Bill Brison :: Bill began painting in high school but never pursued his art until later in life. Twenty five years passed and he picked up his brushes and has been painting ever since. Much of the work you see today are from travels that he and his wife had taken or are from places he hopes to visit someday.
A member of the Chestnut Group of Plein Air Painters, his watercolors and oils have been exhibited in the Central South National Art Show as well as others in Tennessee and Kentucky. His most recent book; “A Brush with Rutherford”, grew from the 101 paintings of historic places in Rutherford County. He is the owner of the Appletons Creative Framers, Middle Tennessee’s only nationally award winning picture framer, celebrating more than 25 years of creative framing in Murfresboro, TN.
Art Mulkey :: Art (aka Butch in these parts) has been autistic all his life despite his self-proclaimed lack of talent. Greatly influenced by Disney, Mad Magazine, and R Crumb his work displays a whimsical / toonish style which ranges from multi media (wood, paint. stained glass, metal) to modern functional to found object folk art. Art began creating pieces for family and friends as gifts and only recently ventured into the “profession.”
He has shown his works at MOMA, the Googenhime……NOT (He did, however, design the new addition to the latter using the alias Art Van deLei) Art grew up in Tullahoma, graduating in 1965 and just recently moved home to help care for his mother and work with Dr. Marilyn Everett at Family Chiropractic Complex. He says he is honored to be showing his artwork at the Tullahoma Fine Arts Center and is hoping the show will be a homecoming of sorts. He looks forward to visiting with ooooold friends as well as making new ones. Come one, come all!
