Modfellows in located near the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere. The gallery will show many types of art including paintings, photography, sculptures, ceramics and glass. Owners, Rich & Julie Modica have both had long careers outside of the art world, Rich in music and Julie in marketing. Rich has traveled the world as a tour/production manager for artists Dwight Yoakam, Morrissey, Jakob Dylan, Brian Setzer to name a few. But, both share a passion for art, design, vintage & collectibles - including mid century furniture, art, ceramics and glass. They’ve have spent many years collecting and educating themselves on art/artists, designers & makers.
On a recent road trip, to drop their son at Camp Woodward (for skateboarding) in Western Pennsylvania, the Modica’s made a stop at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. Long-time fans, they saw all of the collection’s Warhol amassed mixed with his art in all mediums, film, drawings, paintings, silkscreens and they were completely inspired to make a career change and work on a gallery. The gallery is to present art that excites, moves, inspires. They believe art needs to make you feel something, a reaction, love it or hate it, you need to feel it. It shouldn’t be something you buy to just to match your sofa or the color palette of your home.
