Clarksville, TN – For the last 12 years, Gregory Botts has been criss-crossing the nation with a car loaded full of art supplies, painting the sites and varying light he encountered.
At first begun as a clarification of the larger abstract works that he was making in the studio, these paintings have grown into their own body of impressive works that feed and inform his larger body of work. Austin Peay State University’s Trahern Gallery is proud to host the first large survey of these works in connection with his larger studio paintings this winter, “Gregory Botts: Painting Along the Road.”
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Artist Kay Limirande will show an exhibit of landscapes and nature scenes at the Planters Bank-Hilldale Gallery on Thursday, June 5th – Wednesday, July 2nd.
Lamirande’s exhibit includes scenes from France, Japan, and Colorado, along with a variety of beach scenes in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and drawings.
Combining layers of glaze over layers of patterns and images, Anne creates quilt-like visions, stitching together patterns of bold colors that often feature the human face and words. There is a nostalgic feel to the modern pieces of art. The end result is a lyrical piece of textures that leaves the viewer with a sense of familiarity.

Clarksville, TN – Jennifer Bowman considers herself to be a “self-taught” artist. That is not to say there is anything academic or amateur about her paintings. On the contrary, her abstract landscapes are both earthy and sophisticated.
