Art - Ongoing

There are 4 comments on the Nashville Scene story from Jul 8, 2009, titled Art - Ongoing. In it, Nashville Scene reports that:

Painter Donny Smutz makes art that is full of contradictions. He is a Midwesterner whose work reflects on American culture, but he favors sardonic satire over patriotic praise.

I went the closing at Tinney Contemporary and checked out what all the buzz was about with Donny Smutz. It was sick! I don't know what he was smokin but the Obama painting was crazy! If Donny doesn't get killed first, he'll be famous sooner than later.

Talk about controversy! Donny knows how to push buttons. I went to the opening and overheard many outraged people discussing the reasons why Smutz would depict Obama on the cross. I love it! Nashville needs this kind of thinking if they want to try to be competitors with the art mecca's of the world.

Keep it coming!

I can't image there being more than one Donny Smutz but is this the same artist who's painting got slashed a year ago by some drunk guy at an art show in Nashville because it was too religious?
What the hell?! I can't believe I missed the show. I heard his work is like no other.

Donny Smutz is my favorite artist!! Where does he come up with this shit?! I saw his stuff at a coffee shop three years ago. I should have bought a piece then.
Does anyone know how to get a hold of him? He have a website? Maybe, ?
Thanks for the post!
