New Year, New Lesson Plans!

ARTifacts, Art & Antique EmporiumJunk!  I love it!  So when my sister, Paige, suggested that we take the 2nd floor of her historic downtown building and turn it into an antique store I thought, “FUN!”   Then she said, “What about local art and antiques?”  Very cool idea, no?  We were huge fans of the shop local, live local campaigns sweeping the nation, even before it was hip.  It was a great plan.  She is the business mind, has the property just begging for something fun to be done with the space, and I needed a job!  PERFECT!

So, we got to work.  3 years later, here we are and I have learned so much about how to manage a business with over 40 art & antique vendors.  But what have I learned about art?  What about antiques?  TONS!  But there is so much still to learn.  Time to be a student again. «Read the rest of this article»

ARTifacts, Art & Antique EmporiumARTifacts Emporium is featuring the artistry of Rachel Ison & Patty Stinnett.  When asked about her jewelry, Rachel Ison says, “I enjoy working with a variety of mediums my favorite, by far, is wire.  Bending, shaping and showcasing stones with wire to create one-of-a kind pieces adds to the happiness of my life.

Patty says, “Decorating at our home has always involved using antiques and vintage items. Family influence could be a factor in my choices for my parents and grandparents also appreciated and used vintage things. Now that I have retired from teaching I have time to try a new venture of selling some of the things I have found in my treasure hunts.” «Read the rest of this article»

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»

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»
