“Modern Master” Paintings by Seth Haverkamp
Nashville is white hot. The number of new restaurants is astounding. The “hip” menu items and artisanal cocktails that populate the landscape seem to favor a revival of the classics. Greens, carrots, and the humble chicken. These are the stars for which I will endure a 5:45 reservation.
Last night, I tried “Adele’s by Jonathan Waxman” on McGavock Street. Go.
An appreciation for skill and mastery extends to more than cooking. One of Nashville’s TREASURES is the Haynes Galleries which offers the finest and most carefully curated selection of realism paintings in the country. I could feature 20 of their artists in this post, but since I had to choose one, I bring you Seth Haverkamp.

woow. i love it it’s absolutely amazing. i love it!
Love the work – just look at all the colors expressed in the skin tones of the child with the twig crown – I could look at this painting for hours. Beautiful work. So lucky to be a quick drive from the Haynes Gallery – Nashville.
Betsy, thank you for featuring Seth’s work. He studied with Nelson Shanks, founder of Studio Incamminati and painter of the portraits of President Clinton, Diana, Princess of Wales and Pope John Paul II. Seth is on his way to being a sought after painter and portrait artist. He was featured in a solo show at Haynes Galleries at the Music Row Roundabout location this spring. The show has traveled to the gallery’s Thomaston, Maine location where it opens this Friday, June 27 with a reception from 5 to 7:30 pm. The reception is open to the public. The shows runs through July 26. Thomaston is located in the midcoast of Maine about 75 miles north of Portland.
Thank you Betsy. These paintings are stunning and I love the work.
