Austin Peay Art Graduates exhibit new work at Downtown Gallery

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Shortly after Clare Coyle Taylor’s husband passed away, she gathered her children together and began creating works of art with them. She’d studied at Austin Peay State University, earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in pottery/ceramic sculpture and painting, but in the years after she graduated, she gradually found less time to practice her art.

Then, following her husband’s death, the act of creating took on a new meaning for her.

“I’ve become even more aware of, and awed by, the healing nature of the process,” she said. “There can be a catharsis about the expression and introspection achieved with color, mark making, and material manipulation. Emotions can be released where there are no words.” «Read the rest of this article»

Ceramic Artist Rose Visits APSU for Artist Lecture Series on October 12th

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – The bird, perched on the rim of a cup, was smooth, and in the right light, gave off a greenish sheen. It was beautiful, but it looked unlike any bird in existence. 

That’s because the animal, in spite of all its elaborate detail, was not real. It was a work of art. The great ceramicist Peter Rose used thrown and press molded pieces of clay to create the ornate bird. At 7:00pm on October 12th, he’ll visit Austin Peay State University’s Trahern Building to give a talk about his craft as part of the APSU Artist Lecture Series. The series, sponsored by the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, brings renowned artists to campus to discuss their work with students and the community. «Read the rest of this article»
