Hornsby's "Fracture" Series Solo Exhibition Debuts at the Customs House Museum

Hornsby's first solo exhibition in the Customs House Museum & Cultural Center's coveted Crouch Gallery features 10 pieces of artwork from his “Fracture” series, which range in size from 43" x 43” to 90" x 90" and consists of 98 canvases. Upon entrance to the gallery, the focal point is the NYC-award-winning "Fracture 1," which sets the stage and begins the "Fracture" story with its impending size and stark imagery.

Stars in their own rights, the other 9 pieces—"F-Attack," "F-Ball," "F-Circle", "F-Defend," "F-Flight," "F-Nest," "F-Pod 2," "F-Try," and "F-X"—expand the "Fracture" story and reveal Hornsby's growth in the exploration of the ever-present tensions and contradictions existing in the human spirit.

Visitors from across Tennessee as well as other states attended the "Fracture" exhibition's opening reception held Thurs., Mar. 9, 2017.

Built in 1898, the Customs House Museum is located in the heart of historic downtown Clarksville and is Tennessee’s second largest general museum with more than 35,000 square feet of exhibit space, 20,000 permanent pieces, and hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Hornsby's "Fracture" series is also being featured in the April 2017 issue of the Nashville Arts Magazine.
