Taking a walk downtown at June’s First Thursday Art Walk


The First Thursday Art Walk was held on June 4th. Downtown businesses features work created by local artists and offer wine and other tempting treats for the Art Walkers.

downtown-logoPaige King’s Hodgepodge featured the ethereal art by Susan Tomi Cheek. Her pictures, many of them made by using a double exposure, held a haunting sense of the otherworld. One particular picture evoked the image of the tunnel and light that many people claim they see during near death experiences with the soul caught half way between life and death.  Susan has a different perspective on the world, and that allows her to capture images that other artists would find hard to duplicate.

Susan is the official photographer for  the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts (CECA) events. It was also my distinct pleasure to meet one of her daughters, Cherish.

This is important to good government, and it’s important to Tennesseans. I urge the House to take it up this session.
