The April Boro Art Crawl will take place on the 104h from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. The Crawl takes place in and around Murfreesboro’s city square.
Murfreesboro’s Art Committee and the Center for the Arts are co-sponsoring student art contests, the art of those students who are competing in the Murfreesboro City Schools competition will have their art showing during the Crawl in the Murfreesboro City Hall Rotunda. The art from young artists from both the city and county competitions will go on to an all-county competition at Middle Tennessee State University in May. The contests are open to kindergarten through high school students.
The Center for the Arts will be featuring the work of Carol Berning entitled “From Vietnam to Tennessee.” Her art features photos of her life in Tennessee beside portraits of children based on snapshots her husband took while stationed in Vietnam in 1968 when he was serving during the war.
Kenneth McEastland will be showing his work at Let’s Make Wine. McEastland said, “Everything that I do visually starts with a drawing. It is the backbone for all of my images…. [and] I want to approach art a little different than my contemporaries. I want to be different but not weird. I … strive to create beautiful images that people would love to put in their homes, but not use … conventional subject matter or … conventional mediums.”
Diane Marcella also experiments with imagery, using digital photography which she “prints” on aluminum. Her images are often dreamlike, or look at normal images in unique ways. She will be showing her work at Quinn’s Mercantile.
