Take a Peek Inside Tim Yanke’s Monthaven Arts Exhibition
Is it a coincidence that Nashville, a city known for its vibrancy, music, and southern culture, is the place where Tim Yanke opened his first museum exhibition? The artist doesn’t think so.
“Being in Nashville is a perfect fit—the boot scene, the live music scene, the vibrancy of the music scene, totally coincides with my paintings,” Yanke says.
The Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center in Hendersonville, Tennessee (just outside of Nashville) hosted “Tim Yanke: Abstract Musings,” a solo exhibition featuring more than 40 of Yanke’s brilliant abstract paintings.

Known for his distinct “Neo-West” style, Yanke incorporates his love for the American West into his paintings with iconography and symbolism. He often listens to music while creating, letting the songs dictate the rhythm and colors of his paintings.
The Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center worked with Yanke for just over a year to curate the show. The center praises Yanke’s paintings as “music for the eyes.”
“We’re so honored here at the MACC to have the work of Tim Yanke, his abstracts are just wonderful,” says Cheryl Strichik, executive director of the Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center.
Aside from his paintings, Yanke works in multiple mediums, including lenticulars, giclées, and dye sublimation. He applies his signature style to various objects, ranging from vinyl records to long planks of wood.
“Abstract Musings” is sponsored by the Park West Foundation. Director Diane Pandolfi said the foundation is proud to sponsor exhibitions that help spark an interest in art.
“We are a resource for museums who, without our help, would not be able to host these exhibitions,” Pandolfi says. “The bottom line is we bring art to people all across the country.”
