CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – For local Artist, Lynne Griffey, Art has always been a passion. Being an art teacher in the Clarksville Montgomery County School System was one way to express herself through art but what she really wanted to do was paint for herself.
After her kids were grown and after retiring from teaching, Griffey suddenly realized she had some time on her hands to fulfill her dream.
She started out painting a mural for Neal, Tarpley Parchman funeral home, which drew rave reviews, and more importantly drew appreciation from family members who found comfort in her painting.
Griffey then started painting famous buildings in our area, such as the museum and courthouse, giving her artwork away for whatever charity asked for it. She was commissioned to do a calendar for Big Brothers, Big Sisters which they have been using as their fund raiser for 3 years now.
She has recently joined the Downtown Artists Co-op and adding numerous painting to their galleries. She has also branched out into painting other subjects besides buildings. Her newest artwork of a peacock feather which she painted on a rice paper canvas is beautiful and eye-catching in its uniqueness.
Griffey’s artwork will be on display for the remainder of the month at Planters Bank Madison St. location. For more information, contact Michelle Dickerson at Planters Bank by phone at 648-7154 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
