I worked at the DAC Saturday morning and afterwards I traveled a couple of blocks to the Customs House Museum, downtown Clarksville, TN. I had already seem the present show, and loved, loved it. As part of the theme of African American Artworks of Paper the museum featured guest speaker Frank Morrison out of Atlanta. He is the illustrator of the book "The Quickest Kid in Clarksville. I so enjoyed his talk, he is one very interesting artist and soooo talented. Please, if you love drawing, printmaking and mark making, GO SEE THIS EXHIBIT at the Customs House Museum. It ends August 1st. It has works by Henry Ossawa Tanner, Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden and MORE>

This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
