Unicorn Power! 

Unicorns are real. And so is this art show.

"Super-Epic Memphis Unicorn Magical Exhibition Show" at Marshall Arts Gallery is no joke, even though it's scheduled for April Fools' Day. The jury is still out on the existence of unicorns, but don't tell that to show organizer Ian Lemmonds.

"The real reason the show is on April Fools' Day is because everyone said we'd be considered fools to do an art show about unicorns. So yes, we are fools — fools for the magical power and splendor that exists in our mono-horned friends, the unicorns," Lemmonds says.

The show features unicorn-themed artwork by Greely Myatt, Bobby Spillman, Margaret Munz-Losch, Carl E. Moore, and others. Plus, Lemmonds says there will be a life-size unicorn there that guests can sit on. Of course, it's not a live unicorn but rather a unicorn made of wood and plaster.

"While it will probably not be as comfortable as an actual unicorn, who are softer, furrier, and more magical, it will still be the only opportunity most of us have to have our picture made on a unicorn this week," Lemmonds says.

And if that isn't enough unicorn enchantment for the evening, Memphis unicorn-horn headband crafter and artist Amoxelle Pill will be doing a little cosplay (costumed role play) based on the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic TV series.

Super-Epic Memphis Unicorn Magical Exhibition Show, Monday, April 1st, 5:30-8 p.m. at Marshall Arts Gallery, 639 Marshall (679-6837).
