The Riverview Inn hosted local photographer, Lucas Ryan Chambers, an internationally published photographer and graphic designer based in Clarksville, TN.

And, the Framemaker proudly presented new work by Jim Diehr, with an opening reception that lasted from 5:00pm-8:00pm. Diehr’s work will be on display throughout the month of May. He is Professor Emeritus at Austin Peay State University, whose work has been exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally.

Other downtown businesses, Like Yada Yada Cafe, and Edwards’s Steakhouse hosted artists, or stayed open late to support the ever-growing Art Walk. Clarksville’s flagship venue for the arts, Downtown Artists Co-op have two artists featured for May.

Fantastic Chemistry: Cheating Sameness, features works by Regina Mick and Jane Olson.

“I’m a mixed-media artist,” Mick said. “I mainly focus on abstract acrylic work, but I also do collage. Jane does watercolor, and some collage as well. Together, we brought a lot of different mediums to the show.”

The two artists filled the walls of the DAC with more than 30 pieces of original art. Singer/Songwriter Bobby Keel performed for the larger than usual First Thursday crowd, and the opening was a success.

“I feel like the response was great,” Mick said. “It was one of the best Art Walks that I’ve been to. We had a packed house, and ran out of food pretty quickly. Between us, Jane and I sold between 1/3 and ½ of the art on display. We also saw a lot of new faces. The normal Art Walk crowd was there, but it was really great to see so many new faces.”

Mick and Olson’s artwork will remain on display until the end of May. For more information, go to Downtown Artists Cooperative on Facebook.
