Customs House Museum to host Women’s History Month Exhibit

 

The Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – The Customs House Museum unveils its third annual Women’s History Month exhibition on March First with the Ladies First. This two-fold exhibit features beautiful vintage clothing and accessories from the museum collection, enhanced by works of Tennessee women artists. Each work of art is a self portrait symbolizing where the women see themselves as a female and artist at this moment of time.

The artists include women ranging from art students to nationally known professionals. Curator Terri Jordan states, “Last year, we brought in very talented contemporary artists and let them select the pieces they wanted to exhibit. The result was a very cohesive presentation of two and three dimensional works, many dealing with social issues of our time. This year, I wanted to create a more personal and intimate exhibit. These women run the gamut of ages and styles, but will be creating under a common theme.”

Underground 9 exhibits at the Poston Gallery

 

talNashville, TN – A rogue group of artists, The Underground 9, present their themed exhibit, Sanctuary, at the Tennessee Art League’s Poston Gallery during the month of December. An opening reception with the artists will take place Saturday, December 5th, as part of the Nashville Gallery Crawl.

Terri Jordan, founder of the Underground 9 says “the group is a gathering of creative spirits who not only want to exhibit their art, but also to give back to the community.” While there is a core group of members, the participating artists in each show will change. The 9 invite a select number of artists from the host city to exhibit with them each time. Jordan states that the unique things about the Underground 9 are that each show will have a central theme and the group donates of a portion of sales to a local cause. For the Nashville show that cause is the Tennessee Art League’s community outreach programs.
