Japanese artist returns to APSU to see lost painting

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On a recent spring afternoon, Takuya Kanemitsu, a Tokyo-based artist and art professor, wandered through the Austin Peay State University Browning Building, looking for one of his paintings.

He finally found the massive, six-foot wide canvas on a wall next to the President’s Office, and Kanemitsu spent several quiet minutes that day reconnecting with the image of a pensive young woman surrounded by books.

“I was interested in the rhythm of the books,” he said, moving his hand slowly in front of the painting. “The composition, I thought, was interesting.”

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Clarksville and Montgomery County are no strangers to severe weather, as flood, thunderstorm and tornado warnings are common occurrences in the lives of its citizens.

It is for just that reason that Austin Peay State University’s emergency team has consistently reacted quickly to alert the campus community to any potential danger.

Austin Peay State University graduate Conor Scruton to study poetry at summer house of Robert Frost

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – A small, white house located on a farm in New Hampshire, the property now known as The Frost Place served as American poet Robert Frost’s summer home from 1915 through 1938.

It was on that humble plot of land where Frost formed many of the poems that would eventually earn him, among other honors, a Congressional Gold Medal and four Pulitzer Prizes. In 1977, 14 years after his death, the farmhouse was transformed into The Frost Place and became a retreat for emerging American poets.
