The Hamilton Bank of Rossville, built sometime before 1940, will be the new American home base for my wife, Melissa Hefferlin, my son Timur Akhriev and myself. Heidi Hefferlin of HK Architects is watching over our efforts. I designed a new front door which was cut out of sheet steel, fabricated by Nathan and Wade at Set in Stone. Timur is painting the walls while I create mosaics for the entrance. The building has a new roof, which gives us time to proceed with repairs more leisurely. Here are some progress photos. You can click on the photos for more detail.
I’m happy to be one of six artist showing mosaics at the Nashville airport for six months. There’s a reception on the 8th of April. If you’d enjoy attending, we’d be glad to have you! Let me know, though, since you must pre-register by the 3rd of April with TSA.
