DAC to host membership exhibit

Do you like your art in bunches like grapes? If you do, then the Downtown Artists Co-op (DAC), located at 96 Franklin St. in downtown Clarksville is the place to be this Thursday, June 5th, from 5 – 8 p.m.

The Seventh Annual DAC Membership Exhibit opens at that time with “bunches” of art from many of the area’s most accomplished artists. This will be an excellent opportunity to enjoy food and drink at the DAC opening reception, mingle with fellow art lovers and talk with many of the artists who will be present.

The Downtown Artists Co-op is proud to claim many of the area’s best know artists as members. Several of these members have earned recognition on the state, regional and national level. Some are members of the Tennessee Art League and/or The Tennessee Watercolor Society. At least two DAC members are spouses of soldiers.

Twenty of these DAC artists will be exhibiting more than 40 of their current works of all types of painting, mixed media, photography and collage.
