APSU Department of Art - Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Inviting museum-goers to use their ears as much as their eyes is quickly gaining traction in the art community. Much like using color on a physical canvas, sound artists use the noises that exist around us to fill space and grab the attention of the listener in a way no different than a sculpture, painting or mosaic.

Students at Austin Peay State University, as well as the community at large, will have an opportunity to explore this branch of contemporary art when the APSU Department of Art presents “SOUND”, an exhibition of sound art held at the APSU Trahern Gallery from January 20th-February 6th.

What I found was a diverse but interesting array of entries in the free show at the Trahern Gallery. Ranging from the massive and powerful sculpture of Olen Bryant to the thought-provoking statement art of Department Chair Gregg Schlanger to the intricate linocut of Jesse Shaw, I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings with which faculty members stimulate the minds of art students to provoke their creativity.

Photographer Arno Minkkinen showcased a lifetime of his work in a lecture at APSU

 

Photographer Arno Rafael Minkkinen came to Austin Peay State University to present a lecture as part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series sponsored by the APSU Department of Art, and the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts. “Art is Risk Made Visible” began his presentation. The standing room only lecture featured around 300 slides that he used to highlight his nearly 40 year career. He was introduced by APSU Professor of Photography, Susan Bryant.

Minkkinen has a enduring love for the ruggedness of the human body, which he frequently contrasts nude against the unspoiled beauty of the natural world. His photographs make use of natural lighting and shadows with the deft touch of a Renaissance painter. However he also possesses the skill of a master magician who never reveals his tricks; as he eschews any kind of artificial manipulation in his photographs including the use of assistants, “Make them single negatives: This means no manipulation of any kind.”
