First Thursday ArtWalk – November 5th


Historic Downtown Clarksville You’re invited to join the merchants of Historic Downtown Clarksville for The monthly Art Walk, on November 5th from 5 – 8 p.m. Kendall Welsh from ARTifacts sent us this information about November’s artistic extravaganza.

Opening at the Downtown Artist Co-op is Cliff Whitakers new show “Visions of My World”. The show opens Thursday, November 5 with a reception from 5-8 p.m. It will be on exhibit in the gallery until 28 November. Cliff Whittaker is a photographic artist who specializes in mid-19th century-style impressionist images. He has studied and been influenced by the French Impressionist works of artists such as Manet, Pissaro, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh and others of that period. His work is often mistaken initially as oil on canvas painting.

His work involves every day activities along Franklin Street and inside businesses such as Hodgepodge, Blondie’s, Front Page Deli and Blackhorse Pub. Cliff says that his art is more like that of a contemporary historian in that his candid images show people and places as they are in that instant. And, maybe some time in the future people will look back at those images and remember their own impression of “the good ol’ days.”

ARTifacts will feature the booths of Ashley Richardson, John Glass & Ginger Murvey-Beirus. «Read the rest of this article»

Meet the new ball coach


utfootballIt was easy to forget prior to kick-off a football game was being played on Halloween night. Not only was Lane Kiffin keeping in the headlines with his comments regarding the officiating at the Alabama game, the fan base was distracting itself with a fashion controversy. Were the Vols going to appear in black jerseys? More importantly, should they? After all, black is not a traditional Tennessee color, and UT is nothing if not a school grounded in tradition.

Another UT tradition is losing to Steve Spurrier. Stretching back to his first job as a head coach at Duke, the Vols have a 5-13 record against him. Philip Fulmer had a particularly dismal 3-8 record against the Old Ball Coach.

Old Ball Coach, meet the New Ball Coach. «Read the rest of this article»

Austin Peay State University LogoHusband and wife artists Gregg Schlanger and Monica Quattrochio, troubled by what a billion Third World inhabitants must drink to survive, are opening a new installation and exhibit at the Twist Art Gallery in Nashville that deals specifically with water.

“Water is a symbol of life, fertility, purification and healing,” Quattrochio, an APSU alumna and fine arts photographer, said. “It can evoke feelings of calmness and serenity but also conjure up strength and power.”

The exhibit, which opens Nov. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. and runs through Nov. 28, will feature literal and abstract photographs by Quattrochio and a public installation by Schlanger, a professor and chair of the APSU Department of Art.
