This exhibit features work by Stratford’s diverse body of art students in grades 9 through 12, representing a myriad of social and economic backgrounds. In addition to working with a variety of styles and mediums, students studied art history, criticism, and theory and applied these ideas in their art production. Among the themes presented here are the definition of objective versus nonobjective art, the history and portraiture of Medal of Honor heroes, architectural landscapes of the Nashville skyline, Isaac Newton’s color theory/color wheel, and the definition and application of geometric and organic shapes in nonobjective painting.
Stratford High School is in its fourth year as one of Tennessee’s only STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Magnet High Schools and it is open to all Davidson County students. Stratford’s official zone includes East Nashville neighborhoods bounded by Ellington Parkway, Briley Parkway, and the Cumberland River.

A bohemian/traditional kolache is a Czech/Slovak pastry, similar to a Danish, comprised of a sweet, yeast-based dough with a fruit, poppy seed, or cheese filling.
In the early 1800s, north-central Texas became the new home to many Czech/Slovak immigrants. While these new Texans staked their claim in a new land they continued many of the customs and traditions of their homeland – kolaches being one of them (thankfully!). But they couldn’t leave well enough alone and added their own twist to the recipe, taking the kolache dough and wrapping it around meat (sausage is most common) or stuffing it with a savory filling such as eggs or vegetables, or cheese, and then baking them. While traditionalists will say these aren’t “true” kolaches, we like to call them “Tex-Czech” kolaches!
Over the years, visitors to these small Texas towns couldn’t get enough of these tasty treats and kolache shops began popping up all over the state. Today, kolaches are a breakfast/snack mainstay throughout Texas and, over the last several years, outside of the Lone Star State as well. Yeast Nashville is bringing that tradition to a new home right here in Nashville!
Whether it’s a Bohemian or Tex-Czech, kolaches are a tasty way to start your day and a nice little snack anytime!
