Summer Research:
Relationships Past and Present
Katherine Tolleson

The Framemaker proudly presents portraits (mixed media on photograph) by Katherine Tolleson. This exhibit is part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on February 6, 2020. An opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display at the Framemaker throughout the month of February during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Artist Statement: This series of portraits was a part of my summer research trip to Ukraine, summer 2019. My mother is from Ukraine, and the last time that I had been there was almost 10 years ago. This series reflects the relationships that I had with these people when I was younger, and how revisiting them changed my view of reality and truth. This body of work examines the amount of change that occurred within these relationships, as well as the discovery of truths that I was previously unfamiliar with.

Artist Bio: Katherine Tolleson was born and raised in Adams, Tennessee. She is currently studying at Austin Peay State University to get her Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art. Experimentation and exploration is important in her work, as well as examining and deconstructing truth within relationships. She is inspired by the hard-working staff and faculty of APSU Art and Design department.
