Clarksville museum to feature photography of Conner family
SoVaNow.com / March 28, 2013The Clarksville Regional Museum, as part of its ongoing series promoting local artists, will showcase the art of David Conner II and his sons, James and Tripp.
Museum Director Jackie Lilly said readers of The Mecklenburg Sun know Conner for his sports photography. However, she wanted to show off his lesser-known works — from tributes to his late wife, Elizabeth, to his photographs of clouds over the Dan River. Joining him in the exhibit are sons Tripp and James, both photographers in their own right.
Lilly said "because so much of David's work is a memorial to his wife, who died of breast cancer, and with April being breast cancer awareness month, it seems fitting that our first exhibit is David's art."
She also thanked his mother-in-law, Billie Cope of Clarksville, for helping arrange the exhibit. The museum, which has been on winter hiatus, will reopen to the public April 5.
Conner, staff photographer and webmaster for tthe News & Record, is a Clarksville native.
The Clarksville Regional Museum will be open Friday through Sunday beginning April 5. Lilly said she hopes everyone will stop by.
