Murfree Gallery in Rutherford County Property Assessors Office has a new exhibit



MTSU's Murfree Gallery will be showcasing the works of local artist Karen Brackman starting Friday, November 13. The reception will be held from 3:00 to 4:00 pm in Rutherford County Property Assessors Office.

Her work spans a variety of media including watercolor, acrylic, and even wood burning. Her delicately rendered nature scenes bring the calmness and beauty of the outdoors and the changing seasons inside the gallery for this exhibit, featuring earthy colors and finely rendered landscapes.

A native New Yorker, Ms. Brackman attended Syracuse University and later the State University of Oswego where she fostered her passion for the arts. She now lives in Murfreesboro where she teaches art classes at the St. Claire Senior Center and is a member of the North Rutherford Woodworkers. Her work has also been featured in exhibits all over Rutherford County, including The White Oak Show in Woodbury, TN and Murfreesboro's Greenway Show.

Karen Brackman's work will be on display at the Murfree Gallery from November 13, 2015 until March 1, 2016. The gallery is located on the second floor inside the Rutherford County Property Assessors Office and is open from 8:00 to 4:00 on weekdays. The gallery is closed on state holidays.
