Ev Niewoehner :: A Musically Inspired Painter

Dancing Congas, 36 x 36
Last weekend during the June Gallery Crawl in Downtown Nashville I met Ev Niewoehner at The Tennessee Art League. A talented and charming man, he shared with me how he started the artist group, Studio A Artists, that shows work on the 2nd floor of the TAL building. He is an incredible artist and truly music inspired!

Ev was born in rural Iowa and at age ten moved with his family to Colorado. He graduated from Fort Collins High School and later earned history degrees from Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado. He also studied art at several universities. After teaching at the high school level for four years, he owned and operated an art gallery in Los Angeles. Teaching opportunities brought him to Tennessee where he taught for twenty one years.

In 1999, Niewoehner retired from teaching which allowed him to concentrate on his first love, oil painting, an activity at which he is working full time. Although working with a number of genres, it has been the subject of music which has dominated the bulk of his body of work. Niewoehner has exhibited in a number of galleries and art centers in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Nashville, Memphis, Birmingham, Atlanta, Rome, GA, Estes Park, CO, Fairhope, AL, and Dickson, TN, where he maintains his studio and home.
