On Exhibit now…Come see the fabulous art!

Clark Walker :: Clark Walker, who was born in Selma, Alabama, has been painting since he was a child. After high school he studied with late Montgomery artist Charles Shannon. Later, he left the Capital City to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine. While there, he studied with Ben Shahn and Jack Levine. Clark describes his work as “abstract with a representational twist.” His figurative paintings display graceful and serene individuals lost in contemplation. “These are mostly imaginary people, but at the same time, they seem like someone you know.”

Melissa Tubbs :: Melissa B. Tubbs has been creating finely-detailed pen-and-ink drawings of architectural subjects for 20 years. Her works document buildings and their ornamentation in order to preserve them for future generations. She is a firm believer in the proverb “The wise man preserves that which he values and celebrates that which he preserves.” Form, line, and light have more emphasis in black and white, perfect for rendering architectural elements. She is interested in conveying the depth created by the contrast of bright light and cast shadows. The woodcuts of Albrecht Durer and the wood engravings of Barry Moser have influenced her pen-and-ink work.

Larry Wilson :: Larry Wilson was raised in Alabama but now resides in Georgia.  He has worked many jobs throughout his life, including buying and selling land and raising cattle.  At 50, Larry got “his hands in mud and couldn’t ever get ’em out.”  He says that making his clay forms gives him a feeling that he just can’t explain.  “The Lord has just blessed me with it.”  His self-taught art is “sold up” at almost every market and show he attends.  Wilson’s wife and daughter help him with his exploding business.  From monkies and alligators to Santa riding pigs, Larry’s God-given talent can not help but put a smile on your face.

Come meet the artists, November 17th from 6-8 pm

About Tullahoma Art Center

"Preserving the past, engaging the present and nurturing the future of Middle Tennessee by stimulating diverse creative expression, positive encouragement and quality, regional opportunities for access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities." The Tullahoma Fine Arts Center is an ADA-compliant facility committed to the development of quality cultural experiences and education by providing access to and instruction in the Arts and Humanities, and influencing the direction of area visual, literary, performing and creative arts. TFAC, above all, encourages professionalism in the artistic community and among its artists and students, thereby raising standards of excellence in creativity, design and the production and practice of cultural craftsmanship. We promote the development of arts programming opportunities by offering classes, demonstrations, performances, publications and exhibitions. We are currently expanding our Member Gallery so that members may display and/or sell their original works -- creating unique marketing opportunities for them to reach local, regional and national audiences. We strive to increase public experience, understanding, appreciation and awareness of (as well as access to) the Arts and Humanities, especially in underserved and disenfranchised communities. TFAC seeks to strengthen our existing Regional Art Museum and lending library by encouraging donations of books, works of art and the endowment of funds to secure further permanent collections of both. We are actively exploring ways to assist area school systems with their Arts and Humanities curriculums, providing both extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities for gifted and talented students as well as for the academically and economically disadvantaged. Finally, we are firmly committed to partnering with civic organizations, other non-profits, city, county and state governments to compliment each another’s fields of expertise.
