Lavender’s Landscape

11/12/17 – 01/14/18
10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Anthony Lee
Latex and Urethane on Panel, Triptych, 2017

Composing a triptych, these works by artist Anthony Lee are a continuous, long-scale, lavender tonal gradient, equal in light value but demonstrating the effect of desaturation. Viewed from left to right, it begins as  intense lavender, and then through gradation it finishes into its grey equivalent. This adds a fourth-dimensional sense of movement or transfer within the works, allowing the viewer’s eyes to calmly experience the space in the works as they seemlessly shift color.

Art/Race/Violence: A Collaborative Response

11/12/17 – 01/11/18
10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Art/Race/Violence: A Collaborative Response is a multidisciplinary project organized by visual culture historian Dr. Earnestine Jenkins and artist Richard Lou in collaboration with Crosstown Arts. Through this project, local artists collectively explore intersections of race and systemic violence through the lens of cultural expression. Conceived to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ell Persons’ very public murder by members of the Memphis community through the act of lynching, the project was further inspired by recent events to memorialize lynching sites in the broader Memphis community in an effort to bring about greater understanding of racial oppression and violence in the South.

Potluck

08/19/17
4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Collaborative exhibition of place setting-inspired art. At a typical potluck, individuals are asked to contribute a shared food item.
