Paintings by Tara Swalgren
The Framemaker proudly presents paintings by Clarksville, Tennessee artist Tara Swalgren. This exhibit is part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on April 4, 2019. 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 April during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
Tara states: “I am drawn to painting animals with a kind of urgency and desire. I want to create these intricate and beautiful creatures that we only see and hear about in folk lore or our fantasies. My art demands the viewers to get lost in the lines and repetitive details of the flowers and fur. It encourages the viewer to enjoy their train of thought and indulge in their imagination, to be there in that moment if only for a minute”.
Tara Swalgren graduated from Austin Peay State University with a BFA in Studio Art. She enjoys illustrating animals that have a captivating and mysterious feel, which she enhances by incorporating natural elements, such as flowers, crystals and plants. The creatures she creates are fantastical yet believable.
The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from the Clarksville Academy.
