New APSU exhibit honors legacy of late artist Tom Malone

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The artist Tom Malone, who passed away in 1998, had the uncanny ability to make people think. Coming across one of his celebrated faces in a gallery, viewers would often pause and stare deeply into the eyes. “Who is this woman?” they might ask. Or, “Why do I feel that I know her?”

“The intense styling of the eyes marks a signature style for Malone,” Terri Jordan, a Clarksville artist and exhibits curator for the Customs House Museum, said. “His faces look back at the viewer, unapologetic and familiar. Whether simple line drawings or vivid impressionistic pastels, each face Malone drew leaves the onlooker curious to learn her secrets…and that is talent.”

“FACES: A Tom Malone Retrospective” exhibit honoring the late artist Tom Malone opens at Austin Peay on May 11th.
