Murals, sculptures, fountains, and flames are among the art pieces you’ll see showcased along city streets, urban trails, buildings and throughout the campus of Austin Peay State University, which is adjacent to downtown. Many of the works were designed or created by Clarksville artists.

Former APSU Art Professor Schlanger to Have Work on Display at University

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – For 19 years, Gregg Schlanger sauntered across the Austin Peay State University campus wearing a blazer, an untucked shirt and a ball cap pushed back on his head. He’d stop the students, faculty and staff members who crossed his path to make a joke or tease them affectionately.

He was unassuming and relaxed, but for those who knew him, he was a deeply serious artist whose work brought light to important social issues, such as the availability of drinking water in Third World nations. Earlier this summer, Schlanger ended his long tenure at APSU as professor and interim chair of the art department in order to head up the art program at Central Washington University.

Student Created Public Art Piece Now on Display at APSU

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – On that first day, the reactions ranged from laughter to gasps of horror.

“A friend of mine heard screaming when people saw it,” Tobey Lee, an Austin Peay State University art student, said. “It scared them.”

That’s no surprise considering it was a death-defying scene they were witnessing. A painter, dressed in white coveralls, balanced on his toes some 15 feet in the air, to paint a red circle inside the APSU Morgan University Center.

APSU Senior Art Students Exhibit Work this Spring

 

The APSU Department of Art LogoClarksville, TN – Earlier this month, a group of 16 young artists gathered in a classroom on the Austin Peay State University campus while a winter storm dropped two to three inches of snow outside.

Normally, this would be a cause of distraction for the students. They might be expected to gather around the window and wonder if the University was going to close (which it did moments later).

APSU art students will present several art shows and exhibits this spring on campus.

The APSU Department of Art LogoHaving just attended the Alumni Art Show at APSU the week before, I was eager to learn what current faculty members in the Department of Art were working on this year. What I found was a diverse but interesting array of entries in the free show at the Trahern Gallery. Ranging from the massive and powerful sculpture of Olen Bryant to the thought-provoking statement art of Department Chair Gregg Schlanger to the intricate linocut of Jesse Shaw, I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings with which faculty members stimulate the minds of art students to provoke their creativity.
