DAC will host its February ArtWalk Thursday, Feb. 5, from 5-8 p.m. Cliff Whittaker comments on the current exhibit:
A new and exciting perspective on photography is about to be presented at the Downtown Artists Co-op located at 96 Franklin St. in beautiful downtown Clarksville. In fact, that’s what it’s called: An Alternative Perspective. And, it features the work of long-time and highly respected DAC member Beverly Parker.
Beverly has developed a technique of manipulating original Polaroid images into scenes of artistic beauty and wonder. She punches, scrunches and squiggles the emulsion of the original Polaroid photograph and then adds bits and pieces of images and 3-D items to enhance the effect. There is more, but I’m not going to give away all of the secrets of the process. You will have to come to the Downtown Artists Co-op gallery located at 96 Franklin St. to view the finished results. «Read the rest of this article»

For a decade the nation’s truckers have recognized the volunteer state as one of the top five roadway systems in the country and for the past two years I-40 in Tennessee has been recognized as the best segment of roadway in the nation. That is a major vote of confidence in our transportation network, considering the fact that freight systems in the U.S. transported approximately $15 billion in goods in 2005, nearly 80 percent of which moved by trucks on the roads.
Bears do it. Bees do it. Bats do it. And snakes do it.
So why can’t parents of toddlers do it?
I’m talking about hibernating that is.
When Elle-Girl was about eight-months-old I read in one of those parenting magazines that the average age for a child to sleep through the night is six months. I thought to myself that this must have been an isolated study, because my child had never slept through the night. Not once! To prevent ourselves from being total zombies my husband and I committed the “number one cardinal sin of parenting” and we brought our little pink bundle of baby in bed with us. She slept (kinda), my husband slept, and I slept every couple of hours between Elle-Girl waking up to nurse. It worked for us. Everyone was happy. «Read the rest of this article»
