Clarksville, TN – “I know I have a long ways to go and a lot to learn, but the help is definitely here.”
When the United States and its allies need help, our soldiers answer the call. But when those same men and women need a hand, programs like the Montgomery County Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) exist to make sure they are not alone.

Having just attended the Alumni Art Show at APSU the week before, I was eager to learn what current faculty members in the Department of Art were working on this year. What I found was a diverse but interesting array of entries in the free show at the Trahern Gallery. Ranging from the massive and powerful sculpture of Olen Bryant to the thought-provoking statement art of Department Chair Gregg Schlanger to the intricate linocut of Jesse Shaw, I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings with which faculty members stimulate the minds of art students to provoke their creativity.
Art remains on display for the next two weeks.
Learning Gyotaku printing seemed to be the natural path to take as an artist because I have spent the summer after graduating from Austin Peay University camping and fishing. I rediscovered how much I enjoy fishing at Land between the Lakes a place that conveniently close and with abundant fish.
Gyotaku is a traditional form of Japanese fish printing dating from the mid 1800’s It was used as a way to record ones fish catch by fisherman who wanted to produce proof of their specimens in the days before cameras. I guess you could say that even way back then to a fisherman your catch is just a fish story unless you can produce a image. All of the Gyotaku prints are unique in that it is impossible to make an exact duplicate even using the same fish. The authentic use of real fish is proven with just one sniff of my rice paper prints. Since I use non-toxic inks, the fish end up on our dinner plates, giving their lives to both art and sustenance.
