JEREMY the artist ZIMMERMAN was born in Nashville, Tennessee on September
13, 1973, where he lived for several years before traveling Out West with
his young parents… Living in the mountains of Colorado and traveling until
he was ten, he filled his childhood with many magical memories of nature and

After returning to Tennessee, he settled into school in Tullahoma where he
was more interested in dreams than in school — getting into a little hot
water for spay-painting the town… which earned him four-hundred hours of
public service work…

After learning a lesson about vandalism in his community; he stayed on track
to prove ART is not a crime!!!

At eighteen he moved to the Tampa area in Florida and was exposed to a
rough, street side of life and cut his visit short by hitchhiking back 1300
miles to the mountains of Kentucky, staying three months in a hippie commune
and getting back to the roots of his early childhood of nature and fun…

Later in his 20’s he lived in his hometown Nashville, and for seven years,
he worked as an artist at Opryland. At 27, he moved back home to Tullahoma
and started from scratch, having four children and using his life lessons to
be the most protecting and loving father…

He provides for his family by running his own construction company, Superior
Woodwork, which is responsible for projects in our community such as
Citizens Tri-county Bank, The Celtic Cup, George Dickel and many more.

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.
