Best Art Instagrams of the Week: Flyer Round-up

Posted By on Sat, Jul 25, 2015 at 7:01 PM

Wondering which Memphis-based (or Memphis-originated) artists to follow on Instagram? Allow us to help.

Filmmaker and sculptor Brian Pera (@brian__pera) is currently in production on a film project dubbed "Sorry Not Sorry", featuring fellow artists Terri Phillips and Joel Parsons. 

Johnathan Robert Payne (@johnrobertpayne) and D'Angelo Lovell Williams (@limitedomnishit) collaborated on a series of photographs and drawings that were on view at First Congregational Church earlier this week. 

Thank you to everyone who came out tonight! It meant a lot to @limitedomnishit and I. #roomtolet

Kong Wee Pang (@kongweepang) and Jay Crum (@crumjay) installed "Walking Eyes", a collaborative series of works on paper and fabric, at Crosstown Arts. 

Memphis-bred cartoonist and illustrator Derrick Dent (@dentslashink) lives in New York now, but that hasn't changed his quick draw style. 

Avoiding any copyright issues, I'll just call this People Folks of New York City Place.

Another Memphis trained artist-to-watch: Rhodes grad Esther Ruiz, whose glow-y neon sculptures are making waves in NYC.
