Clarksville, TN – Riverfest Art Experience was a feast for the senses Thursday night. Celtic music by Red River Breeze enticed visitors to drift and dream, and maybe dance a little jig while munching on cheese, grapes, punch and some of the yummiest brownies on the planet.
There were paintings, drawings, photography, multi-media to please almost everyone. I spoke with Brianah Summons about her painting of her favorite animals which included a tiger, a wolf, and a horse all in brilliant colors and could have easily reminded one of carousel animals. Brianah was accompanied by her mother, Cordelia Marroquin who is, I’m sure, the Kenwood High School Senior’s best supporter.
