First Thursday Art Walk and Wine, hosted by the local businesses in the downtown area,will be held Thursday, August 5 from 5-8 p.m. Businesses stay open late, many host artists and have refreshments.
The Downtown Artists Co-op will host an art talk featuring Betty Liles and Nada Fuqua regarding their Retreat from the Heat show, now hanging at the Downtown Artists Cooperative. They will discuss techniques and inspiration for their paintings and style. Refreshments will be provided. Art talk is from 6 – 8 PM.
Jim Hancock’s photography exhibit is hanging at The Front Page Deli.
Judy Lewis will have her work hanging in Rogate’s Boutique. Judy is an extremely talented artist who recently returned to Clarksville. While she busily restores an older home, she makes time for her commission works of portraits and other studies.
Hodgepodge will continue to host Reisa Peters, with a smattering of Judy Lewis in the Garden Gallery. You’ll also find the amazing jewelry creations of Madge Patton. Madge is no stranger to Clarksville, having participated in several Rivers & Spires events. She started her artistic career in oils, moved to stained glass, and made a turn toward jewelry. She creates what is known at wrapped jewelry. She states, “My next passion turned to lapidary, taking the rough (gem stone rocks) slicing them, and cutting out a design, grinding and polishing into beautiful cabochons that I could wrap, or silversmith.”
Hodgepodge will host Madge for only one evening, so you need to need to get down here on Thursday.
The Roxy is currently hosting a show by Gail Meyers. Gail has several works related to downtown Clarksville, which are always big sellers. There will also be a performance of All Shook Up—call ahead for tickets because this show has been a regular sell-out.
