CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – At 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 23, artist Maysey Craddock will present a public lecture on her work at Austin Peay State University. Craddock is the recipient of the inaugural APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts Tennessee Artist Fellowship.

The CECA Tennessee Artist Fellowship was created by APSU to support the continued creative work of exceptional Tennessee artists. Unlike other fellowships, applications and nominations from artist were not solicited. A committee of APSU faculty compiled a list of outstanding artists from across the state and selected the fellowship winner. Through the generous support of APSU’s Center of Excellence in the Creative Arts, Craddock received $5,000 to aid in the creation of new artwork.

Craddock earned her M.F.A. from the Maine College of Art and a B.A. from Tulane University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, including shows in New York, Stuttgart, Berlin, Chicago, Seattle, Dallas and New Orleans. She is currently represented by David Lusk Gallery in Memphis, Sears Peyton Fine Arts in New York and Cris Worley Fine Arts in Dallas.
