Hook Rugs Showcase the Joy of the Ocean

Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – The Customs House Museum and the Clarksville-Montgomery County Arts and Heritage Development Council will present this April a national traveling exhibit of 12 works by fiber artists, including a piece by Clarksvillian Tamara Long.

Inspired by the last line of the poem “Sea Joy” by Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, “Oh—To live by the sea is my only wish,” these works range from traditional representations of lobster shacks, fishing boats, sea gulls and beach vacations to more abstract representations of sea, sky, shells and sand.
Since she lives in land-locked Tennessee, Long’s hooked rug is a collage of images from her vacations by the sea.
