The Framemaker proudly presents new work by artist Jared Cleghorn. This exhibit is part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on May 1, 2014. An opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The artwork will remain on display at the Framemaker throughout the month of May during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
Jared Cleghorn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Austin Peay State University in 2009. Geographical themes and expansive horizons continued to direct his attention, and eventually led him to continue his education. As a result, he is currently studying Geoscience with a concentration in Geographic Information Systems. This exhibit explores Cleghorn’s sense of place by integrating a knowledge of the visual arts with his growing scientific understanding of the natural world.
Cleghorn is fond of collage, and in particular reusing old, discarded paper scraps and forgotten documents. He combines these pieces to recreate memories and landscapes to be remembered.
According to Cleghorn, “I took a trip earlier this year that involved driving, flying, being shuttled around and hotel rooms, which meant spending a great portion of my time looking out windows. I saw inspiring landscapes and experienced moments that I will cherish for the remainder of my life. This trip revealed the fact that for most of my life, I’ve found myself looking out of windows. I have created physical memories of what I viewed through the various windows of a trip in an attempt to preserve, relive, and share these memories and experiences.”
He continues, “Each window is a limited line of sight or a glimpse that represents the time frame I am allotted to experience a moment, a friend, a lover, a landscape, or my life as with any portrait or portrayal.”
The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from the Clarksville Academy.

For his PRS project, titled Art Through Relation: An Artist’s Collaboration on Campus, Zach intends to develop series of what he refers to as “relational” artworks encompassing his (increasingly idiosyncratic) crossover approaches to painting, drawing, and sculpture. These works will culminate in an on-campus exhibition in the Fall or early Spring. Zach will be working with Professor Virginia Griswold on his project.
