February’s First Thursday ArtWalk

 

New date: Thursday February 4th, from 5PM TO 8PM

The APSU Downtown Gallery on Strawberry Alley will feature artist Mike Mitchell.  Mitchell, a.k.a. mikewindy, has been known to equate his calling to that of an athlete. The physical exertion required to create a complicated sculpture or painting isn’t all that different than the effort put forth by a baseball or basketball player.

“The moves I make in the studio often feel like the moves I make on a court,” he said in an artist’s statement. “Performing/exhibiting in a square gallery or playing on a rectangular field. Letting the hammer do the work is much like letting the golf club swing itself. Babe Ruth and Pablo Picasso are twin giants separated at birth.”

He went on to receive an M.F.A. from the University of Memphis, but next month he’ll return to Clarksville to exhibit his work in a new show, “Rise and Fall,” at the Austin Peay Downtown Gallery. The show runs from Feb. 4 – 27, with an opening night reception from 5 to 8 p.m. to coincide with the area’s First Thursday Art Walk.

The show will also feature work by Brotherhood of the Harvest, a collaborative sculpture/performance art duo made up of Mitchell and Steve “Uncle Stevo” Marrazzo. «Read the rest of this article»

 

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»

Healing hands of Reiki assist the wounded

 

reiki handsI tripped and fell at work.  I was carrying a box, had to swerve through a narrow area, caught my foot on something and fell.  One second I was upright, the next all my weight landed on my right hand.

It hurt like hell.  Two people came over immediately and asked if I was OK.  I automatically said yes.  The pain was screaming.  Then the middle of my hand went numb; it was a weird sensation.  A man came over (funny guy) and asked if I had been licking frogs that morning.  For me, sarcastic humor is my home base.  Humor brought me back from that place I call being out-of-the-body. «Read the rest of this article»
