Things that Move Me, the work of Mary Spellings
March 4 - 31


Spellings is a West Tennessee artist who has earned numerous awards including signature status in seven regional Watercolor Societies. Her work is included in numerous public collections across the South.  She is co-founder of 'Art in the Village', a cooperative gallery in Jackson, Tennessee that offers educational opportunities and exhibition space for thirty artists.  Mary captures the light and feeling of her everyday world with a deeply spiritual artist's eye.  “Things that move me...the smile of a child, thoughtful lines etched on faces, chipped paint, weathered surfaces, and historic buildings...they all are part of the beauty of God's creation.” 

Meet Mary Spellings and learn about her work at her reception on Sunday, March 10 from 2-4 pm.


SILKSATIONS- Solo Exhibit by Phyllis Boger
March 1 - April 29


“I have been painting on fabric for two decades. For this exhibition I have used silk as my canvas and mainly dyes as  paint to create these paintings and collages. Sometimes the dyes were applied directly to the silk with a traditional brush, but other times I folded, wrapped, crimped  and tied the silk in the Japanese Shabori method.” There are several pieces where the sunlight created images after special sun sensitive paints were applied.  Each silk painting has been individually steamed to insure permanency.  Phyllis invites viewers to take an artistic journey through the African dunes of Namibia and a stroll through Memphis Botanic Garden.  


The Fratelli's Cafe Gallery monthly art exhibits are on display in Fratelli's Cafe Gallery during cafe hours. Monday - Saturday 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.
