Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – Nashville artist Peach McComb brings the outdoors in with her current exhibit at the Customs House Museum. Painting in a broad range of subjects, Peach works in both impressionistic and representational styles.

Referring to art as “yoga for the mind”, she says “I practice yoga for physical flexibility and art for mental agility.”

In works such as Ginny’s Front Porch the artist provides the viewer with a real sense of Southern Americana with the iconic flag floating in the breeze alongside hidden wicker chairs. Paintings like Shore Patrol move us from rural Tennessee to the summer shores in soft blues and whites.

The works in McComb’s suite seem to be themed in days of leisure, providing the art lover with a calm sense of beauty.
