The Framemaker proudly presents work by Kim Balevre and Mollie Downton, with a special Thomas Lott Memorial Exhibition as part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on September 6, 2012. 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 September during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
Kim Balevre received a bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communication from Austin Peay State University (APSU) in 2008. She currently works as a graphic designer in the public relations and marketing department at Austin Peay State University. According to Kim, her exhibit, “Downstream” conveys the experience of floating on water, through time and away from reality.
Mollie Downton is a certified special education teacher and is currently pursuing admission to graduate school to earn her certification in art therapy and her licensure as a mental health provider. According to Mollie, “The reason I do art is because I find it to be an emotional release and satisfying process. I simply want people to find my work oddly beautiful and interesting. It is an added bonus if people can further relate to it on an emotional level.”
In addition, a special memorial exhibition featuring the work of Thomas Lott will be featured. Lott’s mother, Rita Wilson states, “For Thomas, there were so many things he wanted to see, places to go, more people to meet, one more book to read, and that elusive photo he wanted to capture. Mostly he lived in the fast lane trying to do it all. Although he was only 30, he had lived a full life and he was weary.”
The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from The Clarksville Academy.
