Please excuse our mess ... the website for the Clarksville Arts & Heritage Development Council is currently under construction. In the meantime, tickets for our Valentine's Afternoon with the Arts on Sunday, February 14, may be reserved below. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Clarksvilleans can buy Valentine's gifts from local artists, sample champagne and heart-healthy chocolates from local caterers, and enjoy chamber music by local musicians at the seventh annual Valentine’s Day Afternoon with the Arts on Sunday, February 14.
The Clarksville Arts & Heritage Development Council and F&M Bank are hosting this event from 1pm until 4pm in F&M Bank's Franklin Room (50 Franklin Street), with its spectacular views of downtown and the Cumberland River.
Over the past seven years, this event has showcased the work of over 70 talented local artists. Featured artists for this year's Valentine's Day Afternoon with the Arts include the following:
As artists are often the first to donate their works to area organizations for auctions and fundraisers, this event is AHDC's way of recognizing their contributions to the community and giving them a chance to sell their work with no fees attached.
AHDC also uses the event to showcase the edible art of local caterers. Some past contributors of chocolate confections have been Lovin' Spoonful Cafe, The Looking Glass, Edward’s Steakhouse, Blackhorse Pub and Brewery, Gingham Cafe, Fire and Ice Catering, Chartwells, Silke's Old World Bread and Bakery, Ruby Tuesday and Sweetest Batch Cupcakery. Margie Crain always offers savory appetizers to complement the chocolates.
What both sets of individuals — artists and caterers — contribute to our local economy is sometimes overlooked. Through this Valentine’s event, Arts and Heritage recognizes the economic and quality-of-life importance to Clarksville of these community members.
Tickets are $25 each, or two for $40. Reservations can be made via the below button, or by calling 931.551.8870.
