The Blue Star Memorial unveiling

On a fair and sunny November day, almost 100 people gathered together on the courthouse lawn to dedicate a new memorial honoring all those who have served, are serving, and will serve in Armed Forces of the United States.

The project was made possible by donations from the members of the Beachaven Garden Club, the Clarksville Garden Club, and the Les Candides Garden Club. “We want to show our deep support and appreciation of those who have defended our freedom in the past, those who are at great risk in defending us today, and those who may do so in the future.”

APSU Pianist Presents Music Composed in the Shadow of Great Wars

 

Austin Peay State University LogoAbout 37 million people, both soldiers and civilians, died during the First World War. More than 60 million lost their lives two decades later during World War II. These two cataclysmic events, which defined and shaped the 20th century, erased families that had existed for centuries and nearly caused two generations of young men to all but disappear.

The two wars cast a long shadow over those who survived. It changed who they were and how they saw the world. For two composers, the Hungarian Bela Bartok and the Russian Dmitri Shostakovich, the horrific times also forever transformed the music they created.

“They were very affected by what’s going on, and it was coming out in their music,” Dr. Jeffrey Wood, Austin Peay State University professor of music, said. “They’re violent pieces. They’re aggressive to the point of almost being primitive, barbaric. I sense the war very close to the surface.” «Read the rest of this article»

Checkup time as Lady Govs host Cumberland in only preseason test

 

apsugovernorsTwenty-Four practice days will be put to the test when Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team hosts Cumberland in a 7 p.m., Monday, preseason contest at the Dunn Center.

Austin Peay returns four starters and 10 letterwinners from last season’s team that posted a 17-16 overall record but won the Ohio Valley Conference tournament and advanced to the NCAA Tournament. However, the Lady Govs will be searching for a replacement at center where April Thomas held court last season.

In addition, Austin Peay will be seeking answers at point guard where redshirt freshman Neika Smith joins the team after missing last season due to an injury. The Lady Govs also will use sophomore Whitney Hanley and junior Brooke Faulkner to run the offense at times.

APSU Artist Greene Opens “Dermabrasion” Exhibit at Trahern Gallery

 

Austin Peay State University LogoWarren Greene, assistant professor of art and Trahern Gallery director at Austin Peay State University, has a conflicted relationship with Tennessee’s rural countryside. Specifically, he’s troubled by the land’s indifferent nature.

“I’m curious about the ideas and emotions this landscape doesn’t care about, but is necessarily shaped by – both literally and figuratively,” he said. “This ambivalence hurts my ego because it ignores the language that it has become in my mind.”

This is what the artist ponders as he touches his brush to a canvas. The works he’s created through this contemplation will be on display this month with the Trahern Gallery’s new show “Dermabrasion: Exhibition of Works by Warren Greene.”
