Wrapping up Clarksville’s 2014 Rivers and Spires Festival

 

Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – The last day of the 2014 Rivers and Spires Festival continued to be the best in memory. The weather was absolutely flawless, neither too hot nor to cold. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky throughout the entire day.

I rushed down to the Festival at 9:00am to catch the annual WJZM 1400 AM Clarksville in Review broadcast from the Festival. This usually is held at the Bill Roberts thunder road automotive tent on Franklin Street just down from the Roxy Regional Theatre. The program was already well underway when I arrived.

Clarksville’s Customs House Museum and Cultural Center hosting Family Ties exhibit by Sher Fick in the Bruner Gallery

 

Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – The Bruner Gallery of the Customs House Museum greets visitors with a series of suspended “straight jackets”. Using vintage fabrics, hospital baby blankets, and a wedding dress as the textiles, these jackets date the phases of a woman’s life.

Surrounding walls at first glance appear to display whimsical pieces of children’s clothes and trinkets housed in floating Petri dishes. The playfulness of objects in Family Ties invites you in but the messages expressed are much deeper, if not much darker.
