Small Town, Big Mural

Nashville Arts Magazine Cover February 2014Brian Tull and his wife, Laura, recently completed this 20’ x 45’ mural on a historic building that was once the Brevard Lumber Company. Within walking distance of downtown Brevard, North Carolina, the long-vacant site is being transformed into an arts district, thanks to the efforts of investor Josh Leder, neighboring Haen Gallery, and the community.

It is the intent to preserve the lumberyard and the area where trains once picked up passengers and freight, and Brian wanted to tie together the historic function of the building and art. “My artwork is nostalgic, and I wanted to portray a hardworking industrial guy reflecting on his work.”

Tull is represented by Haen Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina, and Tinney Contemporary in Nashville. To see more of his work, visit www.briantull.com and www.tinneycontemporary.com. To learn more about the Brevard Lumber Yard Arts District, visit www.brevardlumberyard.com.
