Everybody’s talking about it: there was a couple standing in front of the mall with signs today; people were stopping to give them water, food, and even money—can you believe it? One lady even stopped to take their picture.

Publix is Definitely a Food Wonderland

 

Clarksville, TN – I walked into the new Publix store on Madison Street on Saturday morning and felt like I had entered a wonderland of food. Everywhere I looked was a colorful display of items I’d love to take home with me.

As Ashley Jones, a customer in the store expressed her feelings, “I’ve never been here before and I’m already in love! The vegetarian and international sections are fabulous. I’m a vegan so Walmart isn’t really my friend!”

As you enter the store, the first area you see is the florist. Bouquets of cut flowers, pots of blossoming tulips and hydrangeas, arrangements of everything from roses to chrysanthemums! Fragrant flowers to start your day with pleasure were everywhere. Reasonable prices like a pot of tulips for $5.99 suited my wallet and my sense of cheer at the thought of Spring just around the corner.

Store manager Norman Rubio Jr. gives a young patron a flower as she enters the store during the grand opening of the Publix store.

Unique Susan Tomi McGolrik’s artwork remains on display at Ingredients

Artist Susan Tomi McGolrick

???Learning Gyotaku printing seemed to be the natural path to take as an artist because I have spent the summer after graduating from Austin Peay University camping and fishing. I rediscovered how much I enjoy fishing at Land between the Lakes a place that conveniently close and with abundant fish.

Gyotaku is a traditional form of Japanese fish printing dating from the mid 1800’s It was used as a way to record ones fish catch by fisherman who wanted to produce proof of their specimens in the days before cameras. I guess you could say that even way back then to a fisherman your catch is just a fish story unless you can produce a image. All of the Gyotaku prints are unique in that it is impossible to make an exact duplicate even using the same fish. The authentic use of real fish is proven with just one sniff of my rice paper prints. Since I use non-toxic inks, the fish end up on our dinner plates, giving their lives to both art and sustenance.
