Grand Opening: Austin Peay Downtown Art Gallery
The gallery opens with “Whatever,” a show of work by APSU art alumni. Artists featured in this exhibit include Chip Boles, Marc Pewitt, Miranda Herrick, Betsy Wynkoop, Kelly Kerrigan, Ally Reeves, Bill Eilliot, Scotty Peek, Young Kim, Donna Stack, Travis Childers and Melody Shipley.
“Whatever” opens with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. that Thursday evening. The exhibit runs through Nov. 28.
The gallery will be open from noon to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays, but it will be closed this Thanksgiving.
The main objective of this new gallery is to feature the work of APSU Department of Art Alumni and Faculty.
The new Austin Peay Downtown Gallery is housed in a small, two-story building, tucked away in downtown Clarksville’s Strawberry Alley. It’s only a mile or less from the main campus, but the new gallery is strategically located in the heart of Clarksville’s growing art district. On the first Thursday of every month, this area’s many galleries open their doors to crowds of art enthusiasts. The AP Downtown Gallery will open with a new exhibition every first Thursday.
