CLARKSVILLE, TN – The Department of Artwork + Structure at Austin Peay State University is fired up to announce its 2021-22 time of exhibitions and viewing speakers. Generously supported by the Heart of Excellence for the Inventive Arts (CECA), the Section of Art + Layout can deliver nationally/internationally regarded artists and thinkers immediately to Clarksville with programming that is no cost and open up to the community.
The New Gallery, APSU’s modern artwork gallery, hosts 5 curated exhibitions showcasing modern day art from regional and countrywide artists, as properly as the once-a-year juried university student exhibition each calendar year.
“I say this each yr, but I’m really enthusiastic about this year’s slate of exhibitions and speakers,” reported Michael Dickins, gallery director and Visiting Artist software chair. “We’re starting our fifth 12 months in the new Artwork + Style and design making, and we are continuing to carry environment-course artists right to Austin Peay and the citizens of Clarksville. With invaluable aid from CECA, this pleasure will proceed as The New Gallery will host an exciting exhibition lineup of up to date artists that will obstacle, awe and inspire our learners to drive on their own in their unique tactics. And our Going to Artist Speaker Collection will allow our learners and group to directly interact with the influential artists of our time.”
The New Gallery has extended its availability to give a lot more people a likelihood to see the displays and artists.
“Though the gallery is open up and free to the general public for the duration of the 7 days, many folks come across it tough to go to all through this time,” Dickins mentioned. “Every exhibition this calendar year will be open up during Clarksville’s Initial Thursday Artwork Wander to make the exhibitions additional available to the group. For those people outside of our region, just about every exhibition will be accompanied by a 3D virtual tour, a technologies that we adapted to make our exhibitions accessible through the shutdowns of the pandemic. The digital excursions have been so successful, it would be a disgrace to not go on that part of our programming. We hope this yr will deliver additional individuals to campus to see the function in person as opposed to almost as they did past 12 months.”
