Dane Carder

Dane Carder was born (1972), raised, and still lives in Nashville, in the deep end of the pool of our nation’s history. Carder is a self-taught artist who for the last nine years has utilized Civil War images in a universal, symbolic expression of life’s ironic concoction of tragedy and beauty, despair and hope. He has exhibited in a variety of art spaces, galleries and museums, all the while continually steering the Civil War imagery in new directions
