The DAC is an association of talented local artists and interested patrons dedicated to promoting the visual arts in the Clarksville/Montgomery County area. Our objectives are to sponsor art exhibitions of work by Co-op members and regional artists, to provide continuing support for the Co-op and its membership through the sale of art work, to encourage arts education with outreach programs and scholarship fundraisers, and to develop membership services which directly support the arts community.
The upcoming exhibit at the Downtown Artists’ Cooperative & Gallery (DAC Gallery) is titled HERBARIUM. It will convey a collection of recent original ink renditions by artist member D.C.Thomas.
The opening reception will be during the First Thursday Artwalk, March 5th, in Downtown Historic Clarksville, from 5pm to 8 pm, at 96 Franklin Street.
The exhibit – HERBARIUM – will be on view until March 28th.
Admission into the DAC Gallery is free. For more information about the DAC Gallery, please visit Downtown Artists Co-op | DAC | Tennessee | Clarksville.
Personal insight from the artist, “This project is no Emily Dickinson attempt, but just another juxtaposition of Sumi-e botanical contexts and allegorical titles I actually wanted to turn into poems. In this display of recent works, I show that I remain truthful to my art, to my imagination, to my pain, to the love inside of me. I will continue to strive remaining truthful to this amalgam of poetry and visuals that seem to extend from my heartstrings and pathways in my brain in a way I can’t quite explain.
roots conquer the barren soil, they ensure their living. They don’t grasp the concept of fear. Flowers pass into the next life through seeds I chose not to render in this exhibit. I haven’t gotten to that part yet. So much to ﬁgure out still.”
