Clarksville Area Chamber of CommerceClarksville, TN – The Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce presents artist Miranda Herrick as the speaker at its Women in Business luncheon on Tuesday, October 11th. The event begins at 11:30am and will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 290 Alfred Thun Road.

Herrick was born in Vicenza, Italy in 1977. Her father’s military career took her family many places before they settled in Clarksville in the early 1990’s.

Herrick graduated from Austin Peay State University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Fine Art, concentrating in drawing and ceramics. She currently lives in Clarksville and works in Nashville.

Herrick’s drawings tend to be very structured geometric patterns. These drawings begin with penciled grid lines and grow out with repetitive, pen-and-ink line work which is done freehand. The process is meditative in nature.

Subdividing the space on a sheet of paper with pen marks has evolved into recycling post-consumer aluminum cans to fill in blocks of color on a wooden panel. The shift in materials allows Herrick to create larger designs and gives the shapes and colors a subtext.

A careful observer can discover what product these aluminum cans carried before they were re-purposed. A thoughtful environmentalist might be made uncomfortable anew with the evidence of accumulation in the repetition of the pieces.

Her “uncanny craft” was featured on Tennessee Crossroads June 2nd. Cost is $30.00 for Chamber members and $35.00 for non-members.

Individuals may register online at www.clarksvillechamber.com or send an RSVP with credit card payment to Lucian Greene via email at Lucian@clarksville.tn.us by Thursday, October 6th, 2016.
