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.”
