June Art Walk and Wine

This Thursday, June 5th, the streets of Historic Downtown Clarksville will come alive with the arts, as it does every first Thursday of each month.

Hodgepodge, in particular, will be host to two extremely talented individuals.

Judy Lewis, a native to Clarksville, as been a resident of several different cities in the U.S., has returned to settle in a home she is currently restoring. She has found the time to establish a foundation for her business here in Clarksville--the creation of fine art. She has been honing her talents for 25 years and her works dot the country. Judy will bring a selection of her work for your pleasure. She will be displaying several of her works as a portrait artist. You'll love the realism and her ability to capture the spirit of the subject. Judy has also produced a number of works focused on local sites.

You'll also have the opportunity to meet and greet Patsy Dollar, "The Loose Potter." Patsy has traveled extensively and lived throughout the U.S. courtesy of the US Army. She started working with poured ceramics in 1980, at a local ceramics shop. Since then, she has expanded into working with thrown clay pottery. Specializing in teapots, face canisters and Blessing Bowls, she "attempts to capture the movement of life within the clay and put it in a functional form with positive affirmations."

As always, Hodgepodge will provide refreshments for your enjoyment throughout the evening.

A new feature to art walk will be the members of Clarksville Independent Artists, located at the corner of Legion and 2nd Streets. Specifically, Pat Jones (last month at Hodgepodge) will be there! You'll also find new art displays at Posh and The Roxy. The Downtown Artists Co-op is opening its annual membership exhibit, where you'll find more than 60 new works on display.
Please remember to shop Pal's Package Store and tell the folks there how much you appreciate their generous support of the wine tastings at The Roxy. Without their kind contributions, we'd likely have to remove the "wine" from our Art Walk and Wine.

See you Thursday!
Thanks for your indulgence.
