Clarksville Art Scene Is Alive and Thriving at Riverfest

 

Riverfest 2010A former resident of the Boston and Washington, D.C. areas, I have been fortunate to see some great artworks in my life. I’ve also witnessed the recent “Emperor’s New Clothes” variety (otherwise called “modern art” by some). My feelings towards some of the obscenities fostered on the public in recent years as “art” cannot be printed in this format. One only has to walk through the National Art Gallery where the display is chronological to see how talent somehow was replaced with publicity stunts to see how some artists have sold their souls to pure unadulterated “selling a bill of goods to the unsuspecting” to see what I mean.

APSU’s Downtown Art Gallery opening was the highlight of November’s Art Walk

 

The Austin Peay State University Department of Art working together with the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts (CECA) opened a new art gallery in the heart of historic Downtown Clarksville Thursday evening during the Monthly First Thursday Art Walk.

The new facility provides a much needed exhibition space for APSU faculty and alumni in what has rapidly become the focal point of the Arts community in our town. “It’s a way to help our alumni who are out there trying to build their careers,” said Gregg Schlanger, APSU professor of Art. “It gives them a line on their resume and allows us to brag about our program.”

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»

 

Taking a walk downtown at June’s First Thursday Art Walk

 

The First Thursday Art Walk was held on June 4th. Downtown businesses features work created by local artists and offer wine and other tempting treats for the Art Walkers.

downtown-logoPaige King’s Hodgepodge featured the ethereal art by Susan Tomi Cheek. Her pictures, many of them made by using a double exposure, held a haunting sense of the otherworld. One particular picture evoked the image of the tunnel and light that many people claim they see during near death experiences with the soul caught half way between life and death.  Susan has a different perspective on the world, and that allows her to capture images that other artists would find hard to duplicate.

Susan is the official photographer for  the Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts (CECA) events. It was also my distinct pleasure to meet one of her daughters, Cherish.
