CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Austin Peay State University’s Department of Art and Design will host the 2016 US Bank Open Exhibition April 15-16, during Clarkville’s Rivers and Spires Festival.

The Open Exhibition is an opportunity for artists living in and around Montgomery County to exhibit their work, sell their work and to help raise money for APSU art scholarships. To date, 20 APSU art majors have received the US Bank Scholarship, and numerous artists from the Clarksville community have been honored for their creative achievements with prize money donated annually by US Bank.

This year’s exhibition will be held at 328 College Street, in the former Jenkins and Wynne ‘Pre-Owned Sales’ building.

Residents (18 years and older) of Montgomery County and surrounding regions may submit one work of art in the Amateur or the Professional division. APSU art faculty may also submit work to the exhibition, but they will not be considered for awards. All entries must be original and not previously shown in the Open Exhibition. For a full prospectus and entry forms, please visit www.apsu.edu/art.

An opening reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. Friday, April 15. Exhibition awards will be announced beginning at 6 p.m. The exhibition will be open to the public from 5-8 p.m. on Friday, April 15, and from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, April 16.
