Legends Bank Showcases Local Artists in October
Legends Bank will be featuring the work of local artists, called the “Five” throughout the month of October at their downtown Clarksville location.
About The “Five”
The “Five” showcases the works of five local artists in the Clarksville-Montgomery County area, each of whom primarily uses a different medium for their works.
- Leah Foote – Watercolor
- Malcolm Glass – Photography
- Richard Hogan – Mixed Media
- Terri Jordan – Acrylics
- Larry Martin – Oils
Featuring collections from five artists allows the audience to experience a wide range of style, texture, and subject matter that may not be seen in a solo exhibit. Each of the featured artists has exhibited throughout Tennessee and the Southeast.
Meet the Artists
Leah has always been drawn to the light and translucence in watercolor. After retiring from a career in education, she returned to painting. Leah has studied under Gail McDaniel and Gayle Levee. She is a member of the Downtown Artists’ Co-op in Clarksville, the Hopkinsville Art Guild, 2 Rivers Society of Painters, and the Tennessee Watercolor Society.
Malcolm Glass has exhibited work in numerous galleries in the mid-south, and he has published photos in several magazines and books. In 2001, he won first prize in a photography competition in Asheville, North Carolina for the book, “Asheville: A Photographic Portrait,” published by Twin Lights. A graduate of Stetson and Vanderbilt Universities, Glass lives in Clarksville, Tennessee, where for a number of years before his retirement, he directed the writing program of the Center of Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University. He has been a fellow at The Ragdale Foundation and The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. In 1990, Glass was the recipient of the Stetson University Distinguished Alumni Award. I, 1992, he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship in Creative Writing for a reading and lecture tour of Slovenia.
Richard Hogan began painting in earnest shortly after he retired in 2001. He has a doctorate in Physiology and Biophysics, and his professional life was in the scientific area, through research, teaching, and administration. His early paintings were traditional and very linear in approach. Landscapes are the primary focus of his paintings reflective of boyhood memories in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas. Jurors have described his works as ethereal, mystical, muted, and “foggy.”
Tending to work in themed suites, most of Terri Jordan’s work can be classified as narrative figurative portraits. In 2016, she was selected for the Contemporary Women Artists of the U.S. Exhibition in California. In 2012, Terri was one of 25 women artists selected to participate in the National juried exhibit, titled “Where Do We Go from Here? The Shape of Things to Come” at the RCC Wiseman Gallery in Grants Pass, Oregon. She has won numerous awards for her paintings and is in collections throughout the U. S., Italy, and England.
Having a varied career in accounting, linguistics, music, and financial Management, Martin was always interested in art, but only began painting seriously after he retired at age 65. Martin’s painting of jazz musicians and a keyboard is his signature artwork, but it is his use of bold, colorful brushstrokes that mark his painting style in abstracts, land and seascapes as well. Larry’s work can be found in a number of public and private art collections both in the United States and abroad and has appeared in Oxford University Press, Cambridge University, and other international publications.
