  • Visual Arts Exhibit: Danny Broadway—The Chosen Ones

    Feb 25th, 2020
    10:00am - 5:00pm
    Germantown Performing Arts Center, 1801 Exeter Road, Germantown, TN 38138

    GPAC CELEBRATES THE VISUAL ARTS BY EXHIBITING A DIVERSE COLLECTION OF ARTWORK BY EMERGING AND PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE REGION LIKE DANNY BROADWAY.

    IN THE LOBBY GALLERY FEBRUARY 3 - MARCH 5
    WITH AN ARTIST’S RECEPTION ON
    FEBRUARY 8 FROM 5:00 - 7:00PM. EVERYONE IS WELCOME

    As a working artist, I create art with an uncompromised passion – color, composition, line, shape and form are all essential elements used to set moods and illustrate aspects of human life. I seek to communicate with people everywhere with my work which, although I view it as the sum of my thoughts, develops a voice of its own.

    I am inspired by historical themes, family stories, current issues, people, music, sounds, moods, books I read. My palette changes with the seasons too: bright in the summer and darker in winter. There are so many things that speak to me.

    Currently, I am working to create a new body of work, experimenting with different media types, and striving to find that creative spark that visually evokes emotion, memory, and the senses.

    As a young boy, I have memories of me and my sister mixing pigments to paint our pictures. Then, in high school, I had a teacher who recognized my potential and took the time to nurture my budding talent. I ultimately obtained a fine arts degree from the University of Memphis, where I was commissioned to provide paintings as a major feature of the University’s Black History Month. Nationwide galleries, some of the country’s most respected art venues, and Fortune 500 companies have featured my work including, PBS Television, FedEx, the Memphis Grizzlies, Major League Baseball, and the National Civil Rights Museum.

    My dedication to the community is evinced through my teaching students of all ages through organizations such as The Purple House, River Arts International, and Memphis Consolidated Schools. In addition, I use my talent and gallery space to rally support for charitable organizations such as the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, The American Liver Foundation, The American Heart Association, The March of Dimes, Friends for Life, Books from Birth, Tennessee Shakespeare Company, The Women’s Foundation, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Memphis.

    What is Bomba?

    Bomba dates back to the early European colonial period in Puerto Rico. It comes out of the musical traditions brought by enslaved Africans in the 17th century. To them, bomba music was a source of political and spiritual expression. The lyrics conveyed a sense of anger and sadness about their condition, and songs served as a catalyst for rebellions and uprisings.

  • Nick Pagliari with Me & Leah in The Green Room

    Feb 29th, 2020
    9:00pm - 11:00pm
    Crosstown Arts, The Green Room 1350 Concourse Ave., Suite 280 Memphis, TN 38104 United States

    Join us in The Green Room at Crosstown Arts for a performance by former Memphian and singer/songwriter Nick Pagliari with local duo Me & Leah.

    Tickets: $10
    Doors at 8:30 pm | Performance at 9 pm

    Years before kicking off his career as a folk-rock singer/songwriter, Nick Pagliari grew up in Memphis, TN, raised on the soulful sounds of the south. Stax classics and Muscle Shoals hits filled the family jukebox, along with songs by Billy Joel, the Beach Boys, and Motown groups. Nick later moved to Nashville, where he released a pair of acclaimed albums before heading west to Austin. Even so, that childhood soundtrack — a blend of roots, rhythm, and raw melody — always felt like home.

    Midway, Pagliari’s third record — and first in over a decade — finds him revisiting the sounds that helped shape his love for music. Fueled by sharp songwriting, blasts of brass, swirling organ, and rootsy arrangements, it’s an Americana album that focuses on Memphis soul rather than Nashville twang.

    Influenced by icons like Tom Petty, Van Morrison, and the Band, his songs have always packed a direct punch, rooted in the fuss-free appeal of his voice and folksy songwriting. Those same ingredients ground Midway, but so does Pagliari’s broadened perspective. Those milestones rear their heads throughout Midway, influencing songs like “The Heart is a Muscle” — a salute to his wife, filled with horn arrangements by producer/multi-instrumentalist Jon Estes (Abigail Washburn, Langhorne Slim), grooves from drummer Jamie Dick (Rhiannon Giddens, Milk Carton Kids), and Robbie Robertson-worthy guitar riffs by Jeremy Fetzer (Steelism) — and the heartland rocker “Damn These Words,” written from the perspective of his autistic son.

    This is an album whose warm, vintage-inspired sound nods to the past while pushing toward something new. The road goes on forever, and Pagliari — midway through or not — is charting his own course.

    GPAC CELEBRATES THE VISUAL ARTS BY EXHIBITING A DIVERSE COLLECTION OF ARTWORK BY EMERGING AND PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE REGION LIKE DANNY BROADWAY.

    IN THE LOBBY GALLERY FEBRUARY 3 - MARCH 5
    WITH AN ARTIST’S RECEPTION ON
    FEBRUARY 8 FROM 5:00 - 7:00PM. EVERYONE IS WELCOME

    As a working artist, I create art with an uncompromised passion – color, composition, line, shape and form are all essential elements used to set moods and illustrate aspects of human life. I seek to communicate with people everywhere with my work which, although I view it as the sum of my thoughts, develops a voice of its own.

    I am inspired by historical themes, family stories, current issues, people, music, sounds, moods, books I read. My palette changes with the seasons too: bright in the summer and darker in winter. There are so many things that speak to me.

    Currently, I am working to create a new body of work, experimenting with different media types, and striving to find that creative spark that visually evokes emotion, memory, and the senses.

    As a young boy, I have memories of me and my sister mixing pigments to paint our pictures. Then, in high school, I had a teacher who recognized my potential and took the time to nurture my budding talent. I ultimately obtained a fine arts degree from the University of Memphis, where I was commissioned to provide paintings as a major feature of the University’s Black History Month. Nationwide galleries, some of the country’s most respected art venues, and Fortune 500 companies have featured my work including, PBS Television, FedEx, the Memphis Grizzlies, Major League Baseball, and the National Civil Rights Museum.

    My dedication to the community is evinced through my teaching students of all ages through organizations such as The Purple House, River Arts International, and Memphis Consolidated Schools. In addition, I use my talent and gallery space to rally support for charitable organizations such as the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, The American Liver Foundation, The American Heart Association, The March of Dimes, Friends for Life, Books from Birth, Tennessee Shakespeare Company, The Women’s Foundation, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Memphis.

    IN THE LOBBY GALLERY FEBRUARY 3 - MARCH 5
    WITH AN ARTIST’S RECEPTION ON
    FEBRUARY 8 FROM 5:00 - 7:00PM. EVERYONE IS WELCOME

    As a working artist, I create art with an uncompromised passion – color, composition, line, shape and form are all essential elements used to set moods and illustrate aspects of human life. I seek to communicate with people everywhere with my work which, although I view it as the sum of my thoughts, develops a voice of its own.

    I am inspired by historical themes, family stories, current issues, people, music, sounds, moods, books I read. My palette changes with the seasons too: bright in the summer and darker in winter. There are so many things that speak to me.

    Currently, I am working to create a new body of work, experimenting with different media types, and striving to find that creative spark that visually evokes emotion, memory, and the senses.

    As a young boy, I have memories of me and my sister mixing pigments to paint our pictures. Then, in high school, I had a teacher who recognized my potential and took the time to nurture my budding talent. I ultimately obtained a fine arts degree from the University of Memphis, where I was commissioned to provide paintings as a major feature of the University’s Black History Month. Nationwide galleries, some of the country’s most respected art venues, and Fortune 500 companies have featured my work including, PBS Television, FedEx, the Memphis Grizzlies, Major League Baseball, and the National Civil Rights Museum.

    My dedication to the community is evinced through my teaching students of all ages through organizations such as The Purple House, River Arts International, and Memphis Consolidated Schools. In addition, I use my talent and gallery space to rally support for charitable organizations such as the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, The American Liver Foundation, The American Heart Association, The March of Dimes, Friends for Life, Books from Birth, Tennessee Shakespeare Company, The Women’s Foundation, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Memphis.

  • Alice Hasen & the Blaze with Blueshift Ensemble in The Green Room

    7:30pm - 9:30pm
    Crosstown Arts, The Green Room 1350 Concourse Ave., Suite 280 Memphis, TN 38104 United States

    Crosstown Arts presents Alice Hansen & the Blaze with an opening performance by Blueshift Ensemble in The Green Room.

    Tickets: $10
    Doors at 7 pm | Show at 7:30 pm

    Born in Vermont and based in Memphis, Alice Hasen is a professional violinist, recording artist, and songwriter. She leads Alice Hasen & the Blaze and is part of the Blackwater Trio, an acoustic rock band. Alice is known for her unique playing style, which combines the virtuosity of her classical upbringing with the freedom and creativity of improvisation.

    She has been called “one in a million” by Alan Rowoth, founder of folkmusic.org, and “a monster talent” by Jim Hurst, nationally acclaimed guitarist. She is most at home at the crossroads of genre, pushing the traditional sounds of violin and fiddle out of their comfort zones and into the realms of jazz, pop, funk, and rock.

    In September 2019, Alice released her debut solo album, “Violintro,” which features songs written and co-written by Alice and performances by Memphis musicians. Bluff City Life called Violintro “an impressive showcase of the sheer breadth of Hasen’s talents across all genres… Hasen has made her Violintro as an emerging star.” Ric Chetter of Radio Memphis called it “one of the most dynamic sounds out there.”

    Blueshift is a Memphis­-based contemporary chamber music ensemble dedicated to bringing artists and audiences together through artistic collaboration. By programming both new and existing classical repertoire alongside multi­-genre collaborations, Blueshift aims to connect a wider audience to today’s classical music. The ensemble draws upon Memphis’s uniquely diverse musical heritage by combining classical music with popular music genres such as rock, blues, soul, and hip hop and featuring local musicians, visual artists, and composers. The astronomical term “blueshift” indicates an object’s moving closer toward the observer. Blueshift aims to bring concert music and art out of the concert hall and into the Memphis community.

    MARCH 21 FROM 5:00 - 7:00PM. EVERYONE IS WELCOME

    A Native of Thailand, Pam has lived in the South for the past thirty years. Artist, mother and grandmother, she describes her artistic process as one of prayer or praise, a gift from GOD.
    An innate understanding of color and shape emerged following an illness, and Pam began to paint and sculpt. She often uses fabric, metal, and wood as part of her creative medium. Pam's art content is always simple, pure and almost spiritual ... always expressive of her gratitude. Pam's work has been on exhibition in Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, England, The Netherlands, Korea and Thailand. Recent shows include The Crosstown Concourse Art Bar and the Germantown Performing Arts Center. Pam has been commissioned to create works that are part of the Methodist Germantown Hospital's permanent collection, St Georges Independent School permanent collection and the Mississippi Good Will Corporation permanent collection.

    Pam's art is also part of many private collections both in the United States and abroad.
