist at The Clay Lady’s Artist Co-op and Galleries at in Nashville which houses a very small number of evolving artists. You can commission items from Rachel by emailing her at potterybyrj@gmail.com.

Todd is a master pipe maker and has been pipe making for over 20 years and has trained almost every successful North American pipe maker. He got his artistic start with his father on his pre 1948 hot rods in high school. After he made a pipe for a friend on a whim Todd decided it was time to “learn how to make a pipe for real” and apprenticed all over the world spending some of his favorite time in Copenhagen. Todd shapes are influenced by Danish modernism, as well as the Japanese concept of “wabi-sabi,” often defined as the intersection of transience and imperfection. As Todd puts it, “symmetry is always the least interesting way to achieve balance.”  One of Todd’s more unique pieces is owned by the Museum of Modern Art in its photogram form. It can be seen in rotating exhibits. Todd travels to Northern Italy to hand select his wood for the pipes, most often Briarwood, paying special attention to grain stroke. Todd’s pieces can be found at www.smokingpipes.com.

GRACE GOOD IS CERTIFIED IN AERIAL ARTS AND USES HER KNOWLEDGE TO TEACH AT THE NASHVILLE CIRCUS CENTER LOCATED IN BRENTWOOD ON GENERAL GEORGE PATTON DRIVE.  She directs the curriculum and teaches both children and adults, along with other professionals and teachers. Grace specializes in private and corporate events and circus productions proven to knock people’s socks off.  Grace and co-owner Emily Tiller, who is a belly and fire dancer, began “Beyond Wings Circus” in 2013. They specialize in themed events for any industry. While some might picture clowns and elephants when they hear the word “circus”, Grace and “Beyond Wings Circus” is anything but that.  Although  she is quick to note she’s happy to play to that theme for customers. Some of her more popular themes are Great Gatsby, Fire and Ice and the classic Greatest Showman circus theme. Grace studied business at MTSU but she began her circus career before that with her initial interest in hula hooping. Grace’s talent is seemingly endless and extends far beyond her ability to control up to 30 hula hoops at one time.  In an act she can control multiple hula hoops in conjunction with other awe-inspiring acts. Grace can also walk on a four foot globe, walk on stilts, perform aerial silk and rope acts and can flip and toss in air.  Not that she needs more to impress ARTICLE ASHLEY HUTCHESON

GIVING BACK

' M Y B AG M Y S T O RY ' AS A FORMER FOSTER PARENT, BRENTWOOD RESIDENT CARA FINGER REALIZED MANY HEART-BREAKING MOMENTS WERE HAPPENING WITH CHILDREN WHO UNEXPECTEDLY FACE FOSTER CARE. So, she decided to take steps to provide a gesture of comfort to those children, and found a new way to promote their self-worth and dignity. Last August, Cara launched a nonprofit called My Bag My Story to provide duffel bags and backpacks for children who are in foster care, giving them a personal, new way to store their belongings. “When we became foster parents, I saw children carrying all they possessed in plastic sacks. It steals a child’s self-respect when you give them a trash bag for the only things they have in life. Sometimes the only thing kids have control over is their stuff,” recalls Cara. “Children in foster care often have many issues working against them, due to no fault of their own. Something so small as having their own decent bag can go a long way,” she says. Cara knows deeply how meaningful small acts of kindness can be. As an infant, she was adopted and has lived a happy, secure life. Among her three children, two are adopted. “In our own backyard in Brentwood, people aren’t aware of the plights

NONPROFIT RESTORES CONFIDENCE TO FOSTER CHILDREN ONE CARRYALL AT A TIME

of children who are in the foster care program. So much can be obtained by kindness provided at the right moments in a child’s life,” Cara says. She’s also hoping to partner with local dance or art companies who may be able to provide scholarships or discounted rates for children in foster care. My Bag My Story offers its bags online and through pop-up events, with each less than $50. Cara indicates when a person buys one, another

is given to children entering foster care or moving from one foster care family to another. She says people can buy bags to donate directly as well. College students, moms and preschoolers are her current main customers, she says. Cara is grateful for the instrumental support she’s gotten from Belmont University students in the Enactus social entrepreneurial organization within the Massey School of Business. They helped her with filing paperwork to become a nonprofit, establishing logistics for retail sales and developing public awareness.

Kelli wants people to know you can have fun creating your board. For instance, she once did a board where there were a lot of 30-something year old guys in attendance.  In addition to using lots of meats and cheeses she also added Pringles and Doritos in place of crackers which turned out to be a big hit.  Also, she recommends you try and arrange your board where your meat, cheese, crackers and jam compliment one another.   Whether you're looking to do a 12' board for 125 people or a "date night" board for two, Kelli can create the perfect one for you.  Savory or sweet (or both)!  Check out her Instagram @onboardnashville

LOCAL’ S CHOICE (CONTINUED)

Your eye may be caught by several pieces of blue and white colored work in the gallery created by Colleen. This type of art known as Cyanotype is a historical method of art using sun, time and water to, in essence, capture a photograph. These camera-less photographs capture the subjects in dramatic blues. The most fascinating aspect of these photos is the sentimentality that can be added to these works. Colleen, who will do commissioned pieces, adds layers of meaning unheard of in other works of art. Cyanotype makes an ideal way to preserve the memory of a baptism outfit, wedding veil, or other heirloom items. As an additional layer, the water from the baptism or the environmental elements, such as sun, wind, flowers, or other meaningful objects from a life event can be incorporated into the overal design, capturing a timeless, meaningful, and one of a kind piece.  As an additional layer, the water, possibly from the baptism or sun at the wedding ceremony site create their own footprint on the piece. 62

Brentwood Lifestyle | February 2020


Don has been known to pour over thousands of paintings only to bring home around 80 for the gallery. Listening to comments and feedback from customers on the gallery floor Don will often keep in mind size, color and style wishes. One project Colleen is excited about is helping homeowners or historical gardens and institutions preserve their landscape by creating site specific documentation of the specimens from the garden, using the same sun and water the garden received to grow the flora and fauna to magically capture the essence of the space in her stunning cyanotypes! Â Stonebridge Art Gallery really is your local gem when it comes to art; global, local and custom framing.

Purchasing original art can seem like a self-indulgent act; you are picking out something perceived to be expensive and strictly for your own taste. The fact is that art purchases are a wise decision. In a world where practically everything is mass produced having a one-of-a kind automatically lends an air of value. In addition, some original pieces of art will appreciate in value and can be worth more, even after years of hanging in your house, than when you first purchased the piece. There is a lot of emotion tied into art. Not only the tone it can set for the room and those in the room, it can help you process and identify emotion. With a piece that has sentimentality to the artist, location or time the piece was purchased, it can provide comfort.

SAVOR EVERY CUP AT SYPCOFFEE GIVE THE GIFT OF COFFEE

LIFE IS SHORT! That is a motto we have all heard before. Some people just say it without giving the words much thought and others really grasp it’s meaning. Sometimes it takes adversity or loss for us to realize how precious life is. In these moments we realize how short life can be. Meet Craig, the founder of SYP (Savor Your Planet) Coffee, who was working in a corporate job until personal loss struck his family. He made a decision at that time to follow his dream of starting his own business. After all, you only live once! When Craig started this business his vision was to sell just one item. A SYPCOFFEE gift box set. Craig did not anticipate, after getting a taste of these incredible coffees from Kenya, Honduras and Columbia, that customers would demand more. SYPCOFFEE currently has a retail space nestled among luxury vehicles such as Bentley, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Maserati & Alfa Romeo, of Carlock Motorcars Nashville. In a move that would seem to some like an interesting business decision, Craig, gives every guest a complimentary cup of coffee poured at his shop. Every person has a different way they take their coffee. “I don’t believe in the term “connoisseur”. Why does it matter what someone else likes if YOU don’t like it,” says Craig. “I don’t want to be a coffee shop, which is why I’ll ask you how you like your coffee, create it the way I think you would savor and give you a free cup to try. My hope is you have an experience with that cup and will want to gift that to someone you love or take some home.”

How To 'Eat The Frog'? ...ONE FITNESS STEP AT A TIME ARTICLE JULIE BROWN PATTON

TENNESSE’S FIRST ‘EAT THE FROG FITNESS’ CENTER SOON WILL OPEN IN BRENTWOOD’S HILL CENTER AT 205 FRANKLIN ROAD. It’s designed to deliver highly personalized, exercise workouts in a studio setting. Beth Stromatt will operate the new 3,071-square foot studio, which is the concept’s 33rd location. The studio was founded by 2008 Olympic gold medalist Bryan Clay and longtime fitness executive Joe Culver. The company’s name comes from Mark Twain’s famous saying:  ‘If you eat a live frog first thing each morning, nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.’ “Fitness is most people’s ‘frog,’ it’s what they procrastinate about the most. Eat the Frog Fitness members across the country that follow the prescribed personalized workout plan are achieving faster and longer-lasting results as opposed to what they realized with their former fitness routines,” Beth says. “We’re thrilled to bring the first Eat the Frog Fitness to Tennessee in Brentwood,” she adds. Beth  says she searched for a fitness concept that was unique and new to Williamson County. She’s been a Williamson County resident for the past 15 years. “Bryan and Joe’s approach to helping people achieve their fitness goals over the long term was especially appealing,” she says. “Our approach empowers members to build and maintain their fitness growth,” she adds. “This program threw out the old metrics and rewrote the playbook to provide a completely different experience from what people typically experience at gyms and through personal training.” She affirms that her team will focus on small group training that combines athletic-inspired training, cutting edge technology, and the science of human bodies for advanced workouts.

Brentwood Lifestyle | February 2020


THE CENTER’S PROGRAMS DIVIDE INTO FOUR MAIN EFFORTS: + Flexcore sessions to improve power, agility, core muscle strength, posture, balance, stability, and coordination. + Strength sessions use Nubell weights, Alpha sandbags and the TRX training system to build strength and tone muscle while also improving bone density and promoting fat-free body mass. These sessions are designed to help participants get stronger, burn more calories, boost energy levels and prevent disease. + Cardio sessions expand workout capacities by using a combination of Concept II Rowers and Keiser Spin Bikes. This proprietary combination of low impact and high intensity equipment allows people to train harder and smarter. + Recovery exercises are encouraged and used after every session, using a combination of Trigger Point rollers and state-of-the-art stretching and recovery exercises—all with the goal of decreasing risks of injuries. The studio’s certified lead trainer is Megan Jox, who has 11 years of personal training experience. Megan has had a wide range of clients from high school athletes to immobile elderly. She also previously worked at Mercy Ministries in Nashville as the fitness manager. Additionally,  Beth  says they will have coach-lead classes at all the typical times, but also will offer virtual classes every hour to meet every schedule.

Founded by 2008 Olympic gold medal winning decathlete Bryan Clay and longtime fitness executive Joe Culver, Eat the Frog Fitness programs deliver highly personalized workouts, in a studio setting, 24 hours per day, seven days a week. They will offer live  and virtual 24 hour classes.
