An exhibit catalog chronicling the creativity and skill of Kentucky artist, Tim Lewis, has earned a first place award from the Tennessee Association of Museums (TAM). BLF Marketing and The Customs House Museum of Clarksville, Tenn., produced the 64-page publication entitled Time Made Real: The Carvings of Tim Lewis. Frank Lott and Ron Watson of BLF Marketing co-designed the award-winning catalog, which features a collection of Lewis’ works and essays exhibited at Customs House Museum during 2008.
The Lewis publication is the third exhibit catalog produced by BLF Marketing and Customs House Museum to win top TAM honors. The catalog Olen Bryant: A Retrospective Reelfoot Lake: Tradition, Mystery & Lore won the top award in 2006.
TAM awards are intended to recognize, encourage, and promote excellence within the Tennessee museum community. The Lewis catalog won in the category of publications produced by medium-sized museums. Factors considered by TAM included content, design, writing, art/photos, appeal, quality, concept, originality and successfulness, as measured in published reviews or other documentation.
Lewis’ woodcarvings and stone sculptures have made him one of Kentucky’s most celebrated folk artists. The Folk Art Society of America named Lewis their Artist of the Year in 2007.
The Customs House Museum is located in Clarksville’s historic downtown district, and is the second largest general museum in Tennessee.
