Crystal Trunk Show and Psychic Readings!

Art & Invention Gallery
September 29 – October 2nd, 2016

It doesn’t matter whether you think of crystals as simply one of nature’s many unique creations, or you believe them to be actual tools that help us navigate the frequencies of a changing planet. What matters is that you enjoy their beauty, and find the ones that speak to your heart.

Art & Invention will be hosting a special Crystal & Gem Trunk Show Thursday, September 29, 2016 – Sunday, October 2, 2016. We have been collecting beautiful crystal specimens for months, and can’t wait for you to experience them!

bonnieAnd to make it more fun, internationally recognized psychic medium, Bonni McCliss, will be joining us for the weekend! She and her guides will be available to answer individual questions about your life and your soul’s journey. Bonni is also able communicate with your crystals, unlocking the information stored within, and the healing they bring to your mind, body, and spirit!

The cost for readings with Bonni is $50.00 per half hour. Send an email to meg@artandinvention.com, or call 615.226.2070 to book your reading.

…And, just when you thought it couldn’t be any more fun, it gets better!

geode2Dottie, our neighbor at Red Dog Beads, is hosting a geode slicing day on Saturday, October 1, from noon – 4:00pm. She has hundreds of geodes from Kentucky, and for $12.00 you can choose your favorite and she will slice it open for you. Will it have crystals inside? Or fossils? Will it be solid or hollow inside? …Come choose one and find out!

RED DOG BEADS is located at The Idea Hatchery next door to Art & Invention. If you have questions about the geodes, call 615.530.1074, or email DLandry588@aol.com

Call to Artists for the 13th Annual Tomato Art Show!

~~~ Artist Application ~~~

Once again, the time has come to pay homage to that fabulous vegetable/fruit, the TOMATO!

This year is the Tomato Art Fest’s 13th year anniversary, and we plan to astound the tomato loving world with our Tomato Art Show in East Nashville, Tennessee! To do this, we need your help…

Please help us celebrate the tomato by saying, “Yes – I want to make tomato art!

The 13th annual Tomato Art Fest is set for August 13, 2016. Last year the festival drew nearly 50,000 people to East Nashville, and we always seem to always garner plenty of national attention along with bringing in the locals.

We hope that you will be compelled to create tomato-inspired artwork to fill the walls of our gallery and add another level of greatness to this already remarkable event.
