Meet artisan Charles Hood
I was born and raised in Southern California and entered the military after graduating high school. During my service career I had many duties ending as a Warrant Officer Flight Instructor, this is what brought me and my family to Clarksville in 1977. I have always been involved in working with many different enterprises and medians. I have found the challenge and precision required in making the segmented bowls has given me the most satisfaction and pleasure of all that I've done, it's so exciting to see what and how I can exploit the beauty of nature.
DAC Artist LARRY R. RICHARDSON
Cumberland River Collection
Moves to Kentucky!
Larry Richardson’s 18-painting show featuring the Cumberland River hangs at the Customs House Museum in Clarksville through July 31. Many of the scenes are from Montgomery and surrounding counties. “The Customs House exhibit is a piece of history. I hope some of the local scenes remain here in homes and businesses for posterity sake,” Richardson reflects. The collection will move to the Harlan Center in Harlan, Kentucky August-September, where the
river starts its 700 mile journey to the Ohio River. Six new paintings are being added to the collection as the exhibit moves to the new location. His biography describes him as an artist, naturalist and writer with three books to his credit and currently working on a fourth. You can follow his activity and see more artwork at www.cumberlandriverartist.com .
