In the Crouch Gallery until May 2nd, Kathleen Conover: Industrial Evolution, a collection of her stunning watercolor paintings.

“The most ‘signature’ element in my work is deep symbolism,” Conover said. She received her MFA from Northern Michigan University, and did her graduate work in printmaking at Gonzaga University. The award-winning artist holds signature status in many organizations and has exhibited her paintings in the United States and abroad.

In the Peg Harvill Gallery until April 1st, Julia Martin: Hipnagogic, a series that presents impressionistic figurative paintings in a world where the real and the imagined appear one and the same. Julia Martin is a Nashville artist and gallery owner who says she paints “the surreal moments just before sleep, when lucid dreaming and hallucinations often occur.”

Featured on the lower level, in the Josten’s Gallery until May 27th, Seasons: Frank Majors. The Charleston native’s work in this show reflects the seasons of life. In ‘Seasons’ you will see contemplative works that compel the viewer to stand in the place of the photographer and imagine the feelings that are inspired by an object or a location, Like bicycles that sit on a second-story balcony, overlooking a bustling New Orleans street. Or. A beautiful rose, at the peak of its short life, that playfully climbs on a rickety trellis that’s slowly losing its own battle with time.

In Memory Lane until September 30th, Our Town (Stories of Clarksville). An exhibition of regional stories featuring photographs and artifacts from Customs House collections, including the jail, Trinity Episcopal Church, the court house, Capitol Theater, and more.

These are just the latest exhibits to go on display at the Customs House Museum.
