April Art Walk blends art, antiques, and woodworking

The Downtown Artist’s Co-Operative will host their monthly Art Walk and the 2009 Open Exhibition on April 2 from 5-8 p.m.  in historic downtown Clarksville.

logoThe US Bank and the APSU Department of Art will be hosting the 2009 Open Exhibition for all artists from Montgomery County and surrounding areas.  The reception will be at the DAC Gallery from 5-8 p.m. on April 2nd in conjunction with the First Thursday Artwalk.

The Open Exhibition is an opportunity for all artists over 18 years of age to exhibit and sell their work and help raise money for college art scholarships.  To date thirteen art majors at APSU have received the US Bank Scholarship.  We would like to thank you for your support and encourage your participation in the 2009 Exhibition.

ARTifacts’ featured fine artist is Gail Meyer.  Gail is exploring different styles at the moment and happiest with a paint brush in hand and an expanse of white canvas in front of her. Although, landscapes, still life and figurative art are her main interest, and truly enjoys painting abstracts for a change of pace. Strive for creativity, style and innovation through the use of color, texture and layering.

The featured antique booth is First In, Last Out antiques.

ARTifacts’ featured artisan is Bob Williams is a furniture maker known for his shaker style wood furniture and custom work. His daughter, Jillian Romano, is a local photographer and multimedia artist, will be featuring her scenes from Venice in Bob’s booth, t oo.”

Rhonda Taylor is scheduled to exhibit her photographic art at Rogate’s Boutique.  Ms Taylor’s work is a combination of landscape scenes and nostalgic images in both color and black and white.  A unique feature of Taylor’s work is the large size of some of the photographs she produces and the beautiful tones and color saturation she coaxes from the medium.  Her work will be on exhibit through the entire month of April.

The Roxy Regional Theatre’s Art Walk / Wine Tasting will feature the work of Terri Jordan in the theatre’s Peg Harvill Gallery.  Pieces from Brad Reagan’s 3-Dimensional Design art class at Austin Peay State University will be on display onstage as part of the CATS set.  And, on the sidewalks surrounding the theatre, teams will be recreating various fine art classics in chalk.

And, as always, wine will be available in the lobby, where you may purchase tickets to the upcoming musical phenomenon CATS, opening April 10.

HodgePodge will host Chad Spann and Andy Casali of Tattoo Techniques.  These talented artists take their work beyond the flesh and tattoo ink.  Stop by Hodgepodge to check-out the work of these talented men.

Visions Metaphysical  Boutique  will host Deborah Raleigh-Chandler who works in oils; Afton Chandler, who prefers acrylics; Amanda Harrison, who also works with acrylics; and, Samantha Stephens, whose media is acrylics.  Linda also has a nice selection of hand-crafted jewelry.
