“Preserve & Protect” – a new exhibit at The New Gallery in the APSU Art + Design building – looks at the complex ways in which textiles, particularly garments, relay the resilience of a culture – worn for protection but also as a way to project one’s identity. These textiles have the power to preserve but also rewrite cultural history.

Artists in the exhibit include Anangookwe Wolf, Paul Rucker, Winnie van der Rijn, Michael Sylvan Robinson, and Stephanie Syjuco.

This week, Rucker will talk about his work on November 9th via Zoom at 6:00pm. Registration for the live-streaming event can be found here at www.bitly.com/PaulRucker.

This exhibition – which is co-curated by Michael Dickins, Austin Peay State University’s director of galleries, and Erika Diamond, assistant director of CVA galleries at Chautauqua Institution – also will be open during the next Clarksville First Thursday Art Walk on December 2nd from 5:00pm until 7:30pm.

The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public.

A virtual tour of the exhibition is available at www.apsu.edu/art-design/thenewgallery.

Hours for The New Gallery are Monday through Friday from 9:00am until 4:00pm, closed on weekends and holidays, and follow the university’s academic calendar.
