Landscape Paintings
By Meg Garrett
Through Sept. 10
Arts Center of Cannon County
Meg Garrett is a landscape painter taking inspiration from the natural and rural landscape of Middle Tennessee. Meg is a self-taught artist, who started painting seven years ago. Though she came to painting late in life she has dedicated herself to her art. Meg takes great pleasure in the process of painting and in that process captures a moment in time from the observation of an old barn to that of a quiet creek. She works exclusively in oil paints. Highlights from the show include images from Raven Point on the Fiery Gizzard Trail, the Great Falls on the Caney Fork, the Harpeth River, and rock outcroppings in Woodbury.

Tennessee Mafia Jug Band
Friday, Aug, 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Arts Center of Cannon County
The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band have shamelessly stolen a feature of the old Roy Acuff Show– a bit known as “Pap & the Jug Band.“ This frolicking foursome brightens up the stage with rib-tickling old time tunes. Even better, they have an utter lack of self-consciousness (and some might say any sense of decorum). The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band not only knows the music, they wear the costumes, tell corny jokes and even do slapstick gags that throw a cable-tv-numbed audience into hysterics. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band includes Leroy Troy - “The Tennessee Slicker”, David “Ferg” Ferguson, Dan Kelly, and Mike Armistead This group will give you a lot of “hot picking”, “powerful harmony singing” and “riotous hijinks” that are guaranteed to perk you up.
Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $13 for students, seniors and groups and may be purchased by calling the box office at 615-563-2787 Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or online at
