We offer artwork from many local Clarksville, Tennessee artists, as well as artists based in our nearby state capital, Nashville. Original watercolors, etchings, Chinese brush paintings, photographs and polaroid transfers are available at Lynne's, as well as signed prints, Spirit of Nashville posters, notecards and post cards. We carry some unique wire tree sculptures, as well as some carved and turned wood pieces.
Lynne's Custom Framing also frames for needlework designer Linda Stolz and her popular company, Erica Michaels Needleart Designs. Linda's beautiful designs are distributed nationally, and most of the framed models shown on the covers were done right here in Clarksville at Lynne's. (See the July/August 2010 issue of Just CrossStitch magazine for a feature about Linda's work and to see some of our needlework framing.)
We've included links when possible to our artists own websites so you may see more about them and their work.
Jan is our featured artist and a Clarksville native. She paints mainly realist watercolor scenes from nature, as well as some less traditional nature still life and abstract works. Dunbar Cave is a favorite subject of Jan's.
Jan has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Austin Peay State University and is a member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society. Her work has been included in museum and gallery shows, and Lynne's is proud to be the only local gallery offering Jan's beautiful original watercolors.
Melissa studied Studio Art at Truman State University and earned her BFA in printmaking and a BA in ceramics there. Her work includes intaglio, screen print and monotype processes. Originally from Illinois, Melissa has spent most of her life in mid-Missouri, and currently resides in Clarksville with her husband, Kris.
We are happy to offer Melissa's original work in our gallery and invite you to come see her original prints.
Mr. DuBose created original etchings of birds, both realistic and whimsical. The etchings are hand-watercolored in editions of no more than 300 in his Nashville, Tennessee studio. We've been fans of his for years, having run across his work at art festivals in Nashville, and are proud to carry his lovely etchings.
Mr. DuBose considers himself more printmaker than nature illustrator, and uses the same techniques for printmaking perfected by Rembrandt in the 17th century. Each image is acid-etched on a copper or zinc plate which is then inked by hand. Excess ink is removed, and the heavy paper is turned through a hand-cranked press to transfer the image. The resulting original etching is then hand-watercolored.
Mr. DuBose has recently retired, and sadly, the etchings we now have in the gallery are the last ones available to us to sell.
Mr. Fizer's stunning black and white and color photography is created using 8x10 film with amazing results. This Nashville native often spends weeks, even years, waiting for all the elements he's looking for to come together for just the right shot.
Focusing on the architectural, cultural, and natural landmarks in the area for the last few years, Fizer has created beautiful giclee prints of Clarksville's historic downtown, Nashville landmarks and scenes, and surrounding areas as well. At his website, joefizerphotography.com, you can see the full range of his work and learn more about him.
We carry a selection of his work, and are glad to special order anything you may see on his website that we do not already stock.
Gerald Sanders starts with hundreds of straight 23 gauge wires and ends up with beautiful replicas of leafless trees in winter.
Using hand tools, this Nashville artist tightly twists the wires to form tree trunks, then patiently separates the wires, shaping them into tree branches. We carry his black wall sculptures in three styles: windblown, weeping, and upright.
Sanders says, "My favorite time of year is winter when all the leaves are gone from the trees. Trees have so much more character when they are bare. Only then do you realize how individualistic they are."
Beverly Parker is a long-time Clarksville resident who makes beautiful, unique art combining her photography skill with a creative style of print making.
We are happy to offer Parker's original polaroid transfers, as well as her newer prints made using a combination of processes, including polaroid transfer and digital techniques, which incorporate text and number fragments within the work. These pieces have a very interesting layered, textured look.
Erica Michaels' needleart designs are available to purchase here at Lynne's! We carry The Erica Michaels "Petites" collection in the shop and are happy to get in any of her other needlework patterns as well. Check out the Erica Michaels website to see the stitched models, then stop in Lynne's to purchase the patterns. Clarksville is lucky to have a local artist like needlework designer Linda Stolz, and we are happy to offer her designs for sale in our shop.
Brand new designs released at the needlework show in Nashville, February 2012 are now available!
Clarksville was lucky enough to have California native Tracie Griffith Tso as a resident for several years, and we are so happy to offer her original Chinese brush paintings in our gallery.
Tracie began studying Chinese painting at age 12, and has taught and lectured on the art style in museums and galleries across the country.
Bamboo, magnolia, peony, chrysanthemum, Chinese carp, and horse are among the traditional subjects Tracie paints.
We offer original ink and pigment paintings on rice paper by Tracie Griffith Tso.
Award-winning graphic designers at Anderson Design Group in Nashville have been producing these beautiful posters celebrating Nashville landmarks for the last several years. All are drawn in the "golden age of poster art" style, and we carry the images on notecards and post cards as well.
