Brentwood library will display the work of two Tennessee artists

By MATT BLOIS

The John P. Holt Brentwood Library will display art from two local artists this month.

The exhibition will feature landscape paintings by Larry Richardson and pottery from Pat Sesson. Library patrons can see the works during regular hours. 

The library — along with the Friends of the Brentwood Library — hosts different artists each month. The art is available for purchase.

Pottery by Pat Sesson frequently has animal motifs.

Richardson’s landscape paintings are inspired by the Cumberland River. He grew up in rural Kentucky, and now lives between the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. In addition to his art he had a career as a naturalist, wildlife professional and writer.

He was previously the editor-in-chief of Tennessee Conservationist, a magazine produced by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. His latest book is called “Tennessee Wilderness — A Legacy Endures.”

Sesson is a Middle Tennessee potter who makes functional and decorative pieces influenced by her love of nature and God. She grew up in a farming family in West Tennessee, and her work often includes animals.

All of her pottery is dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.
