Clarksville’s Customs House Museum now showing Wild Ones exhibit

Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – Cindy Billingsley is one of those few artists that both sculpts and paints. A traditional fine artist of more than thirty years, she is able to merge her passion for wildlife conservation and art.

Her newest exhibit titled Wild Ones at the Customs House Museum creates another chance to bring awareness to the plight of wild animals.

Cindy says of her work “I wanted to do art around endangered animals to start a dialog, to connect, to get people to understand what it is like for an animal trying to live and survive in this world. To know that they can’t always protect themselves and it is up to us to help provide a safe habitat, so future generations can see the beautiful face of a panda, and that newborn pandas continue to be brought into the world. I speak through paint and clay. I want you to see the sheer beauty of all the animals and tiniest creatures we are blessed to have on this wonderful planet of ours”.

As well as exhibiting in solo and group shows throughout the U.S., Cindy has participated in public art projects such as the Memorial Portrait mural of Brentwood Library, Sept 2011, the 7 Horse Jumps for World Equestrian Games Lexington, KY, 2010, Arrington Firefighter Memorial, Bronze Relief, TN, 2003, and  the Warner Park nature Center 5 bronze sculptures, 1999. Her work has been featured in the publication CeramicsNow Magazine.

In conjunction with the exhibit, Cindy will be doing a special “Family Day” event.
