Marty Stuart Photo Exhibition Opens at Nashville’s Frist Center

Marty Stuart has proven over the years that he can wield a camera as dexterously as a mandolin or guitar. Marty’s photography skills are now on display at a new exhibition, American Ballads: The Photographs of Marty Stuart, at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, beginning Friday (May 9).

American Ballads features photos of legendary musicians such as Johnny Cash, sights and characters found on America’s back roads and Marty’s depictions of the Lakota people in South Dakota. More than 60 photographs are represented in the exhibit.

In summarizing this body of work, Marty says, “The fierce spirit of individualism is the common bond that unites the masters of country music, the characters from the blue line roads of America and the Native Americans who live in the shadow of the Badlands.”

You can see Marty’s work through Nov. 2, 2014. For more information on the exhibit, visit the Frist Center website.
