Community and Creativity on Display in Clarksville

One of the largest pieces on display

As part of it’s one-year anniversary, the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone in Clarksville, TN held a fantastic art exhibition on Saturday, August 10.

The Clinic’s community room and hallways were transformed into an art gallery with close to 40 artists and 75 pieces of art on display. Most of the art was on sale, with the Cohen Clinic keeping 40% of each purchase.

“This was a wonderful day for the clinic and many local veteran artists. Our clinic routinely holds workshops, where our clients and community members can come together and share experiences while finding new creative outlets,” said Lisa Eggebeen, Clinic Director.

CVN Ambassador Ryan Pitts was in town to help celebrate the first anniversary of the clinic. Pitts made several local media appearances, including local radio stations Q108 and the Beaver 100.3.

“This event is really all about community. This clinic is really engaged with the local community and I’ve learned that for many clients, creating art and developing new bonds inside the clinic with staff and fellow veterans has been invaluable,” Pitts said.

There was a wide variety of work on display including paintings, sculptures, photography, crocheted items, decorative ceramic plates and more.
