Light And Shadow - Luz y Sombras // Agustin Díaz and Francisco Gonzalez in Visitors Center Gallery

About The Show Life is a duality which is expressed and creates destiny, it is an internal fight between positivity and negativity, between the truth and the absence of it; and it is determined by the search of authenticity or imitation. Light floods everything, revealing a world of shapes and colors, obscurity gives us shadows and the tones that compliment it. “Light and Shadows” are eternal opposites that reach a harmonic equilibrium in the plastic arts that we present to you here....

At Cross Purpose // Erin Jennings // Fratelli's Cafe Gallery

About The Show " At Cross-Purpose is a survey of two bodies of work comprised of night and infrared landscape photographs. While both series function autonomously, each addresses an inherent anxiety to do with perception and viewing. Our relationship with darkness is fraught with longstanding tension derived from a justified fear of potential harm due to an inability to assess one’s surroundings. This work is an exploration of existence outside of the safety of the domicile and an... Read More

"Along The Garden Path" by Harrison and June Caldwell of Caldwell Forge and Enamel

About The Show " Along the Garden Path  invites the viewer to look with truly open eyes at the beauty that is all around us. Too often, we look without seeing, walk by without stopping, or pass the time without really living each moment. The “path,” in life as in art, is before us. We must step into each moment in mindfulness."    - June Caldwell Artist MBG Interview MBG: June, your mediums are both oil painting (is it acrylic?) and enamel on... Read More

"On The Grounds" by the students of the Fred Rawlinson Atelier

About the show from Fred Rawlinson:  "On the Grounds refers to a collection of paintings that were created by the Atelier Artists of Fred Rawlinson’s Studio and Gallery in Germantown TN. The artists scheduled field trips to the Memphis Botanic Garden to sketch and photograph. Images from these field trips were then taken back to the studio where they were used as inspiration for the paintings to be displayed at the garden. Thus, every painting in this show is inspired from an... Read More

Ex Voto // Katie Maish // Fratelli's Cafe And Gallery

About The Show: "This body of work is about my son, Jack, and the way my husband and I brought him into the world via in vitro fertilization. The IVF process is intensive, fascinating and, while emotionally and physically exhausting, completely worth it. During this process, I thought about the fertility rituals and festivals around the world and the way they incorporate elements of the natural world into them. For instance, Hōnen Matsuri is a fertility... Read More

The Secret Life Of Trees // Miriam Oliphant // Visitor Center Gallery

About The Show:  "I love the inspiring richness of Trees. They absorb powerful earth energy, which flows through them, up and out toward the light of the heavens, as they reach for the source. Their radiance flows out to all in their presence. Unseen, magical qualities can be experienced and conjured through trees - the light and energy of the creator in its various forms. Secret worlds have long been imagined through and around trees. In this body of work, I joyfully explore... Read More

"Arrangements" by Amy Hartelust Fratelli's Cafe Gallery

On exhibit in Fratelli’s Cafe Gallery from August 3 - August 30  *  Please stop in and have a look even if you aren't dining! All of Amy’s paintings are a piece of eye candy—sweet and colorful. Even after the immediate blast of pleasure from seeing a bright and pretty object something about this work begs me to keep looking. Perhaps it’s that they are simple yet complex, both flat and 3-dimensional at this possible? I can feel the consideration that has gone... Read More
