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.
