I wrote about Herb Williams' collaboration with OZ Nashville's TNT series for this week's Scene, but if you didn't catch the opening last night, you're out of luck: Personal Best was a one-night-only affair. I left too early to hear Moon Taxi's set — I had to rush to Light + Sound Machine's screening of Kenneth Anger films over at Third Man — but stayed long enough to pick a few favorite artworks.

I'm not always crazy about Williams' crayon work — the guitar-shaped sculptures like the ones he had on display last night are, frankly, pretty corny — but the dramatic theater lighting that he utilized was perfect for them, and made me realize that the more over-the-top his work gets, the more I like it.

Look through some more examples of this well-lit work, including a print from a Keith Haring exhibit that was an early crowd favorite, after the jump.
