    Introduced at The Walter Anderson Museum of Art this summer, Memphis College of Art proudly presents The Sound & The Gulf, a retrospective exhibition celebrating 34 years of artwork inspired by the wilderness landscape of Horn Island.

    For more than three decades, Memphis College of Art students have followed in the footsteps of artist Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965) as they’ve made a series of 12-day excursions by boat to Horn Island, an uninhabited barrier island off the coast of Mississippi.

    The exhibition, directly following the 35th annual Horn Island Exhibition, looks back at this impressive and inspiring journey through the eyes of these intrepid creators.

    When: September 13-November 3, 2019

    Reception Sunday, September 15, 3-5 p.m.

    Film2Fiber2Film

    For the past year, Judith Dierkes has been working in film, or rather working with film. She was consumed by the idea of crocheting film together last summer, and spent the fall exploring the best way to give the filmstrips a new life. The result, Film2Fiber, became an installation at the University of Memphis ArtLab in spring 2019. Some of that work is included in this exhibit.

     

    With this show, Judith Comes full circle by taking the fiber to film in quilted wall hangings using a film print fabric. The fabric was designed for St. Jude back when it had a partnership with Hancock Fabrics; and each year there was a quilt challenge where participants had to use 80% of the St. Jude fabric to make a quilt. The quilts were interpretations of a child’s dream, and after the challenge they were donated to children at St. Jude. Dierkes participated each year.

    Now she uses the film print fabric to comment on filmmaking. Judith created Film2Fiber2Film at Playhouse because it is one of the venues for the Indie Memphis Film Festival. She will have some small work for sale only at the reception.

    With an amazing eight wins as “Las Vegas Magicians of the Year,” their 18-year run at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino makes them the longest running and one of the most-beloved headline acts in Las Vegas history, outselling every other resident magician on The Strip.

    Currently, they host the hit series Penn & Teller: Fool Us! for The CW Network, on which up-and-comers and magic veterans try to fool Penn & Teller for a chance to star in the duo’s hit Las Vegas stage show. The show was nominated for a 2017 Critic’s Choice Award and returned for a sixth hit season in 2019. | Tickets $32.50 - $80"
