It Could Be So Simple

Blend Studio Hosts “It Could Be So Simple” Illustrations By Xavier Payne

Blend Studio in Nashville’s Downtown Arcade will exhibit Nashville based illustrator and designer Xavier Payne’s “It Could Be So Simple”. The month long exhibit features over 30 illustrations, t-shirts, and the premier of his first illustrative compilation book, “It Could Be So Simple”.

The artist will be available on the opening night of the First Saturday Art Crawl.

Xavier states, “My attempts to highlight the essence of my favorite things have shown me how similar I am to everyone around me. Since I am not so different from you, I imagine that you have fears, doubts, anxieties, long days, and things of the like. These layers tend to complicate life of course, but things could be so much simpler if you put them in a certain perspective. I try to show that, visually.”
Blend Studio is Located on the second floor of the historic Arcade building and in the heart of the gallery district in downtown Nashville. Blend Studio offers a diverse range of contemporary art and unique opportunities for artists to merge with the community. They are open from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM on Friday and Saturday, and by appointment.
