“Emergence” photographs by APSU student Sara Straussberger at the Framemaker

Austin Peay Art and Design Sara Straussberger

The Framemaker is proud to present Emergence by photographer, Sara Straussberger. This exhibit is part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on December 1, 2016. An opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display at the Framemaker throughout the month of December during normal business hours (Mn. through Fri. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Sara Straussberger is a Bachelor of Fine Arts student in the Department of Art and Design and a Philosophical Studies minor at Austin Peay State University. Emergence is her senior thesis exhibition. This body of work includes photographs of constructed landscapes. The artist’s process transforms banal objects that would typically occupy a space of only two or three feet into vast natural landscapes. These objects no longer exist in an environment—they become the environment.

The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from the Clarksville Academy.
