Company H. and Watkins College of Art, Design & Film present:
Seven Types of PlayApril 5th, 6-9pm, at WAG in the ArcadeNashville Art Crawl
The show’s concept was guided by notion of “play,” specifically through the National Institute for Play’s delineation of seven distinct types: Attunement, Body, Object, Social, Imaginative, Narrative and Transformative. With each artist creating within one type of play, rules operated in place of theme as a structuring element and built continuity through the very act of making.
The seven participating artists, all council members of Co. H, are:• Mika Agari (Fine Art), object play • David Anderson (Fine Art), transformative play • Aaron Harper (Fine Art), imaginative play • Blake Holland (The Film School), narrative play • Zack Rafuls (Fine Art), attunement play • Alexine Rioux (Fine Art), body play • Kayla Saito (Fine Art), social play.
Work will include drawing, painting, video, digital prints, sculpture, performance and social practice.

CO. H and the upcoming Seven Types of Play show featured on the Nashville Scene! Thanks for the coverage folks!
“One of the best things about the downtown art crawl is its built-in audience. That’s also the worst part — no matter how mediocre the horse paintings or scrap-metal sculptures are, put it in a gallery on the first Saturday of the month and somebody’s going to show up to look at it. But back to the good: An eager, interested audience is exactly what the doctor ordered for burgeoning artists wanting to test the boundaries of their practice. So Watkins’ WAG (an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery) is a perfect venue for experimenting with an art audience, and Co. H, the artist collective that was founded there in 2011, has a plan to use that to its advantage.”
