Clements proudly offers the collection of the Tennessee Aquarium. The area where the Tennessee River flows is known for its outstanding folk artists and artisans. Skills and tradtions passed down through the generations give life to artwork made to reflect the relationship between people and place. Artists of this region are often self taught, using the elements of river and earth around them for their own individual methods of expression. This curated collection represents the resilience and imagination of those that call the Tennessee River home.
