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.

ARTIST INFORMATION:

The Board of the Downtown Artists Cooperative is happy to announce the upcoming art exhibit for March 2021, in the River Gallery – The DAC Annual Membership Exhibit.
This is a group exhibit showcasing recent works of DAC Members, including artworks In Memoriam for Mark Griggs, Charles Hood, Hilda Waide and Daryle Grenead.
This exhibit will be on display starting on March 4th, until March 27th.
Admission is free. 
 
The Spires Window at DAC will reflect the Outreach efforts of the Gallery, a “Youth Art Month” window exhibit planned and curated by Peggy Bonnington, the Gallery’s Outreach Coordinator and Board Member. 
The DAC is also proud to announce that the DAC is art sponsoring the Children Gallery wall at the Clarksville Public Library on the 2nd floor, under the supervision of artist members and volunteers Hope Brill and Peggy Bonnington. The library’s featured artist for March through June, 2021 is DAC Member and Volunteer Betty Pierce Liles, whose original art is on display for encouraging the creativity in our community. 
An informal opening reception will safely be held on the First Thursday,  March 4th, from 5PM to 8PM. No drinks or food will be served. Maximum occupancy of 10 people, at the same time, within the gallery facility. 
The DAC Gallery, located at 96 Franklin Street, in the Downtown Historic Clarksville, is open on Fridays 1-5 PM and on Saturdays 11 AM to 4 PM. The Gallery can also open by appointment for patrons and visitors who are interested in taking a closer look at the exhibits outside the business hours.
The DAC remains committed to supporting local artists by exhibiting and promoting art online, and volunteering for in-gallery activities to help the organization survive through the pandemic.
As we prepare to close our in-gallery Photo Expo Exhibit, the online Photo Exhibit will remain accessible online for 90 days, on the DAC website.
Social distancing, hand sanitizing and wearing of masks or face coverings are observed within the gallery facility, during the pandemic caused by COVID-19.
