Memphis Connections at Marshall Arts

Posted By on Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 3:55 PM

Dwayne Butcher presents his "Memphis Connections" exhibit tonight from 6-9 p.m. at the Marshall Arts Gallery for one night only. He chose eight artists including himself to seek out a partner in a collaborative project of their choosing in the hopes of initiating new dialogue between artists in the area, and also outside of it.

Painter Melissa Dunn and filmmaker Brian Pera are among the featured pairings, creating images of women grooming projected from a muted-homelike background, inspired by their mutual love of 50s film magazines. The other collaborations are just as intriguing and beautifully executed, with mediums spanning printmaking, sculpture, and paint. Let's hope this joining of forces leads to more and more great works and shows.
