Hanging at The Children's Gallery

Artwork by Brandt Hardin and Charles Bennett
For the next three months, you'll be able to see some artwork from myself, Charles "Wolfman" Bennett and Miranda Herrick at the Children's Gallery of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library here in town.  We owe a special thanks to our dear friend Richard Hogan, who helped facilitate the three of us into the public eye once again here locally.

Funny enough, Charles and I had a doozy of a time just creating a couple of original paintings which would be "kid friendly."  We struck success last weekend with two collaborative panels.  Also exhibited are two framed illustrations, both of which were collaborations with Miranda Herrick about five years ago.  I decided to include this very slick Egyptian-inspired illustration from a few year back which I thought blended well.  The drawing seen here with one of Charles' paintings you may recognize from my business card!

Artwork by Charles Bennett, Miranda Herrick and myself can be seen at The Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library at 350 Pageant Lane here in Clarksville off Madison Street through October.   This afternoon we installed the exhibit so here are pictures of the process and a sneak peek at the art you can see in person starting tomorrow... 





Miranda's piece had to be assembled before hanging it...


Miranda used post consumer packaging to make her recycled panels!

Hanging Mishap!  You may not see this one if you stop by the Library Monday.  It's being re-framed though and will be on display sometime this week!

Our exhibit can be found in the upstairs of the library next to the Clarksville Veteran's Quilt!

  1. The kids will love it!!! Good for them to see grown artist's work... Don't sell yourself too short, kids have an imagination and don't normally find reasons to be offended. They will be encouraged to draw and paint their own pictures and that is an amazing thing... Who knows... might be some future Brandt Hardin's, Charles Bennett's and Miranda Herrick's!! I look forward to the future!! It's gonna be ALright!!

    1. Thanks Melanie! All too often the kids absolutely love my art and give me great feedback through their smiles and enthusiasm while the parents try and usher them away. I'm delighted when they see things in the work and actually "get it." We should have some shows for kids ONLY!
