Joining the DAC was one of the best things I've ever done. I enjoy the people, both the artists and the patrons. It's established me as an artist in the community. So thankful to be a member of the DAC, Downtown Artist Co-op, Clarksville, TN. Clarksville is my home town, where I was raised and I now live in Erin, just 30 minutes down the road.
DAC hosts a photography juried competition as well as a juried Art Expo to all artists in the region, not just their members. They offer each artist a solo show every two years. The artist can also exhibit in the window of the DAC. There is a Holiday Bazaar and an Annual Auction. They are one of the sponsors of the 2Rivers Paint Out in October along with the Clarksville Montgomery County Arts and Heritage Developmental Council. They do so much for the community, stop by and visit. Due to Covid they are only open Fridays 1-5 pm and Saturdays 11-4 pm and by appointment.
The DAC remains committed to supporting local artists by exhibiting and promoting art online:

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.
