The March Art Walk will be held March 2nd, 2023 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm at the shops and galleries on Public Square, Franklin Street, and Strawberry Alley.

The participating businesses are listed below as well as a description of the work they will be exhibiting and services they will be offering during the event.

First Presbyterian Church (213 Main Street)

First Presbyterian Church is thrilled to participate in the First Thursday Art Walk in March 2023 and host local artist Larry Richardson.

Born in rural western Kentucky, Larry Richardson’s love of the outdoors led to a career that included an advanced degree in biology, work in parks and wildlife, art publishing, U.S. Senate and currently “a painter of where I like to be.” Larry has also written several books, the latest “Tennessee Wilderness – A Legacy Endures.”

Larry and his wife, Roberta, live in downtown Clarksville, Tennessee, within a few blocks of the Cumberland River. Many of his paintings are inspired by his surroundings, In fact, he continues to expand a series featuring the river. He is serving on the Board of Trustees at the Customs House Museum and will assume chairmanship in January 2024. He is a member of Oil Painters of America and has served as judge for numerous art contests. In 2021, he was selected as a judge for the Federal Duck Stamp contest, an honor which is bestowed only once in a lifetime. Larry’s artwork appears in several shows each year.
“I guess you could say I’ve looked over the shoulders of a lot of great artists I’ve known, but I’ve also had formal training. I like realism, not photographic, but more toward an impressionistic style, leaving a loose edge or the gesture of a shadow, inviting the viewer to make the final stroke.”

Art Link (116 Strawberry Alley)

ArtLink is proud to support the March 2023 First Thursday Art Walk and will host local artist Ciarra Slifer.

“Hey there! My name is Ciarra Slifer but I also go by CJ. I own Wandern Forge Studio and I am a wife, mother, former full-time nurse, and artist. I spent a long period of 10 years consumed by nothing more than healthcare and in my free time creating.”

“It wasn’t until I began a journey to become a nurse midwife that I realized I was burnt out a bit. So I took a break and I haven’t looked back once because I am fulfilled in this moment by my artwork and my life. My mediums include drawing, painting and woodwork but I dabble in just anything.”

“I have lived in Clarksville since 2019 when the Army brought my family here. We are still an active duty family but want nothing more than to stay in Clarksville, as it has truly become a community I love. In over 4 years I have held many hats in the community.”

“From hosting events to creating Clarksville Bohomies, which is one of the largest plant groups locally. Now working for Artlink as their Social Media Director, where I truly get to be as creative as I want. I want nothing more than to build a positive community and feel more than ever now art is helping me.”

“My artwork or pieces are centered heavily around immersing oneself in nature and becoming mindful. We can learn a lot about ourselves when we take time to breathe and slow down. I know this is said often, but truly it is important and I feel my art reflects this. So, that’s me and if you are up to chat more join the facebook group Clarksville Bohomies, message me on one of my socials, or come into Artlink Thursday to Sunday and see if you can’t find me.”
We also have 3s company the local band playing in the studio live too.
Let’s get social!

It is our hope, this event brings a smile to your eye.

EyeSmile Studio

From Stephen’s 2019 show where he remarked in his artists statement on being blessed to make the eye smile, he knew from that moment, those words would serve as the foundation of Eye Smile Studio.

The primary premise of the studio is providing digital created art and graphic design, generating a separate lane of effort from his Fine art photography. The intent of his studio is to offer visual art that makes the eye smile.

About the Artist:

Stephen Schlegel is a contemporary visual artist with artistic passions in digital created art, digital print art, graphic design, and photography. He is a retired US Army Veteran with 24 years of service.

Also, he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Austin Peay State University in graphic design, with additional emphasis in photography and studio art. Combining the art education from APSU with over 20 years’ experience with digital art, Stephen brings a unique perspective and out-of-the-box methods and techniques.

Stephen is invested in the community. He has been an active and participating member of the Downtown Artists Cooperative Art Gallery Since 2018 and he provides enduring photography and graphic design services to local non-profit organizations and businesses.

Stephen’s approach to digital created art rests on the principle of curiosity over expectation, he notes, I guide the works progress – letting it develop its own unique identity. Using varying techniques, Stephen creates each piece following this principle. His work is fresh and original, offering the viewer a unique visual experience.
His approach to Photography is intentional and purposeful. Calculating time and light, he sets the conditions for each work, creating mood and projecting the best possible outcome of the composition. As a traveling artist, Stephen works both in studio and on location.
Stephen’s work resides in private and corporate collections throughout the Clarksville community, Nashville, North Carolina, Alaska, Ireland, Italy and Spain.
